    A Great Read! Highly Recommended!

    For the fans of The Da Vinci Code this book is a MUST read! The Medusa Amulet will take you down thru the ages and into the Renaissance peroid where the Author gives you a fine appreciation of the art of that time peroid. Once I picked up this book I found it hard to put down! I just hope the Author writes another book of this kind. Plan on curling up with a good pillow and blanket for this one!

    an exciting fast-paced thriller

    In Chicago Dante scholar David Franco knows his beloved sister Sarah is dying from breast cancer. He would do anything even give up his soul like Marlowe's Dr. Faustus to save her life.

    Kathryn Van Owen is a contributor to the Newberry Library where David works. She asks him to search for a reflecting glass created by the renowned Renaissance artist Benvenuto Cellini. The mirror is said to contain an image of Medusa. If he succeeds, he will be promoted; but more important is the million dollar reward that he can use to pay for Sarah's treatment. He follows clues that lead from Florence and Paris. Tour guide scholar Olivia Levi assists him on his quest while assassins try to prevent him from achieving his mission.

    The Medusa Amulet is an exciting fast-paced thriller in which the scholar faces death seemingly on every other page, which appears over the top of the Willis Tower (unless he is the cook in Steven Seagal's Under Siege). Although the romantic subplot feels more like a forced requirement, a desperate David risks his life to gain the mirror to save Sarah; fans will enjoy joining him on his action-packed misadventures.

    One that is truly hard to put down...

    Never having read a book by Robert Masello, I must say I will correct that now. Great and fast paced reading. Such an unusual plot...I did figure it out, but such fun to read!
    A truly great buy and read!
