Product Description

Product Description

     Ian Baringer may have stumbled upon the greatest discovery of all time. Or the greatest curse . . .
     As a child, Ian lost his parents in a horrific accident, seeing them give their lives to save his. He never fully recovered, burying pangs of guilt, clinging to religion's promise that someday he'd see his parents again.     
     But now his demons have resurfaced. Despite the help of Angela Weber, the brilliant psychologist who loves him, he's in the grip of an obsession. He no longer trusts in an afterlife, he must know for certain if the soul survives death.
     And incredibly, he may have found a way. A risky bid to cross death's door and return with Knowledge of the Great Beyond. Knowledge that can be verified by anyone who follows his path.
     The implications are staggering. Proof of a hereafter. Perhaps of God, Himself. Knowledge to halt wars, to end at last the ancient animosities between Faiths.
     Or perhaps a Knowledge to doom us all . . .
     Some believe death's secrets are forbidden to the living, cursed with grave consequences for Humanity. One shadowy sect is sworn to destroy all trespassers, and Ian and Angela have but one hope to survive. They must defy the gates of heaven and hell to steal a Knowledge hidden from the world since the dawn of creation . . .

     The Knowledge of Good & Evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take the ticket and enjoy the ride! 7 Sep 2011
Format:Hardcover
This second novel from Glenn Kleier is part thriller, part urban fantasy, and sees a young couple test the limits of their love for one another as well as the realms of the supernatural and paranormal.

Ian Baringer and Angela Weber are a young couple who work together as paranormal investigators for a television network on a show called `Probing the Paranormal.'

After a profound and unexpected incident Ian, a former obsessive compulsive neurotic and member of the clergy is thrown back into the turmoil of his prior existence. Angela, with a PhD in psychology, is now deeply concerned for him as he ponders the mysteries of life and death and particularly the afterlife.

This is where things get really interesting as Ian wants nothing more than to be reunited with his parents who sacrificed their lives to save his when he was a child. Both Ian and Angela are thrust into a deadly game of cat and mouse and a conspiracy that goes right to the top of the Vatican.

The character of Ian represents religion and spirituality with Angela an atheist, representing science. The novel neatly counterbalances both viewpoints to produce an intriguing mystery that involves NDE's (Near Death Experiences), the works of Bosch, Dante, Milton and Blake and a Ludlumesque chase across the globe.

As you can imagine there are plenty of twists and (no pun intended) revelations as the two are pursued by their opponents and would be assassins in their search both scientific and spiritual to find the truth and the `Ultimate Reality.'

Fans of Dan Brown will enjoy this with a plot steeped in history, mysteries to investigate, ancient secret organizations intent on suppressing knowledge and lots of breakneck action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mindful Thriller 12 Sep 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Brilliant read from start to finish. Ian Baringer used to be a priest once upon a time, but fell by the way side, found love with gorgeous Angela and should have lived happily ever after, but it isn't to be. Because of a tragic accident in childhood he aches to know more about life after death. To find out he must die periodically and come back if he is spared. The church is deeply involved in unsavoury ways, twisting truth to suit it's purpose. The author literally takes the reader to hell and back.....it isn't a journey you want to miss!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hellaciously good! 13 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Having read Glenn Kleier's first novel THE LAST DAY and loved it, I've been impatiently anticipating THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD & EVIL. It's an extraordinary book. I simply could not put it down. Like THE LAST DAY it explores the dark side of spirituality and religion and is bolstered by fascinating research (and some amazing photos). And like THE LAST DAY, the book is controversial (yes, religion is a polarizing subject!). It's the story of a man obsessed with learning the truth about "the other side." Does it really exist? And if so, what does it hold for us when we die? The man, an ex-priest, was traumatized as a boy watching his parents lose their lives to rescue him from a terrible accident. He is broken spiritually and psychologically, and seems beyond the help of the beautiful woman who is both his psychiatrist and lover. He has to know if he will ever see his parents again, as his religion has always told him. But his religion has also let him down badly and he no longer trusts its promises. He must find the truth for himself, and he discovers a diabolical way to do it. It does not lead him to the answers he expects. It takes him on a harrowing and thought-provoking journey you will not soon forget. I won't spoil the fun by revealing more. This is a terrific, fast-paced story, and at times the suspense is almost unbearable. It is one of the few books I've read where I could never second guess what was going to happen next, and I had no idea how it would end. The ending came as a complete surprise, and it totally worked. It left me reeling and with a lot to think about. If you read this, set aside some time, you will not want stop. I cannot say enough about how different and engrossing the book is. Get it, read it, enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Are NDEs real? 10 Oct 2011
Format:Hardcover
The Knowledge of Good & Evil - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat and Think With Your Taste Buds

`He stared into his empty glass, unsure where to begin or how much to reveal. He didn't want to frighten them into paralysis, but he couldn't mislead them. The sad part was, despite his best efforts to
hide and protect them, their odds of survival were next to none... Meeting their anxious eyes, he began, "I don't know if what you do is sinful or not, these experiments of yours with Death and Hell. I'm a
soldier, not a theologian, I leave the moral calls to God. But there are some who see such things as grave violations of God's Will. And unfortunately, they take it upon themselves to intervene." Ian
nodded. "The man with the tattoo was a religious extremist. Do you know who he was?" "Not who. What... I must ask your oath not to repeat what I tell you." They gave their words. "This tattoo, it's the
symbol of a very old sect. A brotherhood of militants cast off from the Church centuries ago, known as Ordo Arma Christi." Ian translated, "The Order of the Weapon of Christ." "Yes. Christ's Weapon. Ordo Arma Christi dates to medieval times. There's virtually no history of it outside the Bibliotheca Secreta -" he clarified for Angela, "-the Vatican Secret Archives. And once you hear its checkered past, you'll see why the Church keeps silent."

Dr. Angela Weber and former priest Ian Baringer make up the team for L.A.'s #1 Late-Nite Talk Show Probing the Paranormal. If there appears a mystery, they investigate and solve it.
