What happens to a lost child? In THE LOST THRONE, he becomes a pope - to be exact, he becomes Pope Victor III (1086-1087). While the Catholic Church as an official account of Victor III and his origins, rumors persist that he was in fact a Jew. Spun from imagination and a rich detail of 11th century Europe, the author weaves a story of heartache, love, feudal conflict and papal intrigue. The story of Pope Victor III has never been told from this perspective or with such insights. For those who love papal history, THE LOST THRONE is a must read.

Royalty, revolution, and scientific mystery---the dramatic true account of the fate of Louis XVII, son of Marie Antoinette, and an extraordinary detective story that spans more than two hundred years. Louis-Charles, Duc de Normandie, enjoyed a charmed early childhood in the gilded palace of Versailles. At the age of four, he became the dauphin, heir to the most powerful throne in Europe. Yet within five years he was to lose everything. Drawn into the horror of the French Revolution, his family was incarcerated and their fate thrust into the hands of the revolutionaries who wished to destroy the monarchy. In 1793, when Marie Antoinette was beheaded at the guillotine, she left her adored eight-year-old son imprisoned in the Temple Tower. Far from inheriting a throne, the orphaned boy-king had to endure the hostility and abuse of a nation. Two years later, the revolutionary leaders declared Louis XVII dead. No grave was dug, no monument built to mark his passing. Immediately, rumors spread that the prince had, in fact, escaped from prison and was still alive. Others believed that he had been murdered, his heart cut out and preserved as a relic. As with the tragedies of England's princes in the Tower and the Romanov archduchess Anastasia, countless "brothers" soon approached Louis-Charles's older sister, Marie-Therese, who survived the revolution. They claimed not only the dauphin's name, but also his inheritance. Several "princes" were plausible, but which, if any, was the real heir to the French throne? The Lost King of France is a moving and dramatic tale that interweaves a pivotal moment in France's history with a compelling detective story that involves pretenders to the crown, royalist plots and palace intrigue, bizarre legal battles, and modern science. The quest for the truth continued into the twenty-first century, when, thanks to DNA testing, the strange odyssey of a stolen heart found within the royal tombs brought an exciting conclusion to the two-hundred-year-old mystery of the lost king of France.

It was a mention in the New Testament by Jude that alerted David Humphries to the existence of The Lost Book of Enoch, one of the greatest examples of early Hebraic literature and part of the canon, widely known by early Christians, until the fourth century, when it was banned by the church authorities and virtually disappeared. Enoch, father of Methuselah and of the seventh generation from Adam, walked with the Archangels who took him up to heaven and revealed to him the secrets of the universe and the future of mankind. He wrote down all he saw and learned for the benefit of his son and future generations. This is the background to the marvellous Apocalyptic vision which bears his name, composed in Aramaic and Hebrew verse between 200bc and 100ad by scholars who regarded themselves as the heirs to the prophets. For 1600 years, the book was lost; then, at the end of the 19th century, an Ethiopic manuscript was discovered. This book is based on scholarly reconstruction of the greatest of the Apocalypse sagas, now available for the first time to a wide audience.
