Synopsis

The Lost Relic by Scott Mariani

Some secrets should stay buried! A web of deceit and Ben Hope is caught up in the mayhem. Whilst visiting a former SAS comrade in Italy, a distracted Ben nearly runs over a young boy and unwittingly walks into his deadliest mission yet. Ben's involvement with the boy's family runs deeper as he witnesses their brutal murder at a gallery robbery. A seemingly worthless Goya sketch was the principal target in the bloodbath heist. Now it's up to Ben to find out the truth behind the elusive painting. Wrongly accused of murder and forced to go on the run, he must get to the heart of the conspiracy while he still has the chance...
