Meet the Author

Georgiann Baldino loves to explore the ways great events affect real people. Her published works span a number categories, including suspense, historical fiction and a travelogue. Her excuses for following diverse subjects are: people captivate her, and she follows their struggles regardless of genre. Admiration for Abraham Lincoln led to an interest in the War Between the States, which turned into several books and programs. Reviewers praise her writing as “wonderfully well-written and entertaining" and "heartwarming" and "riveting."

    exhilarating archeological thriller

    In Jordon American archeologist Linda Rhodes feels she is near a great discovery from antiquity, but, her expedition runs into problems. A camel spider chews off a chunk of a worker¿s face. This on top of a seatbelt incident has spooked the workforce into believing that evil travels with Linda. Only the help of her loyal followers Abu and Zuhair keep most of the men from leaving, but six do. Finally two men are poisoned as someone placed ipecac syrup in their food; the syrup came from the American students¿ first aid kits. In spite of someone sabotaging her efforts perhaps because Israeli Jewish Professor Gold is on the team, Linda stubbornly continues her work that pays off with a major find that appears to be from the Dead Sea Scrolls era. However, Muslim terrorists invade her dig and kill the government liaison Dr. Fawzi. Linda is not sure whether she found the gospel according to Judas or a fake. The terrorists direct her to translate the document or die; she knows that once she completes her translation, they will kill her anyway, but she needs to know what Judas said.--- This exhilarating archeological thriller occurs just before and after 9/11. Though the preliminary mischief seems childlike compared to the terrorists¿ activities and the world scene on 9/11 and afterward, the backdrop of growing distrust and disenchantment in the Middle East provides tension because readers know of the World Trade Center tragedy and the suicide bombings in Israel (and now Iraq). The contents of the Judas ¿translation¿ augments a fantastic archeological tale caught in the global war on terrorism.--- Harriet Klausner
