The year is 1835 - in the back alleys of London John Campbell-John is running for his life. A rogue, imposter, swindler - a man without honor, without empathy for his fellow man. But his massive debts have now vindictively caught up with him. He has even stolen from his best friend. He has one option - to flee the country
In Venice, there is a chance encounter and an unlikely friendship emerges. Robert Babcock is everything John is not - honorable, academic, a man on an admirable quest - to travel in Egypt to find the earliest original copies of the Gospels to prove the reliability of the story of Jesus, as told in the King James Bible. Is Gospel Truth, as we say day today, really undeniable.
A story of discovery, of adventure from the River Nile to the endless deserts of Sinai, from ancient Egyptian tombs to fabulous golden artifacts, and ultimately a personal redemption.
Bio/Profile. Stephen Taylor_Author
Stephen Taylor was once a happy and reasonably well-adjusted person; that was until an urge to write invaded his psyche, this need to be a writer, to tell tales; then these thoughts began to coalesce.
A Georgian trilogy was conceived; set in London; a decadent time, a decadent place. See also Gospels - a Georgian adventure story set in Egypt, contemporary novels, and a children's story.
Born in Yorkshire, brought up in Manchester (still an avid Manchester City fan); he is now retired and lives near Loughborough with his partner, a widower with a daughter just finished University. He has always admired the skill of the storyteller and his books aspire to that simple tradition.
