More About the Author
When she head to veterinary school those many years ago she had no idea decades later she would be writing controversial historical thrillers, gut wrenching mysteries and roller coaster-style action/adventure tales!
Born in San Francisco and raised in the beautiful Napa Valley, Carolyn always had an overactive imagination. As a child you could usually find her dragging the neighborhood children out to the haunted barn to make her Nancy Drew-style audio tapes. Oh and did she mention, there was an entire life-sized recreation of the nativity scene in the rafters? Yeah, that wasn't just a little creepy.
Which of course was great practice for writing such blockbusters as Plain Jane: A Patterson-style thriller with a dash of Hannibal and 30 Pieces of Silver: An Extremely Controversial Historical Thriller.
Carolyn is honored to have a seven book contract with Amazon's mystery and thriller imprint, Thomas & Mercer along with being one of the eight books during the inaugural launch of Amazon's new Serial program (9th Circle).
With over 250,000 books sold, Carolyn now lives on a beautiful lake in the Pacific Northwest where the fog rolls in over the water, snuffing out all signs of life around her. Yep, she still loves the creepy!

That being said, I did enjoy the story and kept reading to the very end.
The biggest complaint I have with the books is the fact that not a page went by that I did not have to stop reading and mentally edit the sentence structure in order for the story to make sense to me. There were occasional spelling errors, though they were few and far between. But having a character with a doctorate say, "All's we have to do is . . ." is not only distracting, but laughable. "All's?" Seriously? And having all the characters use that colloquialism (and others) shows some difficulty in maintaining characters' distinct personalities, education and life experience through their dialogue. Sometimes any character can be visualized as saying any portion of the conversations. Lastly, I understand the concept of keeping sentences short to move the story along faster, but they at least need to be sentences for the most part. The occasional phrase standing alone can be a great narrative tool, but having complete sentences chopped up into short phrases is distracting and irritating to the reader. At least it was to me.
As a couple of examples, she (the author) describes the bad guys using percussive grenades, but she also includes a large heat blast from these that starts several trees on fire--she added incendiary features to percussive, but okay whatever. She describes a jeep revving an engine and then flying up and over the top of a Mayan step pyramid, and then they all drive off in the jeep, escaping the bad guys. Seriously? The jeep isn't going to get to the top, much less fly over the top, and far much less able to still drive away afterwards. It was extremely painful reading a section about them scaling an 8 foot wall. They could probably nearly reach the top with their hands while just standing on the ground, but she describes this long drawn out, difficult process for these men to scale the wall. After a lot of effort and work, one had made it up four feet and had four feet still to go, and took forever to do it. How?!? Another one was having difficulty climbing, so another guy, after having climbed up a ways moved over directly beneath the struggling one to help him climb higher. WHAT? She wrote as if they were scaling a 50 foot wall rather than an 8 foot wall. So much of what is described skews so far from reality that it is very difficult to read and/or take seriously. Maybe this writing should be in the humor category. As to the controversial stuff other reviewers have mentioned, I haven't gotten that far into the series and I don't think I will--I'm off to read something else now.

Well I only read the first one...30 Pieces of silver. Basically in a nutshell its the search for the bones of Jesus Christ. It gets a little crazy along the way with fast cars and RPG's and exploding everything but its a fun read. If your religiously sensitive I would avoid it.
