I met an author from Australia in an on line writer’s group. Rosanne Dingli writes from Western Australia.
She has just released a book on Amazon.com with the title According to Luke.
I have had the opportunity to preview the first two chapters. It is a thriller with a Christian theme. Of course, it appears to be just another nice book about an art expert examining an ancient icon. Of course, the art expert is a beautiful woman and the priest who delivers the icon is tempting. So what? It’s not a romance, but she thinks he is good looking. Nevertheless, the story is about the art work. (Ah yes, part of the fun of writing is to weave romance into the thrillers and action into the romances, but I digress.)
Within the first few pages, the art expert discovers the icon is not what it appears to be, it is potentially of great value artistically and historically. She goes through standard note taking procedures and standard security procedures, but notes disappear and she is mugged by someone wanting her USB drive.
Obviously the icon and its hidden information is of more than face value to someone, and I suspect the heroine will be put at risk because of what she has found. I wish I could write as well as Rosanne. This looks like a fun book.
