ARC Arrival: The Pravda Messenger by Robert Cornuke

I was unable to find a cover picture of this book.

The Pravda Messenger by Robert Cornuke with Alton Gansky

Publisher: Howard Books

I received this book for a First Wild Card Tour in September.

About the book: In this riveting spiritual thriller, a follow-up to The Bell Messenger, a teenaged girl has the power to detect when someone speaks a lie -- a special gift that plunges her into a plot of international intrigue and suspense.

Tanya Novack and her father Yuri, a recent widower, visit a monastery near Leningrad in Soviet-era Russian. There a priest presents her with a gold snuff box from the stone coffin of a monk named Feodor Kuzmich, suspected to have actually been Czar Alexander. KGB officers capture her father, sending him to a Siberian gulag. Tanya escapes and flees to America.

Years later, on a goat farm in the mountains of Colorado, Tanya is presented with an antique Bible -- the same Bible that changed the lives of so many in The Bell Messenger. Her intuitive powers are put on high alert when she notices that the Bible contains the hand-written name Feodor Kuzmich, sending her to an expert on Russian history and politics in Washington, D.C. to learn more about the mysterious monk - and the equally mysterious Bible. Her unique inheritances -- her intuitive gifts, the historical Bible, and the gold snuff box she hasn't seen since her father was captured -- catapult her across the glove, with unscrupulous people who want only to profit from her gifts close behind. Will Tanya unravel the mystery of her past before she's captured and exploited -- even killed?

Full of ancient mysteries and that same powerful Bible from The Bell Messenger, The Pravda Messenger is an exciting collaboration between a real-life archaeologist and a bestselling suspense novelist that is sure to leave readers breathless. . .and wanting more. (from the back cover)
