by James McPike Genre: Thriller
Publisher: Paper Gold Publishing Publication Date: December 11, 2019
After a mass murder in Israel, a renowned investigator from the Ministry—Vince Ramsey—is called in. Some experts at the scene believe only something supernatural could be responsible for such an atrocity. Ramsey finds an artifact which leads him to the Antiquities Authority. There, he teams up with historical specialist April Fulton. Together they learn the artifact is linked to an ancient secret society founded by a famous Greek philosopher. Only it's much more sinister than they could have ever imagined. Being hunted down at every turn of their journey by ruthless assassins, they race to discover the truth—and finally encounter the diabolical villain controlling a powerful force only spoken about in the Book of Revelation.
"A riveting thriller exploring the end of the world..."
McPike's 6th action/adventure blockbuster TREASURE FEVER: The Hunt for El Dorado will be released in 2020.
His last adventure SHIPWRECK ISLAND was based on a real 19th century New Zealand shipwreck that mysteriously crashed and went missing--along with its legendary gold cargo.
