In Vienna a clandestine robbery inside a locked library leads to a brutal murder. A 1,500-year-old sculpture holds the Metropolitan Museum of Art hostage.
A young woman’s fatal accident gives two lovers a chance to meet again, against all odds. A centuries-old massacre in Persia has modern-day repercussions in Iran. In New York City a Matisse masterpiece surfaces after twenty years, mutilated and vandalized.
A modern-day reincarnationist is hell-bent on finding tools to aid in past life regressions no matter what the cost—in dollars or lives.
Everything rests on the shoulders of Lucian Glass, special agent with the FBI’s Art Crime Team, who himself is suffering from the aftermath of a brutal attack, impossible nightmares and his own crisis of faith.
If reincarnation is real, how can he live with who he was in his past life? If it’s not, then how can he live with who he has become in the present?

My Thoughts:
This is the third book in the Reincarnationist series and I haven’t read the others.  The beginning of the story was a little hard for me to follow as there were so many characters to get to know.  It was hard to follow them all as it switched to different story lines and characters.  But as the story went on I got pulled in and found myself enjoying the story and watching the twists and turns, as there were many!  
The story line itself and the concept of reincarnation is quite interesting and that aspect definitely had my attention.  I also loved how much the Metropolitan Museum of Art was in the story.
This book delivered in many different ways.  It felt like several stories in one and as one piece would start to piece together it would jump to another and I couldn’t help but keep reading just to find out what would happen next.  

I give this one 4/5 moons.
