The Artemas Link

Bennett Cole immerses readers in a compelling treasure hunt with this romantic suspense. Mark Mercer is a refreshing leading man who happens to be a pastor. He is not only extremely likable he is also easy to relate to, he's just your average, intelligent, young man wanting to do his job to his best abilities. When he uncovers a possible missing artifact I completely understood how compelled he was to track it down. Priscilla Krikorian is a perfect match for him intellectually and spiritually. I thoroughly enjoyed the flashback historical segments of this story and they were so seamlessly woven into the story adding a depth while not diminishing the adventure. I appreciated the fact that while this had a religious theme it wasn't overly preachy and that I got to visit so many locations. If you enjoy a solid suspense then this one is an excellent choice.

When some unexpected time off leads Pastor Mark Mercer to a possible theological treasure he finds himself far from the small town congregation he was expecting and halfway around the world working with Priscilla Krikorian, a beautiful American archeologist. When Pris is kidnapped Mark plans to rescue her and return to the US with the treasure.
