“Due to a squeezed schedule, the publication of The Devil Colony will be pushed off until next summer (June 2011). I was disappointed to learn this, but it was not totally unexpected. Publishers like to have manuscripts hitting an editor’s desk about a year before it is due to be published. The reason for that long lead-time is to help in promotion, marketing, and getting Advanced Readers Copies to reviewers.”–James Rollins

Book after book these authors deliver suspense, intrigue, and offer creative answers to some of history’s greatest mysteries. With the world frequently hanging in the balance their heroes save mankind from the latest villain, while simultaneously unraveling ancient riddles.
So how could I resist when I learned of a new author with a story lauded by Jim Rollins, Doug Preston, Steve Berry, Gayle Lynds and Chris Kuzneski? I read an advance and was knocked out. Morrison brings a new voice to adventure, and I predict will earn his own place in the genre. I know I already have a place on my bookshelf reserved for his books!
Join me in welcoming Boyd Morrison to our community of collectors.” – John Hutchinson, co-owner of VJ Books
Legend has it that somewhere on Mt. Ararat sits the remains of Noah’s Ark.
In a genre that has shown us the whereabouts of the Island of Atlantis, King Solomon’s Mine, Alexander’s Library, and the gold of the Incas, it was only a matter of time for The Ark itself to see daylight.
Morrison delivers all of the thrills we’ve come to expect is his debut novel, The Ark (Touchstone, May 2010). The story begins with archaeologist Hasad Arvadi announcing that his lifelong search for Noah’s Ark is about to bear fruit as he struggles to record his final thoughts, trapped in a darkened chamber, succumbing to multiple gun shot wounds.
The story roars to life as Arvadi’s daughter, Dilara Kenner, also an archaeologist is marked for death by the same dark force that has taken her father’s life. She teams up with Tyler Locke, an engineer whose past may offer clues to a plot so sinister that it signals an end to the human experience. Locke and Kenner race against time to unravel a vast conspiracy led by a villain so real it will make your skin crawl. Can they stop him in time, and how does the story of the flood and Noah’s Ark fit in?
Move over Dirk Pitt, stand aside Phil Mercer, watch out Cotton Malone, Tyler Locke is on the scene promising Boyd Morrison a commanding place at the adventure table.
The Ark has it all, a tall dark hero with unsurpassed skills and incredible timing, a beautiful archeologist who can handle herself in a fight, a wealthy bad guy with plans to dominate the world, and clues to a ancient mystery that will have you rethinking human history.
The Library of Gold is not your average local library-it’s a long-lost archive containing gold-covered, bejeweled books dating all the way back to the ancient Greeks.
