Don Robeson is called on by fellow archaeologist and quirky friend, Professor Archibald Caulder, to authenticate a hand-written journal. Dated 1587, the journal, if authentic, may be the key that unlocks the oldest mystery in American history – the fate of the Lost Colony of Roanoke.
Soon after Don receives the journal, Archibald Caulder dies suddenly in mysterious circumstances. When the Professor’s beautiful daughter Katherine shows up, Don realizes that someone else is also after the journal and will stop at nothing to get it.
As Don and Katherine scramble to read the diary and unravel the mystery of the Lost Colony, a relentless force pursues them, intent on destroying the journal and anyone who stands in their way. The men chasing them are professional, well educated and heavily armed, with weapons and someone’s money. But whose money is it? As the trail leads them closer to the real culprits behind the abandoned colony, the name Walter Raleigh comes up and the path seems to point directly to the throne of England itself.
Pitted against merciless, ruthless hunters and unable to trust anyone, it will take all of Don’s training and combat experience as a former Navy Seal to keep the journal from falling into the wrong hands and to keep him and Kathleen Caulder alive.

About the Author

George F. Leal was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1951 with a natural fascination for history and literature. Coming from a family of avid readers, he grew up surrounded by literature and books that inspired him to create characters and stories as a young child and to continue writing all his life.
After graduating from Framingham State College he pursued a writing career while also teaching English and History at local high schools. His main employment has always been the Specialty Metals import and export business, where he is employed today.
Although the writing came naturally, getting published was another matter. Twenty-nine years after receiving his first rejection, George’s first novel, Desire Provoketh, was finally published, a story about the Henry Hudson mutiny of 1611, which took place in what is now known as Hudson’s Bay.
George’s latest novel is The Lost Colony of Roanoke, published by American Book Publishers. The mystery of the Lost Colony has haunted historians for hundreds of years and, to this day, remains the oldest mystery in the European settlement of America.
George is now working on a new novel set in turn-of-the-century Russia.
