Epiphany by Glenn Sartori.
In medieval Russia, a battlefield historian is commissioned to transport treasures from invasion-torn south to a haven in the north. Centuries later, four events occur simultaneously.
Grace Sawyer, on her summer sabbatical at the Rosanov Art Institute in Yaroslavl, stumbles upon a black stone from a medieval Russian treasure. Richard Simon, an art historian in New York, is solicited by a friend in the CIA to journey to Yaroslavl on a cryptic quest.
In Kiev, the brother of the president of the Ukraine is assassinated, and a group of men plan to violently end the Epiphany—the historic meeting between the Pope and the Patriarch of Russia.
Within a week, these events will mesh in a violent climax that echoes in the halls of the Rosanov Art Institute.
Book Review from Amazon Customer: 5.0 out of 5 Stars ….and Patriarch together for the first time since the Great Schism of 1054. Prophetic in bringing the Pope and Patriarch together for the first time since the Great Schism of 1054. A good plot that kept me reading one more chapter before putting it down. Characters come across as real. Having grandparents who came from Russia and Kiev I enjoyed the challenge of the culture.
