An Exotic Destination
by Anne Greene
Have you ever wanted to visit the seven churches of The Revelation, the marble city of Ephesus, or follow Paul’s journeys? These sites are all located in what used to be known as Asia Minor, but which are in today’s country of Turkey.
I spent five months in Adana, Turkey on the Incirlik Air Base there. During that time, I visited many exotic places in that amazing land from the exotic city of Istanbul to the gorgeous seacoast towns of Antalya and Alanya. A person need only drive a mile or two before bumping into an archeological site left from the time of Alexander the Great or the Crusaders. Some small villages, with their flat-roofed dwellings, flocks of sheep, and outdoor ovens for baking bread and kilns for pottery, look as if they sprang straight from the pages of the Bible
I fell in love with Turkey. Being a writer, I felt compelled to write a book with the sights and sounds of Turkey as minor characters. My book, Shadow of the Dagger, takes you on a suspense-filled adventure that ends in one of the ruined crusader castles. Shadow of the Dagger is the first book in my CIA Operatives series.
Three people are murdered and one kidnapped to find the solution to a priceless treasure map. As Nicole Phillips seeks to find her kidnapped brother, she doesn’t know whom to trust. No one is who they appear to be. All is deception.
To bring his brother’s murderer to justice, CIA Intel Analyst, Josh Baruch, lays his life on the line. Can he walk the tightrope between obeying the killers’ instructions and bringing them to justice?
Because Nicole’s husband died in a mysterious plane crash, she fears falling in love again with a reckless, danger-loving type like her late husband. Josh Baruch, the CIA Analyst using her as bait to track her brother’s kidnapper, is just such a risk-taking man. Besides living on the edge, Josh is bitter about women and questions God.
For the trip of your life, I highly recommend visiting Turkey.
