This is book 2 of the Empires of Armegedon Series. The book takes place in Jerusalem and the Middle East. Brian Mullaney, Security Officer is called on to a mission after a synagogue in Jerusalem is attacked by an explosion and an empire that is out to get him. Brian sets out to do his job and it becomes very difficult for him to stay with his last mission without giving up. He is under pressure to do what his faith is telling him to do and fighting evil along the way. Can he survive and be able to go home to his wife? What does this mission mean for world peace? How can he stand the tests of his faith and win justice?
I would recommend this book to those that want a drama that doesn't stop and the suspense of living in today's world. This is book 2 but you can read as a stand alone without any difficulties. This is one of those books that don't stop with the twist and turns and keeps you reading. The bad part is you get to the end and you want the next one to continue reading.......
About the book:
How much can Brian Mullaney risk to serve God and save lives--without losing his own?
DSS Regional Security Officer Brian Mullaney has been tasked with an incredibly dangerous mission. When a synagogue in Jerusalem is destroyed by an explosion, burying the second key prophecy Mullaney is hunting--and the deadly box that protects it--the answers he desperately needs are also crushed. How can he discover the meaning of the centuries-old prophecy now? Why are he and the ambassador he’s assigned to protect being targeted? And is there any way this lone man can thwart a nuclear arms race between three ascendant empires of the past?
An otherworldly servant of evil known only as the Turk is maneuvering all three nations into an intricate dance designed to undermine prophecy about the end times. And he won’t let Mullaney or anyone else get in his way.
Wounded in a bloody shoot-out, pressured by his wife to come home, and mourning the death of his best friend, Mullaney doesn’t need a powerful enemy. Who is he to save the Ishmael Covenant, the treaty promising peace in the Middle East? Despite angelic intervention, Mullaney wants nothing to do with his final assignment. But without him, evil will win the ultimate struggle . . . and humankind will have no hope left.
