Share Article

Georgiann BaldinoÂ?s new novel places an American archeologist on a collision course with Muslim terrorists. Linda Rhodes discovers a manuscript that appears to be from the same period as the Dead Sea Scrolls, but before she can authenticate the relics, Muslim terrorists take control of the archaeology site and murder a Jordanian official. The action is set against the backdrop of growing distrust in the Middle East just before the 9-11 attacks.

The ancient scroll, written by Judas Iscariot, ignites modern-day hatreds. Radicals kidnap Linda and offer her a choice — to translate the scroll or suffer in solitary confinement. As long as she works to decipher the untold story of history's most infamous traitor, they keep her alive. But with each verse she translates, she knows the threat of execution is coming closer. The battle goes beyond possession of the scroll when moderate Muslims take a stand against terrorists. Ultimately rural Muslim villagers are forced to decide which side will prevail.
