An ancient prophecy. An occult secret. The power to raise the dead.
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling thriller author, J.F.Penn.
When a long-hidden tomb and a body covered in Voodoo symbols are found in New Orleans, ARKANE agent Jake Timber discovers a mystery that stretches back to the Spanish Empire and the bloody dungeons of the Inquisition.
But he is not the only one who seeks the Hand of Ezekiel. A shadowy billionaire, backed by those who seek immortality at any price, will stop at nothing to find the relics that can turn bones to living flesh.
When disaster strikes in the heart of the Louisiana bayou, Jake calls on ARKANE agent Morgan Sierra to help him once more as they race against time across the outposts of the Spanish Empire.
From Madrid and Toledo to the Philippines, Peru, and on to New Orleans and San Francisco, can Morgan and Jake find the relics and stop the resurrection of the dead?
A page-turning archaeological thriller with elements of the supernatural and occult, Valley of Dry Bones blends religious mystery with Indiana Jones-style action adventure.
Valley of Dry Bones is book 10 in the ARKANE action adventure thriller series, but can be read as a stand-alone novel.
Available now in ebook, print and Large Print formats. Coming soon in audio.
“Non-stop action! As usual in the ARKANE stories the reader is hooked during the first paragraph and the line is reeled in until that last page when you are deposited back in the boat of reality.” – David C. Taylor
“Every word moves the plot forward and kept my attention. I hated having to put it down when I was required to and eager to pick it up again. There were a couple twists that I did not see coming, and sets us up nicely for the next book, while still being a complete story by itself.” – Kinba
“Valley of Dry Bones is impossible to put down. By chapter 3, I was finding it difficult to leave my reading nest.
The characters are engaging, the situations are page-turners, and the descriptions of the locations (some of which I have visited) are true to life and make you feel like you're there.” – Sharon
“Fast-paced, action adventure stories are the best. The ARKANE series has continued to deliver on the high-octane stories containing the mad grab for religious relics, against a short timeframe, with foils by interested parties, and masterminded shenanigans by villainous sorts. By the time you reach the end, Penn would have convinced you to head off to the various settings that she gloriously depicted with a touch of artistic license to add the mystery edge. I gobbled up this book.” – Mich Monk
“This latest addition to the ARKANE series won’t disappoint! The fast-paced story takes readers on a journey through New Orleans and Spain and beyond before Morgan and Jake reunite in their quest to find the relics of the Hand of Ezekiel. JF Penn weaves together rich descriptions of place and wonderful imagery with well-researched historical fact in such a way that makes me want to follow in Morgan and Jake’s footsteps.” – Jocelyn P.
