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)

    Terry Brennan in his new book "The Brotherhood Conspiracy&q

    Terry Brennan in his new book "The Brotherhood Conspiracy" Book Two in The Sacred Cipher series published by Kregel Publications gives us another thriller with Tom Bohannon.




    From the back cover: A secret as old as the prophets lies hidden in an ancient code. That code may uncover an artifact as mysterious, and dangerous, as The Lost Ark.
    Jerusalem's Temple Mount has been obliterated. The Dome of the Rock and the most astounding archaeological find in two thousand years are engulfed in a smoking crater.




    While Israel schemes for permanent control of the Temple Mount by resurrecting a structure as sacred as the Temple and as old as the Exodus, a legendary Islamic iman steps from the shadows of history to wrest leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood and forge Islamic unity.




    American Tom Bohannon and his loose-knit cadre of archaeologists and historians race against time to decode new clues from eleventh-century artifacts and uncover a global conspiracy that could trigger the annihilation of the Middle East.




    One step ahead of an ancient gang of assassins, and one step behind the deadline for impending disaster, the team encounters the death of friends and colleagues and maneuvers through a maze of political treachery, religious fanaticism and traitorous machinations-to the very brink of judgement orchestrated by a force greater than they could ever have imagined.




    Prophecy, intrigue, and terrorism saturate "The Brotherhood Conspiracy". The Sacred Cipher still has messages left within it and Bohannon and his team are in deadly danger as they try to decipher the new message and fulfill what it reveals. All the while trying to escape the groups that are out to destroy them. "The Brotherhood Conspiracy" is almost a non-stop action thriller. Mr. Brennan has put in so many twists and turns in his story that it would make a roller coaster envious. Tom, Doc, Joe and Sammy are wonderful characters that we care about, want to see escape the danger that they find themselves in and want them to succeed. Terry Brennan has given us a unique thriller that will keep you on the edge of your chair as you read and flip pages as fast as possible. I recommend this book highly and look forward to the next book in the series!

    I received a copy of THE BROTHERHOOD CONSPIRACY by Terry Brennan

    I received a copy of THE BROTHERHOOD CONSPIRACY by Terry Brennan from Kregel Publications. This book blew me away. I want to say it did it literally, with me flailing my arms and flopping on the floor, but alas, I stayed curled up on the couch with my cup of tea and a blanket over my knees. The book did, however, keep me riveted to the pages, and many times breathless as I read on to see what happened next.

    Current events mingle with history. I am, as always, a sucker for history. I eat it up like chocolate. This bit of history mainly involves Jerusalem’s Temple Mount. I wasn’t that familiar with the references in the Bible, so I read back through them to refresh my memory. I should note that along with history, the author added archeologists, danger, and conspiracy.

    Even my dad, who rarely reads, enjoyed THE BROTHERHOOD CONSPIRACY. He has a thing for current event intrigue. There is a lot in this book to appeal to a wide audience. I recommend it for anyone looking for a good read. If you’re like me, you’ll be running to Google and history friends to look into more about the facts mentioned within the chapters.

    I did not have the opportunity to read The Sacred Cipher which is the forerunner of The Brotherhood Conspiracy by Terry Brennan. I wish I had because getting "into" the story of The Brotherhood Conspiracy would have been much easier to understand. The plethora, somewhat overwhelming at times, of characters was disconcerting to this reader.

    The main character, Tom Bohannon, has previously discovered a Third Temple of God for the Israelites and it was hidden under the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. He and others on his original discovery team are again drawn into the world of international politics and the clash of and warring struggle between religious factions in the Jerusalem area and on international scene.

    Tom's team delves into the most minute thread of evidence that would lead them to more discoveries involving the Temple Mount, they encounter danger from the Israelites, Muslim, and others intent on preventing more discoveries. It is intriguing to see how national and religious history, political interests from several nations, and the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim religious factions are layered one upon the other in the plots and twists of the story.

    The Brotherhood Conspiracy can be read as a stand-alone book, but I highly recommend reading The Sacred Cipher first if able. The Brotherhood Conspiracy is highly enjoyable and a treat to read.

    DISCLOSURE: I was provided a complimentary copy by Kregel Publications in exchange for my honest review. No compensation was received. Opinions expressed are solely my own.
