“An enthralling read. Takes the spy/action thriller genre to new levels by the inventive addition of mysticism and humanitarian angles. Shows a great depth of understanding and compassion for the men and woman who risk their lives for our country without being sappy or narrow minded. Full of surprises and twists. Great work from a wonderful new author.”
— Edward “Ed C.,” Wesley Chapel, FL United States 

“Put down that “ho-hum” book you’re reading right now and get your hands on a copy of this book. You won’t put it down! Am always looking for new writers that are exciting, and this is surely one of them. Full of intrigue, spies and even a little romance. The characters come alive quickly and the plot will keep you reading well past your bedtime. Don’t be the last person you know to read this book. A new book by Lumbert is on the way and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!”

“At last-a writer who understands true readers! Get rid of those video games, throw out the carbon copy “romance/murder” and read this page turner! If you do not understand the title, you need to go to school as this is a wonderful delight for the mind, as well as a few other parts of the body. One minute you will be on the edge of your seat, the next will leave you with a smile. This is the perfect book for true readers, and don’t worry romance is alive and well!”

The Alchemist Conspiracy— Holy Grail Batman!  The Alchemist Conspiracy is the first book in a series centered around the life of Jack Trance and the wide world of conspiracy and intrigue. Jack is a man of honor who is constantly torn between duty, family, and the choices we have to make when we step outside the microcosm of our world and into the macrocosm of politics, spirituality, the desire for power above all else, and the need to restore balance.

Jay has written a fast paced book that weaves stories, lore, and the search for eternal life into one powerful book.
As with all Jay’s books it is well worth reading, and reading again. His books make you thing about what you would do in the same situation; and the answers are never easy. Enjoy and expect to have trouble putting it down.
