The Ghost Manuscript

(2019)
A novel by

 
 
Rare-book authenticator Carys Jones wanted nothing more than to be left alone to pursue her obsession with ancient manuscripts. But when her biggest client is committed to an asylum, he gives Carys an offer she cannot refuse. In exchange for his entire library of priceless Dark Age manuscripts, she must track the clues hidden in a previously unknown journal, clues that lead to a tomb that could rewrite the history of Western civilization.

But there are people who would do anything to stop her from finding what she seeks - for reasons both noble and evil. The hunt takes her to places she never thought she'd go, physically and emotionally: first to Wales, her estranged father's homeland, then to bed with Dafydd, a mysterious Welshman who agrees to help her with the search, and, finally, deep inside her own psyche when the monk who wrote the journal 1,500 years ago appears and assists her in her search.

Genre: Thriller

Praise for this book

"Settle back and savor this one. Plenty of sizzle and emotional clout...a barrage of breathless, cross-cutting suspense." - Steve Berry

"Absolutely addictive—Indiana Jones with a female lead. And I would follow heroine Carys anywhere: she's funny, warm, smart, and vulnerable. The fact that she's leading us on a treasure hunt—accompanied by a ghostly monk, no less—makes this a buddy story, a detective story, a thriller, a terrific read you will never forget." - Jenna Blum
