In 1982, a gifted St. Louis college student traveled to Northwestern Brazil to visit his Lutheran missionary parents. Born and raised in Africa, the epic journey reduced the young man to the most primitive and instinctive forms of survival; but also to the nascent essence of life and death, and the ultimate archetype: the evil nature of man. An incredible story that will challenge the reader to reconsider choices they have made in their own journey through life. An incredible journey of survival, hope and healing.

“Oh my! Shackelford certainly knows how to weave a rich tale. The amount of research that must have gone into this book is staggering, and it reads so authentically that it felt like I was there seeing everything through Edward Hamilton’s eyes.

Edward is a well developed, and a likeable, fascinating, character that I took to straight away, and I am sure you will as well. I thoroughly enjoyed his story and the journey that is Edwards life. Although that incident with the VW Beetle – that was mean, funny, but mean!

I could have quite happily curled up under a warm blanket, and allowed Shackelford to take me away to this wonderfully believable world that he has created, alas life got in the way, but I still managed to read this book within two days – I so did not want to put it down.

If you are looking for a book that is not only rich in detail but also a fantastic read, then I thoroughly recommend The Cherubim Rosewood. I truly loved it. Shackelford is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors.”




A Word from the Author

author-larry-d-shackelford-pictureThe Cherubim Rosewood is unique Orthodox Christian fiction story that takes place in St. Louis, Missouri, Africa, and the Amazon jungle. In the early 1980’s, a gifted St. Louis college student traveled to Northwestern Brazil to visit his Lutheran missionary parents. Edward Hamilton is fascinating college student that possesses unique abilities, which include a photographic memory. Edward was born and raised in Africa, and his epic journey into the Amazon jungle reduced him to the most primitive and instinctive forms of survival; but also to the nascent essence of life and death, and the ultimate archetype: the evil nature of man. Edward’s incredible expedition is a Christian allegory that will challenge the reader to reconsider choices they have made in their own journey through life. Edward’s story is also a journey of survival, hope and healing. Albert Einstein once wrote: “The real problem is in the hearts and minds of men. It is easier to denature plutonium than to denature the evil spirit of man.” Edward learned that no truer words were ever spoken. “This was a young man’s exciting trip deep into the amazon where the jungle is not the only hazard. The excitement builds slowly beginning in 1970s Africa, sidelines to the US then plunges into a grizzly page turning Apocalypse Now conclusion.” Amazon.com reviewer.

The Reliquary is the sequel to The Keresa Headdress. The fast-paced crime fiction novel takes place in Salt Lake City, Utah. The unique cast of characters from the Keresa Headdress are back, along with new team members, to solve another extraordinary criminal investigation involving fossil theft and a psychotic killer.

FBI Special Agent Karen Adams’ career has flat lined since the exciting Keresa Headdress investigation, where she met Special Agent Marcus “Playboy” McCoy and her fiancé, archaeologist Derek Simms. Karen’s supervisor, Roger Miller has since reassigned her to investigating mundane medical waste, fraud and abuse cases.

The missing persons case quickly escalates into a chilling nightmare that no-one could have expected. Karen and Marcus soon discover the murdered scientists along with missing Allosaurus fossils. The violent killer leaves few leads to pursue, and the team enlists Riley, a local polygamist and nudist, along with heavyset homicide detective, Colin Childs, to assist with the investigation. Marcus continues his “Playboy McCoy” antics until he meets Dr. Lisa Gruber, a paleontologist from the University of Utah who is unlike any woman he has ever met.

Dealing with recent personal issues, Karen finds herself in another professional frustrating situation. Unfortunately, she must risk her own life as another case submerges her into the unimaginable underworld of antiquities theft and the criminally insane.

Unfortunately, she must risk her own life as another case submerges her into the unimaginable underworld of antiquities theft and the criminally insane. As the body count rises, Karen is determined to solve the investigation. “Although The Reliquary is the second book in the series, it doesn’t read like one and can very easily stand-alone. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in thrillers, for this book certainly is one. Well done Shackelford, for another wonderful read.” Amazon.com reviewer.

It’s just a routine case at the FBI’s Salt Lake City offices. The young woman’s boyfriend is missing, possibly dead. Agent Karen Adams thinks he’s probably just out with another woman—but then the Royal Canadian Mounted Police come calling. Why would they care about a wayward addict cheating on his girlfriend in Utah? Soon, Karen is involved in a case like nothing she’s ever seen, navigating through an international criminal network of drugs, sex trafficking, murder, and the black market trade of priceless archaeological relics. Her new partner Marcus “Playboy” McCoy—handsome, charming, and almost unbearably crass—is equal parts help and hindrance as she navigates a seamy underworld in the Utah desert. But she also finds assistance from some unusual sources: a graduate student in archaeology, a dissatisfied sister-wife from a polygamous commune, and an undercover Canadian Mountie. Together they become entangled in the web of international crime and the only way out is to find the most priceless artifact of all: the legendary Keresa Headdress.




A Word from the Author

author-larry-d-shackelford-pictureFBI Special Agent Karen Adams career with the FBI has been tenuous at best. Unfortunately, she believes her career has taken an even more undesirable direction when a young, distraught woman visits her Salt Lake City office. The woman’s boyfriend is nowhere to be found, and Karen’s instincts tell her there is more to the story. Her intuition is soon confirmed when she is contacted by an officer with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). Why would the RCMP care about the young woman and her addict boyfriend? Unwittingly, Karen is thrust into a case like she has never seen; a criminal network of drugs, sex trafficking, murder, and the black market trade of priceless, irreplaceable archaeological artifacts. To complicate the investigation, she is partnered with Marcus McCoy, a handsome, charming, and unbearably crass agent from the Department of the Interior, to help her navigate the seamy underworld in the Utah desert. Thankfully, she is assisted by Derek, a graduate student in archeology, a disgruntled sister-wife from a polygamous commune and an undercover Canadian Mountie. Together, they become entangled in a web of international crime they could have never imagined. Karen is convinced that the only way to solve the investigation is to find the most priceless artifact of all: the legendary Keresa Headdress. “The Keresa Headdress is a thrilling combination of adventure, a murder mystery, a treasure hunt, and romance.” Amazon.com reviewer.
