Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The second book in the electrifying thriller series that “will excite fans of Dan Brown, James Rollins, and Robert Ludlum” (Booklist).

Still reeling from a devastating personal loss, ex-SAS operative and hero-for-hire Ben Hope has decided to put down his gun for good and return to the theology studies he had abandoned years ago. But when his professor and friend asks him to help find his missing daughter, archeologist Zoe Bradbury, Ben reluctantly agrees to pick up his gun once more and travel to Greece to see if Zoe has been kidnapped. Ben has no idea he’s just embarked on the most dangerous mission of his life. 

     As Ben investigates, he realizes that Zoe’s most recent archeological discovery, an artifact related to the Book of Revelation, is at the heart of her disappearance. What is the ancient secret that Zoe uncovered? And just who is willing to do anything to protect it? The investigation leads Ben from the islands of Greece to the tree-lined streets of Savannah and the holy city of Jerusalem, and he soon discovers that it’s not just Zoe’s life on the line, but those of millions, threatened by a fundamentalist plot to gain ultimate power.

Synopsis:

WHAT DOES ZOË BRADBURY KNOW?

At first, only the parents of the lovely archaeologist are concerned. They just want to get in touch with the unpredictable party girl. In fact, Zoë has been kidnapped by a trained team and is being brutally interrogated. The problem: Zoë doesn’t have the answer.

When ex-SAS operative Ben Hope is asked by old friends to find their missing daughter, he tries to stay minimally involved. But when the search erupts into violence, Ben realizes that once again it’s all up to him. While Zoë’s sudden influx of cash right before her disappearance may be related to her recent discovery of an ancient artifact connected to the book of Revelation, the only hard evidence leads from the Greek islands to Savannah, Georgia, then on to Israel and Jerusalem. Gradually, Ben realizes that it’s not just Zoë’s life on the line, but the lives of millions.

However, the shadowy group who are hell-bent on making an end-of-days attack for political gain have made one huge mistake. Because in Ben Hope they are facing the ultimate reckoning. . . .

A DEADLY CONSPIRACY. AN ANCIENT PROPHECY. A RACE TO STOP AN ATTACK OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.
