Covenant A Novel (Hardcover)
|Author: Dean Crawford|
From the Publisher:
In the tradition of Michael Crichton and James Rollins comes a fast-paced debut thriller featuring a missing archeologist, a fundamentalist preacher, and a mysterious tomb.
When archaeologist Lucy Morgan uncovers a 7000-year-old tomb on a dig in a remote part of Israel, she realizes she has stumbled across something important—something that means history will have to be entirely re-written. And she isn’t the only one who is curious about these remains…they seem to be non-human. That’s before she disappears.
Pastor Robert Paterson, head of one of America’s biggest fundamentalist churches, has known of such discoveries for some time, but in his eyes these skeletons are not aliens but Angels. He is determined to see God’s Angels resurrected on Earth with the help of his team of scientists.
Former war correspondent Eddie Warner has seen much action in the line of fire. He had hoped to lead a more quiet existence, but when Lucy’s family asks him to help find her, he can’t say no. After all, he too has someone missing out there—someone he once loved and for whom he would give his life.
Fresh, original, and an old-fashioned page-turner, Covenant is an exciting new addition to the world of thrillers.
