The Medusa Amulet
Mass Market Paperbound - English

In this spine-tingling thriller, the quest to recover a legendary artifact--and plumb its secrets--depends upon one man: David Franco, a brilliant but skeptical young scholar at Chicago's world-renowned Newberry Library. What begins as a simple investigation quickly spirals into a twisting, turning tale of suspense and intrigue. ..."A wonderful treat . . . Masello is] a master entertainer unafraid to pull out all the stops."--Chicago Tribune

Benvenuto Cellini, master artisan of Renaissance Italy, once crafted a beautiful amulet prized for its unimaginable power--and untold menace. Now the quest to recover this legendary artifact depends upon one man: David Franco, a brilliant but skeptical young scholar at Chicago's world-renowned Newberry Library. What begins as a simple investigation spirals into a tale of dangerous intrigue, as Franco races from the ch teaux of France to the palazzos of Rome in a desperate search for the ultimate treasure--and an answer to a riddle that has puzzled mankind since the beginning of time. Aided by a beautiful young Florentine harboring dark secrets, pursued by deadly assassins, and battling demons of his own, Franco must ultimately confront an evil greater than anything conjured in his worst nightmares.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Robert Masello's The Romanov Cross.
