Do certain texts have the power to smite? (The ancient Egyptian kind.)

Words were things

To the ancient Egyptians, written words/hieroglyphs carved in stone or written on papyrus were actual things. Objects of power.

When used by the priests in ritual cursing (execration texts) as a State weapon, they were believed to have the power to weaken, bring enemies to their knees and destroy them.  

What if a set of fearsome execration texts from the ancient past were reactivated today in an act of esoteric warfare against another nation?

This is the story of THE SMITING TEXTS, an adventure mystery thriller that begins a 7 book series (Amazon Kindle). Meet renegade Egyptologist and investigator Anson Hunter as he is recruited to help US Intelligence.
