Two slayings—one in Rome and one in Jerusalem—rekindle an ancient rivalry between modern-day secret societies for knowledge lost at the fall of the Third Reich. Detective Antoine Marcas unwillingly teams up with the strong-willed Jade Zewinski to chase Neo-Nazi assassins across Europe. They must unravel an arcane Freemason mystery, sparked by information from newly revealed KGB files.

ABOUT THE TRANSLATOR
Shadow Ritual puts Giacometti and Ravenne into the top tier of writers that effectively pair entertainment and meaning into their work. The times call for more writing like this, and I look forward to reading more of this author team’s work.
A story offering suspense, mystery, thrills and a little romance, the myriad of twists and turns pull it all together for an educational roller coaster, quite a cerebral ride. An adventure in reading with flawless translation.
This is my kind of book. A fast-paced adventure with secrets and mysteries and of course an evil old sect. I enjoyed reading this book very much. It was especially nice to have the main characters non-Americans.
This thriller engages you from the first page, it’s really hard to put it down: it’s full of action, twists and unsolved mysteries, three spectacular places such as Rome, Jerusalem and Berlin where everything takes place.
It’s must-read for those who love thrillers.
If you’re looking for a fast paced intriguing mystery–this is the book for you.
I enjoyed this and I hope that you’ll give it a try.
“Shadow Ritual” by Giacometti and Ravenne was an intense, mystery-packed adventure.
I enjoyed learning about the secret societies such as Freemasons and Thule.
I found myself wanting see what was going to happen next. All in all a good book to keep you engrossed the entire time you are reading it.
There is a lot of information about Freemasonry in Shadow Ritual, so if the international society of Freemasons strikes you as mysterious or if the idea of an evil, global conspiracy dating from before the Nazis intrigues you, then Shadow Ritual might appeal to you.
