Blood and Bone by Don Hoesel

Having read Don Hoesel's Elijah's Bones in the past, when given the opportunity to review  Blood and  Bone which is the third book in the series of the adventures of archaeologist Dr. Jack Hawthorne.  Dr. Hawthorne is a college professor who previously had been hired to find the bones of the prophet Elijah. He found them after many adventures and much intrigue and danger from a variety of sources.

Blood and Bone finds him again looking for Elijah's Bones which have been moved from the desert burial place where Dr. Hawthorne had left them. What got him to this place and seeking the bones this time was a rogue CIA agent whose wife is dying and who hopes to see her healed by the residual power of God residing in the bones. Is this the stuff of legends or what? Fast moving powerful men move in to kidnap Dr. Hawthorne's two sons and send he and his wife on the quest to retrieve the bones of Elijah. This quest takes them to Australia, London, Paris, St. Petersburg. They follow clues found embedded in codes they can decipher.

This is adventure. This is intrigue. This is virtually unbelievable. But then, many adventures take us out of our realm of the known and thrust us into the unbelievable and unknown tucked between the pages of a novel. This is fiction and it is an adventurous read. I think they guys will enjoy it and there is not blood and gore, profane language, nor unwanted moral depravity. A safe read. An enjoyable read.
