Jack has always ascribed his success in archaeology to his father's advice. "History whispers, Monterey. All you have to do is listen." His father always called him Monterey as a joke. Jack never found the nickname to be as funny as his father did. For years, Jack wandered the globe in search of forgotten treasures, but the time eventually came when his life of adventure took a tragic turn. Jack's father had been murdered and an unrecognizable sigil had been carved into his forehead. Jack was devastated. He had no idea who would do this or why. But he intended to find answers. History whispers and Monterey Jack listens.
