The Bone Chamber by Robin Burcell

10 Critic Reviews

Conspiracy buffs will enjoy this convoluted saga, which gains authenticity from Burcell’s FBI training, but it’s a mite short of the pulse-pounding tension of its forerunners.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

“A very talented writer” (Lee Child), who is “smart, tough, and right on the mark” (Catherine Coulter), and “among the best writers of crime fiction” (Jan Burke), Anthony Award-winning author Robin Burcell broadens her canvas with The Bone Chamber—an electrifying thriller that recalls the best of James Rollins and Dan Brown as it races across the globe. An extraordinary adventure that combines C.S.I. forensic investigation with global conspiracy and ancient secrets of the Vatican and the Knights Templar, The Bone Chamber is a non-stop thrill ride that never slows down.

It works as a standalone but I think I would have been more attached to the character if I had read the first book.
