Book Description

The Ghent Altarpiece is the most violated work of art in the world. Thirteen times it has been vandalized, dismantled, or stolen. Why? What secrets does it hold?

Enter UNESCO investigator, Nicholas Lee, who works for the United Nations’ Cultural Liaison and Investigative Office (CLIO). Nick’s job is to protect the world’s cultural artifacts—anything and everything from countless lesser-known objects to national treasures.

When Nick travels to Belgium for a visit with a woman from his past, he unwittingly stumbles on the trail of a legendary panel from the Ghent Altarpiece, stolen in 1934 under cover of night and never seen since. Soon Nick is plunged into a bitter conflict, one that has been simmering for nearly two thousand years. On one side is the Maidens of Saint-Michael, les Vautours—the Vultures—a secret order of nuns and the guardians of a great truth. Pitted against them is the Vatican, which has wanted for centuries to both find and possess what the nuns guard. Because of Nick the maidens have finally been exposed, their secret placed in dire jeopardy—a vulnerability that the Vatican swiftly moves to exploit utilizing an ambitious cardinal and a corrupt archbishop, both with agendas of their own.

From the tranquil canals of Ghent, to the towering bastions of Carcassonne, and finally into an ancient abbey high in the French Pyrenees, Nick Lee must confront a modern-day religious crusade intent on eliminating a shocking truth from humanity’s past. Success or failure—life and death—all turn on the Omega Factor.

John Reviews:

We have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Steve Berry since 2003, when he broke onto the scene with the debut of THE AMBER ROOM.

THE OMEGA FACTOR is Berry's fifth stand-alone novel that does not feature Cotton Malone.

We are introduced to a new lead character. Enter UNESCO investigator, Nicholas Lee, who works for the United Nations’ Cultural Liaison and Investigative Office. His job is to protect the world's cultural artifacts.

Lee travels to Belgium, where he meets up with his former fiancée, who is now a Roman Catholic nun, Sister Kelsey Deal. Deal is an art restorer who has discovered something amazing about the piece she is working on, The Ghent Altarpiece. Not long after Nick's arriving, an arsonist destroys the altarpiece and a woman lies dead. Nick follows the dead woman's companion to a mysterious abbey and the story is off and running.

Once again Steve Berry has produced a story that is rich is historical fact - things and places. He always takes the time to separate fact from fiction in the back of his books, but it never ceases to amaze me how much is indeed factual.

The writing is descriptive and rich. The characters are inquisitive, driven, and fearless. And the plot is an intricate tale that will have you contemplating the significance and importance of historical artifacts, Christian history, the dealings and scandals of the Catholic Church over the years, and the possible location of the final resting place of the Virgin Mary and the ashes of Joan of Arc. Another must read title!
