The Masada Scroll by John Macurdy

VERO BEACH, Fla. - May 26, 2023 - PRLog -- Israel's Ancient Masada Poses a Modern Mystery

Archaeologist Finds Explosive New Discovery at Historic Site in Thrilling Novel

From the pages of history . . . High on a flat plateau overlooking the Dead Sea, Masada is one of the greatest archaeological sites in Israel. Built in the year 30 BCE by King Herod, Masada was conquered by a group of Jewish zealots who defended the site against Roman invaders. Rather than surrender, the Jews committed mass suicide in the year 73. Their deaths inspired a story of courage and martyrdom, and left behind parts of 15 biblical and apocryphal scrolls found in later Masada excavations.

John Macurdy's stunning novel The Masada Scroll mixes history, exotic locations, obscure religion, ancient texts, and a rip-roaring modern action-adventure story.

When former CIA assassin Nick Strahan offers to help an old friend in trouble, archaeologist Dr. Jones, Strahan must evade danger or be assassinated himself. A shadow network of unlikely saviors helps him each step along the way.

Strahan can only guess at the explosive nature of Dr. Jones' find, and will do everything in his power to make sure that discovery comes to light.

"History buffs and others who enjoy poking around historical sites will love this exciting novel by John Macurdy. It reaches out to the archaeologist in all of us," said Lynn Eddy, VP of Acquisitions, Strategic Book Publishing.
