THRILLER FANS WILL LOVE MILTON, A TRUE HERO
Young sleuth Milton Lessing is sent to Cyprus to find the killer of his firm’s local manager, the manager’s uncle, and a precious stolen icon. Milton is no ordinary hero of crime stories. He is shorter than average, bespectacled, a scholar of human nature and criminology, but, as the son of a cop, he can handle himself. He combines high intelligence with moral probity and good taste, the rare combination of a true hero, which he will have to become before his ordeal is over.
On the plane, he meets Joe, who tells him his daughter Elena, an archaeologist, can help him find the icon.
Milton enters a world of villainy. His arrival causes panic among people who have everything to lose, including:
? the nosy company secretary,
? the scheming financial adviser of a Russian countess and her servants,
? a ruthless real estate mogul, whose empire is tottering,
? his Harvard-educated sales manager,
? the sexy wife of a local politician, whose affair would ruin her husband’s career,
? The hidden Mr. Big, the brains behind the theft, who has a terrible secret,
? the master fence, an art professor in exile, and his brilliant female artist.
A cryptic character known as The Voice sends an assassin to kill Milton, and others entangled in various schemes, each separately plan to eliminate the nosy detective.
Enter Elena, the most beautiful woman Milton has ever seen, but as icy and remote as Diana. They form a great duo. He, with his sharp mind, and she with her psychic and martial arts skills, complement each other to a T. Will Milton, an unlikely Adonis, win her love?
From the abbot of a remote monastery, who seems too eager get the insurance money for the icon, they learn that a Russian monk had visited there.
On the way back from the monastery, an attempt is made on Milton’s life, but Elena saves them.
At the Bacchus café, Elena introduces Milton to her friend Sabazjos, who embodies male beauty just as she embodies female beauty and who becomes another ally.
Under the influence of wine he drank at the monastery, Milton dreams that his new friends are reincarnations of Zeno, Aphrodite, and Dionysus. Are they real, or are they from another world?
When Milton tells Callia, museum director, about the Russian connection, she arranges for him to meet Countess Bolkonskaya, scion of the Russian community.
The inspector, meanwhile, summons Milton to the morgue and shows him two corpses, a monk, who was found hanged, and a thief, who took Milton’s picture in the hotel. Who is behind these unrelated murders? The police throw Milton under the bus. The inspector is livid and suggests that Milton leave the island before the “deadly icon” claims more lives.
At the countess’s Milton meets Gregory, her crooked financial adviser, and her wicked servants, Boris and his wife Olga. While viewing the countess’s dazzling art collection, Milton asks questions about The Holy Trinity, a precious icon he suspects is fake. Has he stumbled on another art scheme? Is this another deadly icon? Gregory is nonplussed and invites Milton to a party on board his yacht.
Milton goes to the party and during the merrymaking slips below to search the staterooms. While examining the contents of a closet, he feels a hand on his shoulder, turns around, and everything goes black.
Milton’s friends watch in dismay as the lights of the yacht recede into the blackness of the night. Milton has been kidnapped! Who can save him?
Travel to exotic Cyprus to find out and meet a host of memorable good and evil characters in this epic, informative, and gripping novel that asks the big existential questions. Go back in time and see Martin Luther throw the inkwell. Follow in the footsteps of St. Paul, and attend Latin Mass in the ancient church at St. Paul’s pillar, where Christianity got its start in 45 A.D. and learn why atheism is imp
