Book Details

When renowned art connoisseur Alec Vanderbilt died, he left behind a centuries-old Bible that is a cherished family heirloom, a valuable collectors’ piece, and a possible treasure trove of CIA intel from Alec’s time with “the Company.” So P.I. Jackson Douglas knows reclaiming it for Alec’s daughter Abby (who claims to be its rightful owner) won’t be easy. But should it really be this hard?

Complicating matters are a host of government agencies, fake federal agents, spies, ex-girlfriends, and Alec’s son—each of whom wants the Bible for various reasons. However, nobody causes Jackson and Abby as much trouble as the mystery woman who joins the hunt with them—and against them—and then back with them—then back against them . . .

Pursuit of the Bible takes them from an opulent downtown L.A. hotel to an art gala on Santa Catalina Island, and from a game of cat-and-mouse aboard Amtrak’s Coast Starlight to a snow-covered mountain hideaway—with plenty of mayhem in between. If Jackson is ultimately to procure the Bible for Abby, he’ll need to stay one step ahead of the entire gang—not to mention stay alive long enough to figure out how to pull it off.

The Book of Levi

by

The world has changed since I started out. I can’t even remember how long it’s been, or sometimes, what it was like before I did. Or before It happened. All I know is what I see around me all the time, everywhere, constantly. The Noise.
