Nothing New Under The Sun: A Suspense Thriller
(A Carter Devereux Mystery Thriller Book 1)
Reg. Price: $4.06
The more Carter Devereux, a professor of archeology, researches and studies the history of the human species, the more he becomes convinced that Solomon was onto something when he said:
â€œThe thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there anything whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.â€ Ecclesiastes 1:9 -11 (Circa 940 BC).
Carterâ€™s research and exploration into this history take him to South America, India and the Middle East where he makes mind-boggling discoveries which challenge our entire view of human history. And before long, Carter finds himself with not only a large number of critics from across the world but also a number of ardent followers.
Through the ages kings, rulers, power seekers and governments have been trying to secretly, and sometimes not so secretly, to get their hands on artifacts believed to have immense power. Examples include the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, Bachal Isu â€“ the staff of Moses, carried by David, and the King of Kings, Jesus Christ, the Spear of Destiny, the time machine â€œthe glockâ€ created by the Germans during WWII, and ancient lost cities with hidden fortunes of gold and artifacts with unimaginable powers.
There is a no shortage of unscrupulous, power hungry people who will do anything, including kill, to possess these relics- if they exist.
Most frightening of them all are the ancient texts that speak of earthâ€™s destruction by nuclear weapons thousands of years ago.
Do those nuclear weapons still exist?
If so where are they?
Can Carter Devereux discover them before anyone else can?
Carter is drawn into the secret world of archeology which he never knew existed where phrases such as; â€œabove top secret,â€ â€“ â€œnever existed,â€ â€“ â€œwill be denied if uncovered,â€ â€“ and â€œblack ops budgets,â€ are part of the language.
Nothing New Under The Sun is a full-length novel, a thought-provoking mystery about the discovery of antediluvian human civilizations and the terrifying consequences of digging up the past.
Nothing New Under The Sun is the first book in J C Ryanâ€™s Carter Devereux Mystery Thriller series, the prequel to the stimulating, fast-paced thriller, The Wolves Of Freydis.

Archeologist Taryn St. Giles has spent her life mining the ruins of the elves who vanished from the Four Kingdoms a thousand years ago. But when her patrons begin disappearing tooâ€”and then turning up deadâ€”she finds herself unemployed, restless, and desperate. So she goes looking for other missing things: as a bounty hunter.
Tracking her first fugitiveâ€”the distractingly handsome and strangely charming Alricâ€”she unearths a dangerous underworld of warring crime lords, demonic squirrels, and a long-lost elven artifact capable of unleashing a hell on earth.
Chased, robbed, kidnapped, and distressingly low on rent money, Taryn just wants one quiet beer and to catch her fugitive. But thereâ€™s more to Alric than his wicked grinâ€”is he a wanted man or the cityâ€™s only hope? With menacing mages in pursuit and her three alcoholic faery sidekicks always in her hair, Tarynâ€™s curiosity might finally solve the mystery of the elvesâ€¦ or be the death of her and destroy her world.
I’m not who they think I am. A docile girl who meekly obeys her stepmother and stepsisters. Some kind of sick angel who cheerfully bears their mistreatment. That’s what I WANT them to think. Because then they won’t suspect what I’m really up to.
The ball, the prince – it’s all part of my plan to come out on top. Stepmother and her demented daughters will pay for every floor I have scoured, every sneer I have borne. They don’t know about the white magic, how I use it to enhance myself. They can’t see that my heart is black as midnight, rotten as a poisoned apple.
They’re about to find out.
