THE AMBER CONSPIRACY follows famed antiquities hunter Jack Monroe as he searches for the truth behind the murder of renowned Amber Room expert Urie Roskopf. Jack soon begins to suspect that Roskopf's death is somehow connected to the missing eighth wonder of the world, The Amber Room, and it's his belief that the priceless treasure, created by the Prussian King Frederick I in 1701, has ties to a sinister secret society, the Illuminati.
If Jack's suspicion is correct, then there's little doubt that the Illuminati are responsible for Urie’s death, which leaves Jack and Urie's granddaughter, Kira Solomon, to solve the question of how to penetrate the most secretive society in the world.
Simultaneously, we go back in time to track the story of a sacred Christian relic, which we first discover being rescued by a band of warrior monks during the siege of Constantinople in 1204, then later as it comes in and out of the possession of the Knights Templars, the Freemasons, and the Nazis before eventually making its way to the Illuminati and the Amber Room.
Jack & Kira's persistence in locating the Amber Room and unraveling the mystery surrounding Roskopf's murder places them in the crosshairs, as their investigation threatens an audacious plan by the Illuminati to bring down their centuries-old archenemy.
PRAISE FOR THE AMBER CONSPIRACY
It's no surprise that veteran cinematographer/director Gil Cope's first novel feels like a movie. A mash-up of history, religion and fasten-your-seatbelt adventure, The Amber Conspiracy takes an old story and gives it a fresh twist. Fans of Dan Brown will want to get their next fix from this crackling international thriller.
Author of The Angry Buddhist and Shining City
If Robert Ludlum and Dan Brown shared a protégé, the author's name would be Gil Cope. With his first novel, The Amber Conspiracy, Mr. Cope has launched himself amongst his contemporaries and will no doubt be on best seller lists with this novel and many to come. This book is filled with action, adventure, scandal, romance, history, and mystery and is the perfect read for anyone who loves this genre. I should know - I've read it three times! I cannot wait to see the response The Amber Conspiracy receives, and I am delighted to be one of the first in Mr. Cope's fan base. I can only hope an Amber Conspiracy 2 is in the works!
A fan of Dan Brown? Carolyn McCray? A.G. Riddle? You're going to love Gil Cope's "The Amber Conspiracy". I had the privilege, and pleasure, of reading this adventure story featuring Jack Monroe before it was published. I could not put it down. Cope effortlessly combines history with an imaginative plot and believable characters. To say he is a master of twisting the plot is a vast understatement. I guarantee you will be fascinated, breathless and stunned. I also guarantee you will want more - more Jack Monroe and more Gil Cope!
