Roman Ice: An Archaeological Thriller Publisher's Summary
His rich discovery will make history...if someone doesn’t steal it first.
Archeologist Darwin Lacroix wants to rewrite history - that ancient Romans used lava tubes to secretly travel around Europe. But generations of his family have been laughed out of academia for suggesting it. He too is ready to quit...when a diamond cache in Iceland links to artifacts in the London underground.
When a powerful cartel seizes control of the hunt, Darwin’s quest becomes a race against time to reveal the mother lode. With a volcanologist and an unsavory diamond expert on board, the academic’s search for riches meets lethal obstacles at every turn. Deep underground, the choices Darwin makes could determine who in his party makes it out alive.
Roman Ice is a thrilling suspense novel where Dave Bartell weaves together plot lines set thousands of years apart and incorporates plausible scientific discovery with lava tubes. If you like alternate history, archaeological adventures, and complex characters, then you’ll love this action-packed tale.
