A kidnapping, a time traveler, a prophecy unfulfilled, all coalesce to create a mystery unsolved.
Twenty-nine-year-old Mary is an ambitious and spirited American archeologist. Sent to investigate a newly discovered underground cemetery in Jerusalem, she makes an astonishing discovery. The bones in one of the burial niches are her own bones; aged and deteriorated over 2,000 years. When a time-traveling reader of the contents of the mythical Ark of the Covenant appears next to the bones, she vanishes from the 21st-century.
Thirty-year-old Moon, a Zuni American Indian, is tasked with tracking her into 1st-century Jerusalem where she was taken. Risking life and limb to find her, he’s swept up in battles over control of Herod’s Jewish temple and the Jews struggles against Rome’s tyranny.
Their journey carries them to Pontius Pilate’s court. When Moon’s intervention in a savage trial turns deadly, he’s sentenced to death as an example to all who might interfere.
To save him, Mary must betray a holy mission. It’s a soul-searching decision that pits her faith in ancient beliefs against the power of 21st-century science and knowledge.
But when the future intercedes, truth blurs and reality becomes an illusion.
Bloodgood Messiah is the first novel in the Bloodgood series.
