Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a gripping novel that combines brilliantly imagined characters with the machinations behind this century’s greatest unexplained mysteries, Jim Hougan has created a stunning international thriller of psychology and intrigue, espionage and prophecy, hairbreadth escapes and endless suspense.

After someone he has under surveillance is literally slaughtered, CIA agent Jack Dunphy is immediately ordered to leave London and return to the U.S., where he is dumped into a tedious desk job that seems calculated to make him quit. Determined to learn why, Dunphy uses all his CIA tradecraft on the agency that has turned against him–and hears the fragments of a story that seems too wild to be true . . . providing him with damning evidence of a vast conspiracy deeply entrenched within the CIA. Embroiled in a plot far more elaborate than he ever could have imagined, with players too powerful and consequences too deadly, Dunphy must uncover the shocking truth–even if it kills him.

KINGDOM COME

Synopsis:

When a surveillance subject is slaughtered, CIA agent Jack Dunphy is ordered to leave London and return to the U.S., where he is dumped into desk duty, seemingly calculated to make him quit. Determined to learn why, Dunphy uses all of his CIA tradecraft and discovers a conspiracy so vast and old that the CIA itself is but a cover for it.

KAbbey, December 30, 2007 (view all comments by KAbbey)
CIA operative Jack Dunphy works in London laundering money for individuals who cannot afford to use the legal methods to move money. He does other assignments for the agency. Currently, he is wire tapping the phone of Professor Leo Schindolof, an expert in Jungian philosophy. When the professor is mutilated and the tap discovered, Jack is ordered home. Upon arrival, he is debriefed and assigned a tedious desk job.

Jack believes his unofficial demotion is designed to force him into resigning. He has no idea why his superiors want him to leave the agency except perhaps the link to the deceased professor. He begins some discreet checking, but his activities are noticed. Soon, attempts are made on Jackâs life. As he gets closer to uncovering the truth about an internationally powerful cartel, his chances of survival geometrically drop by the hour.


Conspiracy buffs will name the publishing date of KINGDOM COME as a national holiday. Jim Hougan answers the questions about the paranormal and extraterrestrial forces at work in today's world. The global conspiracy has religious undertones, headed by a wealthy organization that hides in plain sight. Readers will cheer on the likable lead protagonist who is an every person fighting a Quixote-like quest that has no boundaries. Though the tale is filled with many surprises, Mr. Hougan never loses sight of his main theme: the truth is right here not out there.
