From the back cover: On a hill overlooking the Aegean Sea in Turkey, an international team of archaeologists discovers a stone box that first-century Jews used to rebury their dead. The box’s Aramaic inscription: Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ. Sophia Altay, the beautiful French-Turkish archaeological who heads the team, tries to keep the discovery secret until she can authenticate the ossuary. She knows that people will kill to obtain the relics—and to suppress the box’s other contents, documents that could alter Western history.
Joseph Travers, an American sent to Turkey to evaluate the archaeological dig, soon finds himself pulled into the web of betrayal, reprisal, and violence. In his journey through Istanbul’s mosques and palaces, the archaeological sites around ancient Ephesus, and, ultimately, the strange and mystical terrain of Cappadocia, he comes to understand the epochal meaning of the bone box.
Who knew an archaeological dig could be so interesting? There are those that want to kill for the contents of the box and unless properly verified can alter everything that is held in belief. Mr. Amberg has provided us with a highly complicated plot. Both Joseph Travers and Sophia Altay are really interesting characters that develop and become more interesting as the story goes on. “Bone Box” is loaded with twists and turns that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Mr. Amberg has provided us with a fairly exciting book and well worth the read.
