Elixir of Life: A Jonathan Munro Adventure
Michael J. Scott
It begins with the abduction of a Holocaust survivor from a New York City mission, but soon escalates as Dr. Jon Munro's colleague, Dr. Harry Bryce, an expert in the Middle Ages, is also kidnapped. Jon soon finds himself teamed up with an artifact thief—his ex-fiancée, Isabel Kaufman—and her new partner in crime, Irish mercenary Sean MacNeil. Together they work to rescue Harry from an ancient order of alchemists bent on finding The Elixir of Life, a substance thought to cure disease and prolong life indefinitely.
Soon the unlikely trio find themselves wondering if they are chasing a myth…or is the key to eternal life truly to be found here on Earth?
From medieval cathedrals to ancient Christian burial sites, pursued by ruthless men who will stop at nothing to possess the prize, Jon must weave back together the diverse threads of Middle Age myths and secret clues to reveal the startling tapestry of truth behind the centuries’ old legends. Will Jon and his cohorts solve the mystery in time to find Harry, or will they all be sacrificed to the ambitions of men who would live forever?
