Thriller Arcane

Baden-Powell's Beads: Aksum is the third book in this series, following the adventures of Agent Patrick Dartson, Agent Adnan Fazeph, and nurse Pam Blanchard back to London and ultimately to the ancient country of Ethiopia, where they struggle to solve the mystery of the Zulu beads. Pam fiancé, Dr. David Freeman, was given one of these beads in Book I by a dying patient. They were nearly killed by a band of Zulus wanting it back. In Book II, Dr. Freeman is killed as the Arab world, through Scotland Yard and the Rastafarians, joins in the pursuit of the beads for reasons yet unknown. Cheri Hassan, the beautiful assassin working for a double agent in the Yard, pursues the beads only for the money others are willing to pay.

In this book, Rastafarian henchman, Ras Marcus, teams up with Cheri to deliver three of the original 24 beads to the pretender to the Ethiopian throne, Lij Mered, who has organized a terrorist training camp in Aksum near the church housing the Ark of the Covenant. Lij Mered's nefarious designs on world order hinge on reuniting the beads with the Ark. Adnan, using his ability to blend into the Arab world must infiltrate this camp at great personal risk, as Patrick and Pam provide him with the cover he needs to survive. As the story unfolds and our heroes are drawn deeper into the mystery, it becomes increasing clear that perhaps they are all characters in a much bigger plot, one dating back to the beginning of recorded history.

Re: Baden-Powell's Beads: Aksum

Sounds like a good mystery book. I haven't read your books yet, but after about it want to put on my read first list.

It looks like I have some catching up to do before I can get to your latest book!! I'll probably be able to relate to your female character Cheri, but I'd just have to change the sex. Let's just call it personal reasons, but I can definately relate. ;-) It sounds like a great read, with plenty of action, and a real page-turner, which is something I've been looking for lately. Congratulations on your latest book!!

them out.

I am always looking for new authors that my husband will like. He hasn't read any of your books that I know of but I will add your name to his list of authors to check when we go shopping again.

I love books that help me learn about other cultures. Even if the characters and storyline are fictional, writers always include lots of interesting true facts for me to learn. :)
Donna Holmberg 10:16pm February 3, 2014)

Cheri Hassan character sounds so interesting. I'm sold on her character to read this series.
Kai Wong 12:04pm February 4, 2014)

I love learning about other cultures. Sounds like a great book. Thanks for a chance to win.
Linda Hall 12:13pm February 4, 2014)

I have never heard of the Zulu beads until I came across the third installment of your book. Since it is based on a true story, I find it very intriging, and cannot wait to start reading it, and so I have alot of reading to do. Thank you for bringing this story to light. And thank you for giving us a chance to win the 3rd book of Baden-Powell's Beads.

I've just found a new series to dive into thank you.
Mary Preston 5:21am February 4, 2014)

Sounds like a fascinating series. Look forward to reading it.
Jean Patton 10:21am February 4, 2014)

This sounds like a great series. I'm looking forward to seeing what I think of Cheri for myself.
Pam Howell 11:02am February 4, 2014)

These books sound facinating! I live in Tucson, and we are right now having our Bead Shows. I know I would love your books! I am a total beader.
Sandy Fielder 11:55am February 4, 2014)

It looks like a lot of experience went into compiling this
book in a series. I love reading mysteries where there are
many sneaky things thrown in to get you off track. I like to
work the many options and see what's right when it comes down
to the wire.
