From the Back Cover
Still grieving from the death of his wife, Ben Hope returns to Oxford to resume the Theology studies he had given up years before but is quickly recruited to look for a missing young female biblical archaeologist from America. He quickly discovers that Zoe claimed to have uncovered archaeological evidence that proves conclusively that John the Apostle was not the author of the Book of Revelation and is using this knowledge to blackmail a wealthy apocalyptic American preacher. However, unbeknownst to Zoe, her actions may have triggered a chain reaction that could lead to global mass destruction from a shadowy figure hell bent on starting a political crisis that will lead to the fabled 'Tribulation' from the Book of Revelation.
The story climaxes with a breathless chase through the streets of Jerusalem as Ben races to catch a desperate bomber intent on detonating a massive explosive device at the sacred Muslim site of the Dome of the Rock - an event that could bring true the apocalyptic forecast of the Bible and hurl the world towards Armageddon.
