The authorities are keen to cover it up, but they know they can’t achieve total closure whilst English robotics engineer, Ben Anderson, remains in possession of a powerful image. An image, which suggests the Great Pyramid at Giza was not built by ancient Egyptians.

What the Egyptian authorities don’t know is that unless the true meaning behind the image can be established, along with other images which will later surface, the future of mankind will face the most serious threat imaginable.

Anderson manages to escape Egypt at the earliest opportunity, together with his astrophysicist girlfriend, Samantha Gibson, but the authorities are quickly on their tail when it becomes evident they have arrested the wrong person.

Keen to establish who really built the Pyramids, Anderson seeks to gain additional proof to support his theory. As he and Gibson begin to discover a series of seemingly disparate clues, they soon realise that everything is far from straightforward.

Whilst seeking additional resources, Gibson is unwittingly embroiled in the internal politics of the US military, with the result that she becomes a pawn in a vicious power struggle involving a corrupt senior officer. Her path crosses that of an ex-lover and her relationship with Anderson stretches to breaking point. As Anderson begins to see Gibson from a totally different perspective, his focus changes, and he pushes himself well beyond the limits of his comfort zone in an attempt to discover the truth.

Gibson is now prepared to do anything to fulfill a lifetime ambition, but as her objective becomes almost within her grasp a virulent virus threatens to stop her . . . and Anderson has the antidote . . . together with a totally different agenda. And so an unprecedented race begins to finally reveal the true legacy of the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The Pyramid Legacy is a thriller, but also has a story of love and deceit deeply woven in.

Review by Kathleen P. Rowland: I have to admit, a murder mystery with the Great Pyramid of Giza hooked me in. Having researched Egyptology, I respected the authenticity as the story unfolded. Instead of finding hieroglyphics, an engraving begins to explain a murder of a young Egyptologist by an older colleague. If you love high spirited adventure, you won’t be able to put down The Pyramid Legacy by brilliant writer Clive Eaton.

Review by Rachel Amphlett: Clive Eaton’s debut novel is a breakneck tale which manages to encompass the genres of thriller, adventure and science fiction in one tightly-written storyline.

I am not a sci-fi fan per se, but the book lends itself well to the genre without going overboard – the scenes are a necessary part of the storyline without detracting from the on-Earth action.

Right from the start, the characters are engaging, the descriptions of scenes just enough to allow the reader’s own imagination to take flight, and the pace is electrifying.

I’ve already recommended this book to readers on my own website and will do the same here – set aside a couple of days and lose yourself in this great debut novel – you won’t be disappointed.

But Skye managed to get away. Now as an adult, a survivor, she’s on the prowl for monsters like the one who took her that day from the park, putting an end to her childhood.

Josh Ander is the geeky, wealthy owner of a gaming company. The night he crosses paths with Skye Cree, changes his life forever, putting him on a different path entirely than the one he’d planned.

Once Josh and Skye join forces, they’ll venture into the dark side of Seattle where human trafficking thrives and kids are bought and sold every day. With girls disappearing off the streets in alarming numbers, with young lives hanging in the balance, they’ll do whatever it takes to hunt down the ones preying on kids. But not all can be saved. It will take a wolf’s instincts to find the monsters burying—the bones of others.

Review by Paulette Mahurin: Vickie McKeehan’s The Bones of Others is a well written fast paced exciting read that kept me glued to the page till the end. The protagonist Skye Cree was the victim at a young age of kidnapping and rape, only to be transformed into an effective vigilante adult who meets her match, the love of her life, in the male lead, the multimillionaire, Josh Anders who is the creative genius (and owner) behind a gaming company.

Together they team up, helped by her spirit guide to conquer the unimaginable. Scenes involving child sex trafficking are not overdone lending to making this a compelling read that left out a lot of gore imagery. The sexual scenes were titillating and inviting bringing you into a love relationship that was plausible and authentic, you want this couple to make it and surmount the challenges faced.

There were a sub-cast of really interesting characters and paranormal plot themes that added to the richness of the story. I particularly liked the descriptions of the scenes, of the environment, that are extremely well done in detail and writing.

Review by Lauren Alumbaugh: Skye has had a hard life to say the least, kidnapped and raped as a child followed by losing her parents. Skye as an adult is determined to help other children who are put in those same situations. Little does she know she is going to meet Josh, her soul mate and saviour one night while patrolling the streets. Excellent storyline that will pull at your heartstrings.

Be prepared to have strong emotions in this book, it is based on child abuse. However the author did an amazing job with this story, giving hope that you can change your future.
