    Is it conceivable that the power of God surging through Elisha's bones could be harnessed yet today? What if your life and the lives of those you care about depend upon you finding them first?

    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. This year, his plans are derailed when he's offered a blank check from a man chasing a rumor. Billionaire Gordon Reese thinks he knows where the bones of the prophet Elisha are. 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. Born a skeptic, Jack doesn't think much of the assignment but he could use the money. He takes the first step on a chase for the legendary bones that will take him to the very ends of the earth. Jack soon finds that he got much more than he bargained for. The quest for Elisha's bones will take Jack across the globe to the likes of Venezuela, Ethiopia, and elsewhere. Throughout this adventure, Jack must contend both with others who are intent on finding the bones and those who intend to protect them.

    In the process of searching for the bones of the prophet, Jack must face many of the skeletons that have suddenly come back to life right out of his own closet. He is finding, real or not, the power of Elisha's bones to be alive and well, if only figuratively. As the quest progresses, the stakes rise higher, the focus of the quest becomes less about finding the bones and more about getting out with his life. Finding the bones may be the only way to do it.

    If you like Biblical archaeology, adventure action, and a good mystery, you'll love this entertaining story. As I read through the pages of this intriguing story I envisioned Harrison Ford playing the role, since I prefer to watch movies unfold as I read. This one definitely had the expertise and professionalism within its magical covers.

    This was a very slow read for me. The book didn't grab my attention at the beginning and it was a struggle to finish. The quality is good & the structure is fine. It was just too many details that didn't add to the story for me. I kept expecting for the story to pick up & take off. I had great expectations for the entire book; with the title of Elisha's Bones who wouldn't! There were a handful of times that the book held my attention but for me there were too many times that it did not. Maybe I 'had it figured out before I turned the cover' and ruined it for myself????

    The book starts out a little slow, but soon the reader is caught up in the story. Good reading.
