Lovereading view...

An ancient discovery. A hidden past. A deadly conspiracy to bury the truth. He was told his was the only name on their list. But for brilliant young anthropologist Paul Carlsson, asked to examine the cache of bones found on as remote Indonesian jungle island, fascination soon turns to fear. Because waiting for him east of Java is evidence of something that shouldn't exist; a revelation that if made public will turn scientific and religious orthodoxy on its head...

If you like Ted Kosmatka you might also like to read books by Clive Cussler, Stel Pavlou and Michael Crichton.

Synopsis

The Prophet of Bones by Ted Kosmatka

If Carlsson discovers the truth too many powerful interests have far too much to lose. But not every prophet is without honour. And Carlsson, alone and on the run, is determined to reveal the discovery to a world in which the church and science have conspired to hide it. A world which, it's been proven, is only 5,800 years old...The Prophet of Bones is Ted Kosmata's enthralling second novel. The Games showcased Kosmata's imaginative genius and The Prophet of Bones is no different. Fans of Robert Harris, Michael Crichton and Sam Bourne will be hooked.

Reviews

Praise for Ted Kosmata:

'A masterwork of intrigue and menace. I was enthralled.' Clive Cussler

'A hell of a storyteller ...one of those increasingly rare novels that immediately takes you on a journey into the world of the author's wondrous imagination ...truly hard to put down. This is what a novel is about.' Nelson DeMille
