The Holy Lance

The legend of the holy lance and its unimaginable mythical power in the hands of a shadowy cabal hoping to restore the Russian Empire to its former glory. Russia’s top military commanders are committed to an outrageously bold and massive strike. CIA agent Chet Brinker stumbles across their plan and has mere days to track down and crush the conspiracy. Jonathan Dyer’s latest novel brings tension and excitement to a conflict, centuries in the making, that could change the course of history.

"Another great book from Jonathan Dyer.

"With the current political uncertainty, this book has an eerie undertone that makes you think how just a few people in powerful positions could cause such devastating atrocities when in possession of deadly weapons.

"An updated modern day Cold War thriller superbly depicted that is gripping and thought-provokingly disturbing."
