Pompeii's Ghosts (James Acton Thrillers, #9) by J. Robert Kennedy

*** FROM USA TODAY & MILLION COPY BESTSELLING AUTHOR J. ROBERT KENNEDY ***

Pompeii is about to claim its final victims—two thousand years later!

Two thousand years ago, Roman Emperor Vespasian tries to preserve an empire by hiding a massive treasure in the quiet town of Pompeii should someone challenge his throne. Unbeknownst to him, nature is about to unleash its wrath upon the Empire, during which the best and worst of Rome's citizens will be revealed during a time when duty and honor were more than words, they were ideals worth dying for.

Archaeology Professor James Acton has just arrived in Egypt to visit his fiancée at her dig site, when a United Nations helicopter arrives carrying representatives with an urgent demand that they come to Eritrea to authenticate an odd find that threatens to start a war—an ancient Roman vessel with over one billion dollars of gold in its hold.

It is a massive amount of wealth found in the world's poorest region, and everyone wants it. Nobody can be trusted, not even closest friends or even family. Greed, lust, and heroism are the orders of the day, as the citizens of Pompeii try to survive nature's fury, and James Acton tries to survive man's greed while risking his life to protect those around him.

USA Today and million copy bestselling author J. Robert Kennedy delivers the historical drama and modern day action in Pompeii's Ghosts his fans have come to expect. Pompeii's Ghosts opens with a shocker that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the thrilling conclusion in a story torn from today's headlines. If you enjoy fast-paced adventures in the style of Dan Brown, Clive Cussler, and James Rollins, then you'll love this adrenaline-fueled tale of archaeological intrigue.

Thank you Barnes and Noble for Free Book Fridays -- Protocol Book #1-- and introducing me to this series of books and the awesome author. I enjoyed the thrill of the adventures the professors encounter. I find once I start reading I don’t want to stop. I like that the story links a historical item of reference that is relevant to today’s headlines. I look forward to completing this series and reading more from this author.
