About the Book: (from Amazon)
Dr. Sean Casey is a skilled neurologist who deals with death and the intangibles of the nervous system on a daily basis. From the lips of a beautiful woman who claims to be the dead man's sister, he hears that his friend Jose Santiago has
been murdered. Santiago, a young graduate student, had been conducting archeological research in the Yucatan. A desire for the truth, the tantalizing woman, and the intrigue that Casey never knew surrounded Santiago are the driving forces that lead the physician to a labyrinthine temple deep within the rain forest. Between the indigenous peoples, the drug trade, and the DEA, it's a dangerous trek.
In Tuscany, the theft and destruction of a priceless 2,000-year-old icon results in underwater mayhem in an ancient Middle Eastern seaport and a test of wills in the Vatican. Casey's involvement will drastically change his perception of
himself as a healer, and place him on a collision course with some of the greatest relics known to history. To survive, Casey must follow his instincts and his heart--something that has never come naturally for him.
The Jaffa Resonance is uncompromising and unforgettable, with an unrelenting pace and a powerful emotional punch.
