Parchments of Fire
About The Book
Near the island of Antikythera, off the southern coast of Greece, sponge divers discover a 2,000-year-old Roman shipwreck that harbors secrets potentially catastrophic to the public image of Greece. The government of Greece and two criminal organizations will stop at nothing to seize the documents…the criminals to sell them, the government to destroy them. Visiting Harvard classics professor Tobias Romulus Finch becomes the unwilling guardian of the documents, his life now dependent upon finding a solution acceptable to both opposing forces.
John Chaplick, BA, MBA, CPA, CBA, lived in Greece for several years during his youth and attended school in downtown Athens. Parchments of Fire draws upon his experience and travels within that country, as well as his extensive research, and reflects his lasting respect for the Greeks’ passionate devotion to their homeland and their pride in its illustrious history. Each of John’s novels is structured to engage the reader in both the story and the geographic setting in which the action takes place. In Parchments of Fire, the locale becomes an integral component of the plot as it unfolds, and the reader is treated to a unique environmental experience.
