About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
It looked as though stockbroker and amateur archaeologist Brian Sadler had hit the jackpot when he joined Warren Taylor & Currant, Dallas' hottest investment brokerage firm. Then the FBI arrived to investigate the company's ties to the Mob, and Brian had to find a way out. In his last deal at the firm, he raised millions of dollars for Bijan Rarities, a New York dealer in antiquities, then joined the gallery himself.
Bijan Rarities' upcoming auction of the sarcophagus of Inkharaton, a pharaoh whose tomb was discovered in 2005, was making headlines worldwide. This amazing tomb was the first intact burial site ever found in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, and held a unique surprise for those who unearthed it.
The auction was televised worldwide and catapulted the gallery to new heights as Bijan's name became a household word in the rarities field.
In a bizarre turn of events, Brian finds himself owning the gallery and searching for a scroll, written by a young boy, that would put Brian on the map as one of the world's top dealers in antiquities. Knowing he has to raise millions of dollars to buy the artifacts, he finds a solution in a plan outlined by mob boss John Spedino.
If you deal with the Mafia, things have to go exactly right. When events begin to unravel, Brian Sadler could lose his gallery . . . and his life.
Jetting from Dallas to New York and London, Egypt's Valley of the Kings and the French Riviera, this fast moving archaeological adventure will keep you turning pages to learn the outcome of the world's most important document, The Bethlehem Scroll.
