ALEX HUNT and SAM QUINN are back for another gripping and exhilarating Action-packed Archaeological Adventure!
On Friday, September 13, 2013, two recreational cavers, Rick Hunter and Steven Tucker accidentally discovered a bed of mysterious fossil bones thirty meters underground in an unchartered cave just outside Johannesburg, South Africa.
Now, recruited by the United Nations, Alex Hunt and her trusted sidekick, Sam Quinn, are tasked to unearth and retrieve the last remaining fossil evidence from a death-defying underground cave system before it gets destroyed in a country at war. But, what was intended to be a walk in the park for the seasoned archaeologists, soon became more than they were prepared for.
Caught between the crossfire of a country plunged into a historically charged political war, keeping their wits about them and allegiance to their mission are the only things keeping them from being killed.
But the stakes are raised when a narcissistic billionaire with a sinister desire to feed his ego will stop at nothing to hunt down the fossil. Seeking more than mere power and acclaim his motives drive him to stop at nothing to get his hands on the antiquity before anyone else does.
Will Alex and Sam successfully complete their mission and escape South Africa unscathed, or will this be their first mission to leave more harm than good in its wake?
The Alpha Strain is Book #3 in the Alex Hunt Adventure Thriller series and can be read as a standalone.
