Shadowing an intelligence operative on a mission to an archaeological dig might sound like an easy gig. But the dig is behind enemy lines and the G-man is playing his cards close to his chest. For Arthur Fortunato, none of that adds up to good survival odds. An incursion into an archaeological dig. An easy gig? Ships might fly. Fire and Sand is a short, action-packed prequel to the Zero-Point Awakening Series: a quirky serialized science-fiction thriller. If you are a fan of page-turning quick reads, you won’t want to miss this one.
