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.

Gripping and well researched novella

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Morgan Sierra is a kick-ass heroine with the right combination of superior intellect and combat skills.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

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.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

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...

Any additional comments?

Zoltan makes a good hero. There is definitely sizzle between him and Morgan.
