Elisha's Bones by Don Hoesel

Hi Readers!

This is a book that will keep your mind moving the entire time! It is like a cross between Magnuim PI and Indian Jones. The main character seemingly wrote the book, so you get to read it all from a first person perspective. While I am still not at all sure what Dr. Jake Hawthorne really looks like, I feel like I have read his autobiography of this adventure he lived through. That is a pretty neat way to write a book if you ask me!

Jake Hawthrone finds himself eye-ball and gun point deep in a mystery that he wonders if God would even allow, while his ex-finace' is by his side making matter both better and worse. This book is definatly worth reading, and I am so glad I was able to read it while on a short trip! That has been a great deal of enjoyment for me.

Check it out when you get time!

Elisha's Bones

(Bethany House March 1, 2009)


Don Hoesel


Don Hoesel was born and raised in Buffalo, NY but calls Spring Hill, TN home. He is a Web site designer for a Medicare carrier in Nashville, TN. He has a BA in Mass Communication from Taylor University and has published short fiction in Relief Journal.

He lives in Spring Hill with his wife and two children.

Elisha's Bones is his first novel.


Every year, professor of antiquities Jack Hawthorne looks forward to the winter break as a time to hide away from his responsibilities. Even if just for a week or two. But this year, his plans are derailed when he's offered almost a blank check from a man chasing a rumor.

Billionaire Gordon Reese thinks he knows where the bones of the prophet Elisha are--bones that in the Old Testament brought the dead back to life. The bones of the prophet once raised the dead to life... but they vanished from history in a whisper.

Bankrolled by a dying man of unlimited means, Hawthorne's hunt spans the globe and leads him into a deadly conspiracy older than the church itself. A born skeptic, Jack doesn't think much of the assignment but he could use the money, so he takes the first step on a chase for the legendary bones that will take him to the very ends of the earth.

But he's not alone. Joined with a fiery colleague, Esperanza Habilla, they soon discover clues to a shadowy organization whose long-held secrets have been protected . . . at all costs. And he soon discovers those sworn to keep the secret of the bones will do anything to protect them. As their lives are threatened again and again, the real race is to uncover the truth before those chasing them hunt them down.
