Budapest, Hungary. When a priest is murdered at the Basilica of St Stephen and the Holy Right relic is stolen, the ultra-nationalist Eröszak party calls for retribution and anti-Semitic violence erupts in the city.
Dr Morgan Sierra, psychologist and ARKANE agent, finds herself trapped inside the synagogue with Zoltan Fischer, a Hungarian Jewish security advisor.

A gritty action packed thriller
yes, this story is a great break from the norm in the series and well worth a listen.
any of the Arkane series by J.F Penn all of them are gripping and this one is especially packed with action.
Veronica immerses the listener and her great vocal abilities shine through.
it kept me on edge the whole way through due to its high action level.
A great read and interesting diversion from the other books in the Arkane series. Crammed with action, historical interest and the unusual setting of Budapest.

Gripping and well researched novella
I would recommend this novella to thriller and history buffs as well as anyone who likes their stories a bit dark because it is a well researched, creates a vivid and chilling picture of Budapest's past,present and a hypothetical future where the horrors of the past could easily be enacted again.
Morgan Sierra is a kick-ass heroine with the right combination of superior intellect and combat skills.
The scene with the shootings of innocent people at the shoes on the Danube was evocative and poignant. The horrors suffered in WW2 could so easily be suffered again.
I had already read the novella on Kindle but I also enjoy listening to J.F.Penn's books too. There is a different feel to it on audio - it becomes even more chilling. The length of the novella is a great for listening to during commutes. Bring on the traffic jams...
Zoltan makes a good hero. There is definitely sizzle between him and Morgan.
