The secret of the manuscript is only the beginning…The truth could cost her life.
Though her speciality is Roman collections at the British Museum in London, history expert turned government agent Calla Cress finds herself thrown into a bizarre international case. A code is written in an unbreakable script on an ancient manuscript whose origin is as debatable as the origin of life. Could its decryption lead to a global cyber war?
When the highly guarded document goes missing from a Berlin museum and ends up in her personal belongings with a long-hidden secret concerning her past, Calla is backed into a corner.
Forced on a run halfway across the world, Calla is pursued from the underground scene of espionage intelligence into a desperate hunt for truth and survival. Soon she discovers that she's made of tougher stuff than she ever imagined. Her only allies are few but resourceful.
There’s: Nash Shields, a handsome yet mysterious National Security Agency (NSA) intelligence analyst. Jack Kleve, a witty technology entrepreneur.
The trio is thrown into a sophisticated conspiracy spanning continents and dating back several centuries. The secret of the manuscript is only the beginning . . . The truth could cost them their lives.
THE DECRYPTER: SECRET OF THE LOST MANUSCRIPT (Previously published as The Deveron Manuscript) is a fast-paced, provocative, action-adventure techno thriller seeped in history that poses a question - what if the future of cyber technology had more to do with the past?

BOOK 2 – THE DECRYPTR AND THE MIND HACKER:
Rose never set out to be a writer. She set out to be a communicator with whatever landed in her hands. But soon the pen became her best friend. Rose writes suspense and intelligence thrillers where technology and espionage meet history in pulse-racing action-adventure. She dips into the mysteries of our world, the fascination of technology breakthroughs, the secrets of history and global intelligence to deliver thrillers that weave suspense, conspiracy with a dash of romantic thrill.
Raised a diplomat's daughter, she lives in London and likes to take her characters to where she's journeyed. She earned International Business and Economics degrees in Paris and as a globe trotter, her thrillers span cities and continents where she has lived or travelled: Berlin, Baghdad, Paris, Venice, Rome, Tokyo, Amsterdam, New Delhi, Boston, St Louis, Cologne, Chicago, London, Seville, Kampala, Lisbon, Colorado, Monaco, The Himalayas, Copenhagen, Cairo, Cyprus, Greece, Malta, Salzburg, Budapest and more.
Rose's writing approach is to hit hard with a good dose of tension and humor. Her characters zip in and out of intelligence and government agencies, grapple with corporate conspiracies, dodge enemies in world heritage sites, navigate through technology markets and always land in deep trouble.
When not tapping away on a smart phone writing app, Rose is usually found in the British Library scrutinizing the Magna Carta, trolling Churchill's War Rooms or sampling a new tech gadget. Most times she's in deep conversations with ex-military and secret service intelligence officers, Foreign Service staff or engrossed in a TED talk with a box of popcorn. Hm... she might just learn something that'll be useful.
