The Sterling Forest, A Thriller by John Fenzel

Daniel “Danno” Tory is America’s newest Congressman, and the tabloids’ “Most Eligible Bachelor.”  But when a beloved uncle passes away, Danno discovers a secret that challenges everything he thought he knew about his family’s past—a secret that threatens his political future, and his life.

In a personal quest to learn the truth, Danno embarks on a journey that takes him from his hometown of Chicago to medieval castles of Switzerland, through Russia’s ancient monasteries, to a vast, hidden Baltic treasure that the Kremlin has long been seeking and will stop at nothing to find.

Danno’s journey quickly becomes a deadly race against time and political forces much larger than him. As assassination teams relentlessly pursue him, Danno uncovers a plot that could suddenly shift the balance of power in Europe to an unthinkable war that only he can stop, hurtling him toward a revelation that is all but impossible for him to conceive.

Riveting, incendiary, and unforgettable, The Sterling Forest is an international thriller with a story that has been torn from today’s headlines…while transcending the known boundaries of faith, family and friendship.
