A desperate quest… A disturbing secret disclosed for centuries in an ancient manuscript. Five governments on a mission to exploit what is protects... London, UK. Calla Cress thrives as a curator at London’s prestigious British Museum, handling restoration and cataloging of the late Roman and Byzantine collections. When summoned to Berlin by the British government to validate the authenticity of the Deveron Manuscript, a baffling artifact that has defied interpretation for centuries, she discovers a disturbing secret about its origins and purpose. Alarming in its decryption and damaging in its technological impact, a secret that has, luckily, remained concealed. Until now. Against protocol, she holds on to the artifact, believing it belonged to her parents who went missing after her birth. Now, with the government prepared to hunt her like a criminal for its translation and recovery, Calla is desperate for truth and survival. She must uncover the ambiguities around her parents’ disappearance, unravel the manuscript’s enigmatic puzzle and withhold its decryption from those that seek it most – the government. Pushed to explain the unexplainable, her only allies are Nash Shields, a senior NSA, intelligence analyst and Jack Kleve, a technology entrepreneur. Locked on a collision course with professional assassins, the trio undertakes a complex journey from London to Rome, Macedonia to Morocco, and Jordan to the wilderness of Sub-Saharan Africa that throws them into a mystical secret dating back several centuries. A revelation that will numb technology and question history. THE DEVERON MANUSCRIPT is a fast-paced, on-the-edge action-adventure seeped in history, combining suspense and a hint of the paranormal. REVIEW "It's brilliantly written. I loved the very descriptive side, which was a good way of visualising and getting to terms with each new place, as the action takes place in several different countries." C. F.
