“Fast-paced and chilling, an electrifying narrative that combines a historical thriller with modern speed and humor.”

“Levelheaded Inspector Antione Marcas must begrudgingly team up with Special Agent Jade Zewinski—a hard-hitting, quick-tempered woman with a wit to match her physical stamina—to solve a crime that links together thousands of years of history and elitist societies that jockey for domination. But with Marcas’ intimate knowledge of Freemasonry as their best asset and Jade’s intense hatred for this brotherhood, the two must overcome their differences in order to track down the murderer of a young archivist....

Fast-paced and chilling “Shadow Ritual” is an electrifying narrative that combines a historical thriller with modern speed and humor. Giacometti and Ravenne seamlessly weave together different cultures and character perspectives. The result is a fuller reading experience that crosses borders—from Rome to Paris to Jerusalem. Translated by Anne Trager “Shadow Ritual” retains its wonderful and distinct storytelling in its transition into English.

Marcas and Jade are both wonderfully intelligent characters, and the villains of the story are particularly striking in their inventive cruelty and elitist agenda. Almost reminiscent of an “Indiana Jones” film with the invocation of WWII and its striking, chilling ending, “Shadow Ritual” will take readers on an adventurous ride.” —Killer Nashville.
