An archeological team makes an unprecedented discovery while working on site in a remote part of Zimbabwe, Africa – Pterodactyl and human remains found together. Evidence leads back to an ancient race of super humans that pre-date legendary Noah’s flood – the Nephilim, a race of people born of the union between humans and ‘gods’ that led to the cataclysmic destruction of the early world.
And the Beat Goes On is the story of Dr. Mark Graham, world renowned archeologist, who is now faced with the dilemma of presenting these controversial findings to the world. Not only does the discovery rock Mark’s own beliefs about the origins of the universe, but he must grapple with his own credibility as a scientist. Is he willing to sacrifice it all in order to present the truth? And just how far will his opposition go to keep him from doing so? He soon finds himself in a dangerous web of cover up and conspiracy that leads to arrest, kidnapping, and ultimately murder.
Mark’s journey of discovery takes him from Africa to North America and back again. During his search he unexpectedly discovers more about himself than he had bargained for. He is introduced to his biological mother, the woman who abandoned him as an infant, and the siblings he had never met. He also falls unexpectedly in love with the girl next door. During it all, he learns about betrayal and trust and discovers who his true friends really are.
And the Beat Goes On is a sequel to another novel, Play It Again, the story of Mark’s parents, Russ and Deanie Graham. However, the novel stands quite firmly on its own two feet.
