The Staff of Moses (Oliver Lucas Adventures) - Thriller

Oliver Lucas is a professional tomb robber, though he prefers to think of himself as an adventure photographer and gentleman relic hunter. It has been a decade since his previous career fell to pieces in the wake of a discovery that led him to abandon academia and begin scouring the world for clues to an ancient conspiracy.

Now a powerful man wants Oliver to track down a relic from the pages of history: the staff Moses used to call down plagues, part the sea, and lead the Hebrews out of Egypt. Unfortunately, the scroll that points the way to this relic is in hands of a band of renegade military contractors, and the only connection Oliver has to them is through a disgraced Egyptian spymaster.

It's obvious to Oliver that he will need help to complete his quest, so he calls on Diana Jordan, an expert in ancient art and languages, and former lover, who works at the Louvre in Paris. She agrees to help him, despite their tangled history, because his mission unexpectedly dovetails with her own investigation into the origin of a mysterious mural in the museum's Egyptian wing. Together they set off for Egypt, prepared to track down the staff no matter who stands in their way.

It isn't long before Oliver and Diana find themselves in over their heads, confronting undead guardians, ancient cults, and the unleashed power of the staff itself.

A thrilling blend of modern thriller and ancient myth, The Staff of Moses transports readers to a land of blazing sun and chilling terror, where corruption, betrayal, and supernatural forces combine.

Hi Wendy, Do you have PT at 0 dark thirty tomorrow?

Posted on Dec 29, 2013 10:43:00 PM PST
I've managed to get a terrible cold and I'm not feeling very well. I'm sorry I don't have more to offer you for a start today.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 29, 2013 10:45:25 PM PST
Hey Sandy... No, I cancelled my PT appt. for both Monday and Tuesday. I woke Saturday morning with a cold and it's just been getting worse despite all my efforts to stop it.

How are you feeling?

Posted on Dec 29, 2013 10:46:43 PM PST
I thought I would mention, I watched The Sound of Music Live! tonight..
I have to say that I was not impressed at all... Wish I had read another Christmas book instead...

LOB, thank you for starting off the week for us. I'm sorry you are not well. I hope you feel better soon.

eta. made the post on my phone and it was garbage!

My asthma is acting up too which is typical when I have a cold. I'm sorry your back is still acting up. I suppose the cold weather doesn't help.

That and I'm not getting enough sleep/rest...

I forgot to post after the concert. It was fabulous!

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 29, 2013 10:58:04 PM PST
Thank you Sally. Fingers crossed a good nights sleep will have me feeling better tomorrow.

Morning Sally, What are your plans for today?

Hi Sandy, No plans in particular for today. I'm watching the last day of the cricket match on TV. It's very hot here today and my son and DIL with the kids have just been here for a swim.

You need to train yourself to get more sleep! Do you often have back trouble. What is the actual problem?

I'm glad you enjoyed the concert. He looked very good on the video you posted.

Posted on Dec 30, 2013 2:57:43 AM PST
The doctors tell me that my back pain is caused by arthritis in the lower back.. "but not any more than anyone else your age"
BS on that I see very few women in their mid-fifties that have this much trouble walking, or going up one or two steps..
Some days are fine and others are really bad.. Not much I can do about it..

The concert was so very good.. He and his parents hosted a reception at a coffee house after where he played some more
and his wife sang with him... Good night all around... And I even got a parking place very near the door..

Hi everyone! I wanted to thank Elizabeth SH (thru DonnaBeGood) for the very unexpected gift of The Black Phone. I know that I have been away for quite some time, but as well all know RL can hammer you from all sides. You all remain in my thoughts, even when I'm off wallowing in my other life!
Happy holidays and a wonderful New Year to you all.

I also would like to thank Elizabeth SH through DonnaBeGood for the also extremely unexpected gift of Love Is The Beginning (Valerie Dearborn). I, too, have not been on this thread for most of this year, for no particular reason other than laziness and emotional lethargy. I read the free books thread and then I lost this one. Went to page 2 to dig it up so I could thank you, lol!!

I should come back here - I loved everyone here. My life is still in chaos. In fact, one of the things I must do in the next week is start to look for lawyer #3.

Anyway, to all of my old friends here, I am so sorry for my stupidity and that I took you all for granted. I will try to do better in the coming year. Happy New Year to all of you - Beth

LOB, thanks for starting. As usual, beautiful artwork.

Donna, I really like how you are bringing people back to FB& Thank you for paying it forward.

Michal (Ames Chronicles)
Michal couldn't believe her eyes when she opened her mail and discovered she was about to become a published author. The mother of three had dreamed of this for years. What she had never imagined was how popular the books would become, nor could she have predicted the trouble that was going to arise from her success. When tragedy strikes the family, Michal inadvertently draws the attention of the local police, the district attorney, and the Secret Service. Now she must discern her friends from those who wish to destroy all she has built.

Good morning, all you FBaC-ers! Finally catching up after being away for a week (with lousy Wifi) and then coming back to cover other people's vacation time at work. Gotta love the holidays.

First, I want to thank LOB for the amazing animated card she sent me Christmas Day -- I do animations and I know the incredible amount of work that went into it, it was so lovely. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful site. Please excuse my belated thanks, but it is surely sincere. :D

I hope you'll be feeling better soon, LOB, and the start was just perfect. Again, thank you.

It was so fun to see my baby boy Dusty practically dance when I arrived home. John insisted he whined all week while I was gone, but he seems to have recovered immediately... living in the moment will do that for ya. ;)

I'll be back tomorrow, since we're off to the grocery store for today -- gotta have those shelves stocked, LOL. I loved all the New Year's traditions, good thing my guy is tall, dark, and handsome-enough-for-me!

Wishing all good health (or healing), prosperity and lots of belly laughs in the New Year.

I was a lurker for so long and love to see names I recognise posting again. You are a very familiar name Bethcross and it would be so nice to see you back.

We are sitting outside with a pork roast on the weber, vegies being done in the kitchen and cold beers .What more can I ask for on a Monday evening?"

@Lover of Books
Sorry to hear about your cold! I have one also, but it's a pretty wimpy one, at least. Hope you feel better soon and thank you for starting the thread in spite of your illness ---- the champagne glasses were perfect!
