Dead Sea Conspiracy | Excerpt + Giveaway

JustRead Publicity Tours


In Book 2 of the Dead Sea Chronicles, archaeologist Nicole Berman is about to discover the key to unifying three major religions, if a dangerous and evil enemy doesn’t stop her first.

She is the first woman to be awarded a permit to lead a dig in Saudi Arabia and believes what she hopes to discover has the power to rewrite history. She assembles a team that will ultimately surprise – and in some cases – betray her. In a parallel storyline, readers are launched back to ancient Ur where young Abram is sent to learn from his forebears, who tell him firsthand stories of being on the ark during the Great Flood.

It wasn’t as if Terah had not seen violence, especially in the presence of King Nimrod. In fact, Terah himself had initiated enough that he should have been hardened to it. But something rocked him about the capriciousness of this callous murder. The farther they climbed the great tower, the more disgusted he became—with both the king and with himself.

When hoofbeats approached from below, he assumed it was the sculptor of the king’s image and prayed the man had thought to bring a fresh rendering of Nimrod looking the way he wished to appear. If he arrived with only more excuses, he might easily face the same fate as the hapless chair bearer. But the donkey that clopped into view bore not the sculptor, but the wife of the slain man. She dismounted and stood before the king, forcing his carriers to halt.

“I demand to know what happened! How does my husband, who served you faithfully—and with pride—for so many years, wind up dead at the base of the tower?”

“So my message reached you, dear woman?” the king said.

“Your message? No! Someone recognized my husband’s body! What was your message?”

“I dispatched a courier to get word to you of your loyal husband’s unfortunate demise. We were forced to the edge by a load of fresh brick and he lost his footing, poor soul.”

“Liar!” the woman screamed. “I saw his body! His shoulder and back had been ripped open!”

“He must have hit rocks on the way d—”

“The sides of the tower are smooth! He was clearly attacked by a swordsman and driven to—”

“Terah!” Nimrod said. “Did this woman call her king a liar?”

“She did.”

“Then why do you just stand there? Mete out justice! She must also die!”

Terah found himself willing to perish before he would execute this innocent woman. But before he could call out Nimrod for his blatant lie, the woman keened, “I’ll save you the trouble!” and leapt off the tower.
