A queen and jewels. An ancient evil. A thrilling mystery.
In The Jewels of Jezebel, thousands of years ago, Queen Jezebel, a Baal worshiper, brought in 800 Baal prophets and ordered the slaughter of Israel's faithful prophets. After King Ahab was killed in battle, and Jehu became king, Jezebel was murdered while wearing her jewels.
Now, psychology graduate Daniel DiBenedetto and historian Magena Nightcloud seek those jewels. Their quest begins with a trip to the ruins of Samaria, where the Temple of Baal may have been located. They obtain a cryptic poem that may lead them to the jewels - or on a wild chase to their deaths.
As they follow the clues and meet a mysterious woman who offers to help them, they cross paths with a secret society and endure perilous situations that threaten to tear them apart. When the danger leads to bloodshed, they must decide whether to even trust each other.
Will Daniel and Magena work together to find the jewels? Or will they die in pursuit of the priceless gems that once belonged to an evil queen?
