An ancient secret...
Evidence of a powerful substance lost nearly 3000 years ago...
Most believe it's a myth, but people are dying because some do not...
The Samson Effect has not actually been published yet, and I have read just the first three chapters. The action starts right from the very first page. I can't wait to read the whole book. It is set in the present and centers around characters who are searching for the ancient secret to Samson's strength.
Dr. Michael Sieff, an Israeli Biblical linguist, and Dr. Thomas Hamilton, an American Biblical archeologist, have spent over a year searching the archaeological record for a secret that leads them to the divided city of Hebron; divided between the Jews and the Palestinians. Somewhere in this ancient city lies the truth behind one of the greatest finds of antiquity: the lost power of the Samson Effect.
Clive Cussler (who writes the NUMA and Dirk Pitt novels) read the manuscript and he said The Samson Effect is a “first class thriller brimming with intrigue and adventure.”
This new author, Tony Eldridge, looks like he could be bringing Indiana Jones back to life.
