The Treasure of St. Paul Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Treasure of St. Paul

Kira Ellison signs up for an archeological excavation. Her travels take her first to England to the site of Canterbury Castle, the fabled setting for King Arthur and Camelot, but it isn't until he's ready to leave that excavation that her story begins. Maeve Ryan is on loan to the excavation in England from another site in Italy near Pompeii. The legend she conveys to Kira over a glass of wine sparks Kira's imagination - is it possible that St. Paul carried the Holy Grail to Italy where it was buried by the volcano thousands of years ago? The history fits and for a woman who is looking for something more from her life, it provides ample motivation for Kira to extend her quest.

Prior to her arrival, a dream haunts Kira's sleep. The premonition forewarns her of the dangers that lay in wait, but it doesn't prepare her for Dominic Fioretti. When she comes face to face with the "man of her dreams," the dangers become all too real, both physically and emotionally. Will she find the legendary grail? Or will she go back home to lead the life that seems destined for her?

There is a murderer in Dominic Fioretti's home. He stands by helplessly when the excavation they host buries his father in a rush of debris. When he meets Kira Ellison, he has the uncanny feeling that she is the "sun" his father intimated would enter his life. Is she truly the one who will find the grail? And how does she know about his father's untimely death? Dominic struggles with his attraction to her, his jealousy of his brother while still trying to unmask a murderer before he strikes again.
