All Roads Lead to Zion
Keep the peace... by order of the Emperor, Tiberius Caesar More than fourteen hundred miles from the seat of government, under-manned and under-financed, a veteran Roman officer is assigned to maintain order and keep the peace in Judea. Roman Centurion Gaius Julius Comminus struggles to fulfill his duty against a madman who haunts the roads of Zion bent on the murder and plunder of Roman citizens. Complicating, possibly even compromising the investigation, is the political intrigue of the times and secret mutterings of rebellion spawned by the ministry of a young rabbi from Nazareth. Is he the Messiah, a son of David, prophesied to restore Israel? Peace, it seems, is not going to come easy. .."...You'll never be the same afterwards." "Who better to write the story of an ancient police officer than a contemporary one? In All Roads Lead to Zion, retired police Lt. Wm Edmunds uses his skills of today to research and write the gripping tale of Gaius Julius Cominus, the Roman Centurion who obeyed the order to crucify Jesus the Christ. March the streets of Jerusalem, taste the dust, see the agony, suffer with a man who lived his life in the military and was forced by duty to take part in the most cataclysmic event in history. Edmunds will take you there, and like Gaius, you'll never be the same afterward." Lauraine Snelling Best selling author of The Red River Series, Daughters of Blessing, Breaking Free and more
