The Antiquities Dealer_6x9_paperback_FRONT.jpg

Pursued across continents by Christian, Jewish and Muslim extremists, all seeking a priceless relic, antiquities dealer David Greenberg must decipher the sole clue to its whereabouts. Is humankind’s future at stake? Who is behind the plot — and why?

When Miriam Solomon, the love of David Greenberg’s life, phones him at his antiquities gallery in St. Louis, the black hole at the center of his heart shudders. Twenty years earlier, Miriam had inexplicably run off to Israel with his best friend, Solly, a brilliant but nerdy young scientist. Now she tells David that Solly has committed suicide and she needs his aid on a secret research project Solly left unfinished: to acquire the one remaining nail from the crucifixion of Jesus. Is she telling the truth? And why does that nail have such significance?

…Filled with religious fanaticism, deception, manipulation, blackmail, coercion, a puzzle which must be solved to find the missing artifact, and so much more, THE ANTIQUITIES DEALER is equal in intensity and depth to any Dan Brown novel.

The Antiquities Dealer by Ed Protzel is an interestingly deep story of religion, evolution, and sci-fi...I enjoyed this story; it was very detailed, with excellent characters that will resonate with most of us. If you enjoy Dan Brown’s books, then I guarantee you will enjoy this.
