A homeless woman is murdered in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, but she keeps her secret and cuts the killer. A man has a heart attack, but passes on a strange secret to his son just before he dies. A priest is murdered in a church for a secret he will never tell. His brother barely escapes a hit squad, but they try to kill him again. All for an old 8 mm film. All secrets lead back to Siberia. Zoe, a lawyer for female domestic issues receives an intriguing and mysterious letter from a woman she does not know. What is on this film and what is the greater secret that caused it to be made in the first place? Who is the Keeper and what is the Altar of Bones? Zoe and Ry must find out as both their families are connected. Zoe will learn of a heritage and destiny that has remained hidden all her life. The truth will change the course of her life.

I believe the author of this book to be a woman. Either one that has always written in a different genre like Penelope Williamson or perhaps even the wife of an author. Perhaps Baldacci's wife.

Since making this review I have come to suspect James Rollins as the author. But apparently Philip Carter uses the same web designer as Lee Child.
