At the beginning of the Christian era, a Roman centurion stationed in Jerusalem is ordered to guard duty over a tomb. What he sees will change his life forever. A novel by a first time author. More
The author is a retired US Navy officer who has always been a voracious reader of adventure books and history, much of it military. He is almost 75 years old and this is his first book. He had the idea of the story percolating in his mind for years and one day sat down and wrote it in a few weeks. It sat unpublished. Several years later, he read an article about Smashwords and decided to give it a try and publish the book himself.
The book is an adventure story with action and some romance and history thrown in. It takes place in the very early days of Christianity in the Roman province of Judea in ancient Israel. Christians will like the background but one does not have to be one to enjoy the book. It is foremost an adventure story. The gist of the tale is as follows: At the beginning of the Christian era, a Roman centurion stationed in Jerusalem is ordered to guard duty over a tomb of a recently crucified Jew. What he sees will change his life forever. He has to flee for his life accompanied by his lover. At the end they succeed in escaping and go on to live a long happy life.
