The Brotherhood Conspiracy
by Terry Brennan
Fiction / Christian / Suspense
Tom Bohannon's discovery of an ancient scroll led him on an international adventure and through mysteries of faith and politics, ending in a place not even he could imagine: the Third Temple of God hidden under Temple Mount in Jerusalem. But soon after his remarkable discovery, the future of the world changed again. Tom watched as a chasm tore apart Temple Mount, as new rivers swept through the Kidron Valley and into the streets of Old Jerusalem, their discovery swallowed by an earthquake, crushed under tons of stone and debris. A biblical prophecy realized. The final days were upon them.
Wondering how to recover from such a momentous find and such horrendous destruction, Tom's adventures are not over. No one knows how much time is left in these last days--a year? A hundred years? A thousand? Plagued by murderous dreams, Tom fears members of the Prophet Guard--killers who wear the Coptic cross with a lightning bolt slashing through it--are back and looking for him. But they are not the only threat to Tom and his team. Forces behind the Arab Spring have sinister plans. And underestimating their determination would be a fatal mistake.
The same fast-paced, page-turning prose that readers loved in The Sacred Cipher is back in Terry Brennan's eagerly awaited sequel, The Brotherhood Conspiracy. ~ Publisher's Description

Biblical prophesies coming true....
How do regular people seamlessly blend in with secret agents and societies wanting them dead? By trusting that the True God has called them and will direct their footsteps to accomplish His plan.
From the streets of New York City to Jerusalem, this action-packed mystery is truly a global read. As the characters follow the clues presented and garnered, the readers are drawn into the unfolding pages of the Biblical last days.
I always get concerned when the opening pages of a new book includes a descriptive list of the main characters in the novel. True to other books, I found myself having to flip back to confirm who is who in the story and their locales. Numerous times I had to reread sections to clarify the who and where.
Although this was tedious at times, I enjoyed The Brotherhood Conspiracy. Terry Brennan has created a riveting, thought provoking story. Weaving biblical history with the unrest in the Middle East and Jerusalem, this story could easily be a 'front-page news' current event.
The Brotherhood Conspiracy continues a storyline which began in The Sacred Cipher but you do not need to begin with book 1. Yet, it probably would have helped me to understand the characters and each of their parts in the unfolding drama more clearly. I had placed Terry Brennan's The Sacred Cipher on my wish list to read even before picking up The Brotherhood Conspiracy. I look forward to reading the beginning of this series!
