I’m in the final editing stages with the latest Mike Scott thriller Return to Cayman. In the story, I’ve brought back a character from an earlier story, Dr. Francesca “Frankie” DeMarco. She was the central figure in the book Guardians’ Keep that came out in the fall of 2008. Reviewing the story, a friend asked “Have you seen Dig?”
I hadn’t, so I checked it out. My mind was blown.
In Guardians’ Keep, Mike and Frankie were searching for the Breastplate of Judgment, a device worn by the Jewish High Priest when he went into the temple in front of the Ark of the Covenant to talk to God. In Dig, a new 10 part thriller on USA Network Thursday nights at 10 pm., they are looking for the same thing.
I’m not going to give away the story in Guardians’ Keep, or what’s going on in Dig, except to say they are separate stories and other than the breastplate, there is no similarity. Still, I find that piece of ancient history fascinating and for it to show up on television is really interesting to me. If you want more background on the breastplate and what it was used for, you can find that in Guardians’ Keep.
Since someone else is “looking for” the Breastplate of Judgment, I’ve decided to put the Kindle version of Guardians’ Keep on sale while the show airs. For the next two months, you can download Guardian’s Keep for just $.99. (This is the direct link to Amazon.)
If you haven’t read it, you really should before Return to Cayman comes out, so you have added insight into Frankie as well..
