Praise for the Betrayed series…

"It was mystery, thriller, romance, all interwoven and it was so good. If some novels feel like cotton candy, this was steak and potatoes!" --Regina Shirdley, Blog Tour de Force.com Reviewer

"If you're looking for an action-packed, thought-provoking story that will have you hooked from the very beginning, then I highly recommend 30 Pieces of Silver. I can't wait for the sequel!" --Dieter Schweiss -Reviewer for Quiet Rumblings
Havoc (The Betrayed Series) by Carolyn McCray

A paleo-archaeologist and her ex-lover, a Special Forces soldier, team up to uncover a millennia-old conspiracy, only to be targeted by the deadly cult guarding the true contents of the original Ten Commandments.

The biblical account of Moses receiving the Ten Commandments from God has the holy man descending from Mount Sinai with two stone tablets. But what's been left out is that the Ten Commandments only filled a single tablet.

So what was on the second?

Paleo-archaeologist Dr. Rebecca Monroe is researching biblical artifacts when terrorists attack her London research facility. She survives thanks only to her past - and currently estranged - lover, Special Forces sergeant Vincent Brandt. But their safety is short-lived as the pair discovers they're the prime targets of the Disciples of the Stone, an ancient cult that guards the mysterious second stone tablet and believes Rebecca's knowledge jeopardizes a secret that has lasted millennia.

Pursued from London to Moscow to the Middle East, Rebecca and Brandt race to uncover the hidden tablet and discover its devastating truth, which threatens to unravel the faith of billions. But as their dangerous mission draws the former lovers together once more, it's Rebecca's and Brandt's faith in each other that faces the biggest test.

Meet the Author

Carolyn has had a long and extremely interesting road to become a bestseller.

When she headed to veterinary school those many years ago, she had no idea decades later she would be writing controversial historical thrillers, gut wrenching mysteries and roller coaster-style action/adventure tales!

Born in San Francisco and raised in the beautiful Napa Valley, Carolyn always had an overactive imagination. As a child you could usually find her dragging the neighborhood children out to the haunted barn to make her Nancy Drew-style audio tapes. Oh and did she mention, there was an entire life-sized recreation of the nativity scene in the rafters? Yeah, that wasn't just a little creepy.

Which of course was great practice for writing such blockbusters as Plain Jane: A Patterson-style thriller with a dash of Hannibal, and 30 Pieces of Silver: An Extremely Controversial Historical Thriller.

Carolyn is honored to have a seven book contract with Amazon's mystery and thriller imprint, Thomas & Mercer along with being one of the eight books during the inaugural launch of Amazon's new Serial program (9th Circle).

With over 250,000 books sold, Carolyn now lives on a beautiful lake in the Pacific Northwest where the fog rolls in over the water, snuffing out all signs of life around her. Yep, she still loves the creepy!
