POMPEII IS ABOUT TO CLAIM ITS FINAL VICTIMS—TWO THOUSAND YEARS LATER!

Two thousand years ago, Roman Emperor Vespasian tries to preserve an empire by hiding a massive treasure in the quiet town of Pompeii should someone challenge his throne. Unbeknownst to him, nature is about to unleash its wrath upon the Empire, during which the best and worst of Rome’s citizens will be revealed during a time when duty and honor were more than words, they were ideals worth dying for.

Archaeology Professor James Acton has just arrived in Egypt to visit his fiancée at her dig site, when a United Nations helicopter arrives carrying representatives with an urgent demand that they come to Eritrea to authenticate an odd find that threatens to start a war—an ancient Roman vessel with over one billion dollars of gold in its hold.

It is a massive amount of wealth found in the world’s poorest region, and everyone wants it. Nobody can be trusted, not even closest friends or even family. Greed, lust, and heroism are the orders of the day, as the citizens of Pompeii try to survive nature’s fury, and James Acton tries to survive man’s greed while risking his life to protect those around him.

USA Today bestselling author J. Robert Kennedy delivers the historical drama and modern day action in Pompeii's Ghosts his fans have come to expect. Pompeii’s Ghosts opens with a shocker that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the thrilling conclusion in a story torn from today’s headlines.

Grab your copy today, and relive the horror of Pompeii!

"If you love historical fiction, then read this book! You will feel as if you are part of the erupting city of Pompeii. The terror these people felt runs through the story lines as you will not want stop reading!"

"I found myself feeling the panic of the people of Pompeii as the earth trembled and Mount Vesuvius exploded. Kennedy's ability to make you experience the horror of that day makes this book worth reading but throw in the action that Laura and James along with the Delta force members experience makes it a thrilling ride from start to finish.
