By S. L. Linnea

Author S. L. Linnea is actually two people.  Sharon Linnea and her co-author Chaplain Barbara Sherer who is currently serving a tour of duty in Iraq.

These two women have combined their considerable talent to write a thrilling trilogy.  TREASURE OF EDEN is the third book in the series, but it's a stand alone book.  A reader doesn't have to read the first two to enjoy this one.

The story begins when two Bedouin boys find a treasure, an ancient, jewel-encrusted box in a cave in the Judean wilderness.   More than a half-century later, the box is for sale on E-Bay.   The reappearance of the box, a Bedouin wedding and an Economic Summit, put Army Chaplin Jamie Richards in one of the most dangerous situations of her life.

Several years ago, Jamie helped discover the location of the Garden of Eden.  After a three-year stay in Paradise, she is armed with eternal secrets and knowledge that mere mortals will kill to possess. 

The plot thickens as Jamie renews her acquaintance with an old friend, only to find she has been betrayed and turned over to a rogue CIA agent who will make her pay the ultimate price unless she gives him the secret to the box and the Garden of Eden.  Can Jamie escape her captor and find the box before it falls into the wrong hands revealing its secrets?

Wow, this novel is a real thrill ride.  It is intelligently written with a plot that twists and turns.  I really enjoyed the complexity.  What do you think?
