One Day In Budapest by J.F. Penn
Budapest, Hungary. When a priest is murdered at the Basilica of St Stephen and the Holy Right relic is stolen, the ultra-nationalist Eröszak party calls for retribution and anti-Semitic violence erupts in the city.
Dr Morgan Sierra, psychologist and ARKANE agent, finds herself trapped inside the synagogue with Zoltan Fischer, a Hungarian Jewish security advisor. As the terrorism escalates, Morgan and Zoltan must race against time to find the Holy Right and expose the conspiracy, before blood is spilled again on the streets of Budapest.
One Day In Budapest is a chilling view of a possible future as Eastern Europe embraces right-wing nationalism. A conspiracy thriller for fans of Daniel Silva, where religion and politics intersect.
“This evocative and atmospheric thriller pulls you into the dangerous world of modern day Budapest, where the secrets of the past have exploded into the present. The pulse-pounding suspense never lets up–from the first page till the last. Clear an afternoon for this novella, because you won’t be able to put it down once you’ve started!” – Rebecca Cantrell, New York Times bestselling author of The Blood Gospel
“J.F. Penn does a great job of painting her fictional tale on a canvas of truth … a close and cutting look at the horrendous evils that occurred during World War II and the communist era and deftly demonstrates how those same seeds are beginning to flower again. This novella brings adventure with a deeper awareness.” — Compulsion Reads Endorsed Books Review
The novella features Dr Morgan Sierra from the ARKANE thrillers, but is stand-alone and can be read separately from the ARKANE series.
