About Disciple's Curse
Paperback; 172 pages; 5.5 x 8.5 inches, $14.95
"Anyone touching any of the skekels will die; anyone who possesses all thirty has the potential to rule the world..."
In Disciple's Curse, Will Prescott, an archeologist who heads the Munismatic division of the Smithsonian Institute,
has just discovered a forgotten bunker belonging to Adolf Hitler. The bunker contains many stolen relics and
among them are five mysterious ancient silver coins, called "shekels."
Will's research indicates that these are in fact five of an original thirty shekels, buried in hallowed ground by the
Apostle Paul in 49 A.D. They were hidden away to protect the world from an evil curse that had been placed on
the coins. After centuries at rest, the 30 shekels were disturbed and mysteriously removed from their depository.
Tracing their cursed trail shows that several historically well-known despots had tried to tap into their mystic
powers in their attempts to rule the world. Each of the ambitious leaders were denied world domination when the
shekels again mysteriously disappeared.
Now the question needs to be answered: "Who has the other twenty-five coins?"
