Rod of Moses

1923. When RAF airman Jack Toulson finds a wooden box buried in the desert, he hopes to uncover a cache of jewels or even an antique sword, but all it contains is a worthless old stick with Arabic writing on it. Disappointed, he shoves it into his bag and thinks no more of it.

The next day, he decides to take a picture of the empty horizon with his new Kodak Hawk-Eye, but when the picture is developed, it shows a camel-train that had not been there. He concludes it must be a fault with the camera.

Jack is wrong on both counts. The stick he held in his hands, and the camel train that appeared in his photograph, were a window into another time a thousand years before Christ – a time when King Solomon tried to seduce the beautiful Queen of Sheba by entrusting her with the most precious artefact known to man: the Rod of Moses.

In this gripping novel, the power of the Rod echoes down the generations, from ancient Egypt right through to the present day.
