HASH(0x9ce5faa4) out of 5 stars Gripping Adventure--Unique Premise April 23 2012
By Ken Winters - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Tracy Krauss has written a winner! This unique novel revolves around honesty, or lack thereof, on an archaeological expedition, and then spins into a gripping and unpredictable adventure, with some romance gone wrong along the way. I really enjoyed this book. The geographical location changes a number of times, but the story continued to carry me along from one surprise (sometimes pleasant- sometimes a shock) to the next. Fun and edgy adventure with a moving spiritual journey.

HASH(0x9d2926a8) out of 5 stars And The Beat Goes On Oct. 6 2010
By Jan Thompson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Here is the back cover blurb:

Canadian born archeologist Mark Graham unearths a remarkable discovery while at a dig in the mountains of Zimbabwe - pterodactyl remains and giant human bones buried together. Speculation leads to the possible existence of a mythical race known as `Nephilim', a pre-flood people alleged to have descended from both gods and men.

But skepticism and sabotage delay Mark and his team as the dig site is compromised, putting their discovery - as well as his very life - in grave danger. Deceived and framed by trusted friends and colleagues, Mark struggles to safeguard his findings and protect his reputation in order to unearth the mystery behind the Nephilim.

As an archeologist, Mark Graham has spent his professional life trying to make what he learned growing up in a Christian family "jive" with what he knows as a scientist. On this latest dig, evidence is being discovered that just might bring him back to the truth.

The romance aspect of this book is a little edgy. Mark and Laura, a fellow archeologist, spend some their off time "together". Nothing too descriptive, thank you Tracy! When Mark goes back home to his parents for a visit, he sees an old family friend who has suddenly "grown up". There is an attraction there but that is all I'm going to say. Read the book to find out what happens!

Mark has many colleagues that have their own agendas. Who can he trust? Who is really his friend? Answers you will only get when you read this awesome book! Tracy has given us very defined characters and a well developed plot. I was surprised several times throughout the book trying to guess who was doing what. That is the kind of stories I love. The type that keep you guessing, at least most of the way through! If you can figure it out in the first two chapters, why finish it right?

I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good romantic suspense.

HASH(0x9cc6f198) out of 5 stars As The Beat Goes On Sept. 12 2010
By Edna Tollison - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As I opened the book I usually read the Prologue and this one start with referring to Genesis 6:5 KJV in the Bible. This refers to where the angles came down from Heaven and went into the women of the earth and they bore giants.

As the book begins there is an archeological team headed by Mark Graham and as his assistance Laura Sawchuk along with some more members. They had found an underground burring site beneath an old tomb. They had already found some bones and something that look like large chicken bones with large wings.

They unearthed a few of the tombs but there in the center surrounded by the smaller tombs was the main one that they really wanted to get into. As they carefully moved the old silt they got the door open and there was this large casket and there is where they found the "PRIZE". As they were trying to get this out, they had a cave in and had to leave it in order to get out themselves. It was going to take a couple of weeks before the crew could get back inside, so in the meantime Mark's grandfather had passed away so he went home to Canada. When he returned they were soon back into the caves. Things were missing that they could not understand, some of the artifacts and some files from the computer. They got the "PRIZE" out and loaded onto a truck just as the African government came up and arrested Mark. No one knew why as they had permits for the dig and they were sending things out to New Mexico to a lab.

Meanwhile the dig was stopped and the crew and Mark was finally home. Things went from bad to worse as Mark lost his job and was sabotaged by two of his crew members. He was not getting any credit for all the work he had done. Will this dig ever prove that the pterodactyl and humans were living at the same time. Will this dig prove the Bible is correct or will the scientists still not believe what the Bible says?

I had better stop here before I tell the plot of the story and we want everyone to buy a copy of this beautiful book and read for yourselves.

This book was sent to me by the author Tracy L. Krauss for me to review.

HASH(0x9d58a570) out of 5 stars And the Beat Goes On Aug. 12 2010
By Martha A. Cheves - Published on
Format: Hardcover
His crew had been meticulously digging under the site of an ancient temple - a sacred site stringently protected by the government of Zimbabwe. The temple site itself had been unearthed decades before, but legend had led to speculation that an even older civilization had once used the spot. Mark had been honored when asked to assemble a team of specialists to investigate the possibilities without compromising the original excavations. It was painstaking work. But already, after only five months, the team was rewarded with signs that the legends were indeed rooted in fact. Under the temple mount they had discovered an even more ancient burial ground with an intricate system of tombs that seemed oddly more technologically advanced than the layer of simple graves directly above it. This wasn't entirely unexpected; history often bespoke of a more barbarous people supplanting a superior civilization. But there was more... so much more. There was a sense that they were on the verge of something big - monumental, even.'

Dr. Mark Graham and his team of archaeologists have made a discovery that would re-write history as we know it today. Not only would they be able to prove that earth was younger than historians believe but they would also be able to prove that prehistoric creatures and man did exist together, creating a large gap in the theory of evolution.

Raised in a Christian family, Mark believes in the Bible, but due to his scientific mind, he has doubts regarding how the earth and man actually evolved. With the finding of a tomb holding a human giant as well as the wing bones of a pterodactyl, his belief and theory start to dissolve. With the sediment found around the grave, there are even signs of a possible flood taking place many years before. And if the calculations are correct, this flood was none other than the great flood that covered the whole earth during the days of Noah. But, there are those who will stop at nothing to prevent these finds from being shared as well as those who will stop at nothing to make sure they are shared. So, as Mark's scientific mind begins to change and grow with new ideas, so do the problems preventing him from going public, leaving him in a position of not trusting anyone, including his own team. And as his faith in God grows, the problems get worse.

As I read And the Beat Goes On, I became aware of how scientists can, and I'm sure have, played down the Bible's teaching of the creation of earth, man and all of God's creatures. I take the Bible as my history book. I can also see how a find such as the one talked about in this book would stir up some real problems. It would actually require that history and science books be rewritten. Could it be possible that finds such as this really have been found? Have they been withheld from the public?

HASH(0x9cd08e10) out of 5 stars Great Book! March 14 2012
By MilsP - Published on
Format: Paperback
Mark Graham is a Canadian archeologist and is currently working on a dig in Zimbabwe. Little does he (or his colleagues for that matter) know that he is about to discover something that will change is life forever!

Along with the bones of a pterodactyl Mark and his team find gigantic human bones that are believed to be Nephilim an ancient mythical race that was thought to be half god and half man. Mark soon realizes that this discovery not only threatens his career and reputation as an archeologist but also his very life.

There is plenty of suspense, thrills and even some romance as Mark fights for his life and his reputation.
I enjoyed this book very much, it was well written with well developed characters that were relatable. Although many would think this is a farfetched concept, the author has done a great job writing it in a way that it all made sense and was believable. Great Book!
