In Delphi, the mountain city deemed by the Greek gods to be the center of the Earth, a cult of neo-pagans re-create with painstaking authenticity ancient rituals to glorify the god Apollo and deliver oracles to seekers from around the world.
When antiquities are stolen from a museum in nearby Thebes, British archaeologist Sarah Weston and her American partner, Daniel Madigan, are drawn into a plot that goes beyond harmless role-playing: someone’s using the Delphian oracle as a smoke screen for an information exchange, with devastating consequences for the Western world.
Book Three in The Sarah Weston Chronicles.
PRAISE FOR THE ORACLE
"There’s a good, solid story here, but the real attraction is the author’s development of the relationship between Sarah and Daniel. ... [The] story arc involving the series’ two lead characters enriches each book and makes the series more than just a collection of independent thrillers." --David Pitt, Booklist
"A superbly crafted novel and a riveting read from beginning to end, 'The Oracle' (Book 3 of the Sarah Weston Chronicles) clearly denotes author D. J. Niko as an original and exceptionally skilled storyteller of the first order." --Midwest Book Review
"Niko has such as vast knowledge of the ancient world and I am perpetually amazed at just how much she knows! Her knowledge and research brings authenticity and wonder to the story." --The Lit Bitch blog
"Action, adventure, romance and historical mystery- who could ask for more? The Oracle is a great read." --James O. Born, author of Scent of Murder
"This highly original mystery has several layers and dimensions. ... The present-day scenes add extremely effective descriptions of action, including passages of danger, violence and cruelty, that build suspense, allow it to relax and then build it even higher." --Phil Jason, Ph.D., Florida Weekly
"It’s clear that D.J. Niko has discovered the key for writing clever archaeological mysteries that entertain and conscientiously inform at the same time." --Kate Atherton, For Winter Nights blog, UK
