You can download the next installment of my thriller in the making here:
This is where the hero is finally introduced.
To recap - in case you missed the previous parts:
In the caves around Qumran in the Israeli occupied territory, a priest and his young charge have been forced to leave their home following an assault on their town by fearsome mercenaries. They took with them a box of unknown contents.
Next day, a Harvard professor of antiquities is killed by an assassin looking for the professor's files on the Essene Copper Scroll...
Chapter Two picks up the story at this point.
