Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This is a sequel to The Sacred Cipher but can stand alone as an international mystery thriller with a rapid-fire plot that alternates between the Middle East and Washington and a few points between. When Tom Bohannon discovers a Third Temple of God hidden under the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, he finds himself caught between faith and politics. Historical figures and fictional ancient characters enter the complex plot. The crux of the story centers on the true-to-life struggle for the Temple Mount, a meaningful site in Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. A rabbi in the story says, “I believe... and my Muslim friend has come to accept the possibility... that God will keep destroying the inanimate temples of men because now they are false temples. He no longer lives there nor will he ever allow his Spirit to be confined there.” Readers who enjoy the creative juxtaposition of history, religion, and geopolitics will find in Brennan’s work a feast for the senses. For other readers, however, a cast of three dozen characters packs the book with intrigue that teeters on the edge of overdose. Agent: WordServe Literary Agency. (June)
Mike Dellosso
“Terry Brennan meticulously crafts stories of intrigue and action. His ability to weave archaeological and historical detail into a riveting plotline is simply amazing. Both The Sacred Cipher and The Brotherhood Conspiracy could step off the front page of any newspaper tomorrow. You’ll find them captivating!”
David E. Stevens
“The Brotherhood Conspiracy weaves a beautifully intricate web of intrigue and suspense. Painstakingly researched with powerful characters, it takes the reader on an exciting and thought-provoking adventure. Brennan brilliantly meshes an internal struggle of faith with an epic story about a world on the brink.”
