A mysterious man walking the earth for millennia and a discovery we might not be ready for.
With the success of his bestseller, The Lazarus Succession, Ken Fry once again crafts a cunning and explosive historical thriller unlike any you’ve read before.
Tel Aviv, Israel. Archaeologist Joshua Agar makes a stunning discovery when on one of his excavation sites, his team unearths an ancient ossuary, untouched since the day it was buried. Evidence and analysis reveals that the contents of the find appear to be the six of the seven seals mentioned in the Bible’s Book of Revelations.
The seventh is missing.
Meanwhile, a mysterious man has been walking the earth for millennia. He waits, amassing knowledge and power, seeking to bring about the one event that would release him from his endless existence. With the discovery in Tel Aviv, his waiting might soon be over.
Joshua Agar and his team, professor Simon Rockwell and Dr. Rachel Carver, soon realise the significance of their find. An ancient society known as the Keepers awakens, and they are after the seven seals. It has been told that whosoever breaks the seven seals will have unimaginable power and control over the new world promised through the second coming of Christ.
The frantic hunt for the seventh seal begins. Through dusty caves, ancient churches, and even within the most secretive vault on earth, they search for clues to the possible resting place of the missing seal.
The archaeologists are not alone. Another ancient secret brotherhood called the Guardians have long protected the seven seals, since the time John of Patmos entrusted to them the seventh. Using their resources, they attempt to discover the identity of the Grand Keeper and impede his plans for global upheaval.
As scientists, the archaeologists perceive their discovery as a historical relic and not a religious find. But with the forces aroused by the unearthing of the artefact, they start to question if there is indeed truth in the story.
