In the world of art and artifacts, everyone knows how priceless theses items can be. What kind of a person would want to steal not just one item, but numerous items, located in numerous place, at the same time! A mastermind? A criminal, obviously, but what would you do with them since you cannot resell them?The Stolen Chalice takes you into the world of the rich, the middle class doing their jobs, and the hard working lower class. But who is in on the theft? This type of heist needs so many involved in so many levels.Travel the globe with archaeologist, John Sinclair, and an assorted cast of characters. Written in great detail, you can imagine yourself there with them.While the story is easy to follow and the chapters switch from one character/location to another, somewhere along the line, the theft of the chalice becomes a minimal point, while the other items take the forefront. Well written and a definite page turner, I would recommend it for everyone looking for travel, adventure and some thrills.

This review is a portion of the original posted at LuxuryReading.com:I had an incredibly hard time reading this novel. Initially, I was expecting a mystery, and while that is an aspect, the characters and their emotions towards the situation and each other take center stage. This drives the novel to feel more like romantic fiction that is moved forward by a series of action sequences. There are, however, no satisfyingly intimate moments to solidify its genre.The large amount of characters that are introduced throughout the novel (at least six main characters and a slew of minor characters) distracts from the potential of the book. Pilgrim constructs a large group characters, all with special knowledge about the missing artifact and/or biological terrorism, but they are all more concerned with the emotional aspects of their relationships.
