A QUEST to discover the original language and symbols of humankind places Dr. Hope Taylor and her dedicated associates - a British archeologist, a biblical historian, and an ex-Legionnaire/NSA operative - in deadly danger. Secret societies, the Vatican, and rogue mercenaries pursue them to both suppress and unleash the power of ancient knowledge and biblical prophecy. THE ENIGMA of the Black Opal, the sub rosa plot to usher in The Second Coming, and the real power of The Ark of the Covenant are all revealed in this quest to solve mysteries unknown for centuries. Originating from the distant stars, hidden for centuries, and now scattered throughout the world - Sumer, Luxor, Roswell ...- etched on shimmering triangular Tablets, come oracles and compelling evidence of alien intervention. Hugh Fraser is a college English professor, trained Acupuncturist, and ex Top Secret International Courier Officer for the U.S. Army. His goal is to bring to the reader thought-provoking novels that enlighten, engage, and entertain. He lives in Reno, NV with his wife Louise and their three West Highland White Terriers.
