A 700-YEAR-OLD MYSTERY IS ABOUT TO BE SOLVED. BUT HOW MANY MUST DIE FIRST?

A former President's son is kidnapped in a brazen attack on the streets of Potomac by the same ancient organization that murdered his father, convinced he knows the location of an item stolen from them by the late President.

A close friend awakens from a coma with a message for Archaeology Professor James Acton from the same organization, sending him along with his fiancée on a quest to find an object only rumored to exist, while trying desperately to keep one step ahead of a foe hell-bent on possessing it.

And 700 years ago, the Mongol Empire threatens to fracture into civil war as the northern capital devolves into idol worship, the Khan sending in a trusted family to save the empire—two brothers and a son, Marco Polo, whose actions have ramifications that resonate to this day.

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. Highly recommended."
