End of Days (Con Law II) by Mark Gimenez

Fifty ATF agents raid a remote compound outside Waco, Texas, at dawn to execute search and arrest warrants. The search warrant identifies two .50-caliber Browning Machine Guns; the arrest warrant names Jesus Christ. The ATF agents don't make it to the front doors.

Ninety miles south in Austin, Professor John Bookman reads a letter from an old woman whose daughter took her two young girls to live in a religious cult six years before. Her daughter wrote that the End of Days is near. She fears they might drink the Kool-Aid. She begs Book to save her granddaughters. The cult inhabits a massive compound called the Garden of Eden outside Waco.

Book and his intern travel to the compound intent on bringing the girls out peaceably, only to find the Feds there first--and to learn that peace is not an option.

Did not like this one but loved all his other books. This one was too preachy and not biblically correct in some parts. The last half was hard to read it was so preachy.

I had high epectations for this book since ALL of the author's books up to this point were superb - 5 star books! I often wished he were more prolific. This book however, departs from his usual style. It is weird and offensive; a waste of time and money.

Gimenez drew from a core group of characters in a familiar setting--UT Law School, Austin; Con Law Prof John Bookman, his new intern, his alzheimer's afflicted Mother & her new caregiver. The story quickly escalates as Bookman sets out to do what he does--in response to a letter, he sets out to find & return two granddaughters to the embrace of their loving grandmother. The rescue of the girls from an extreme religious cult in Waco took more than 500 pages--& it was worth it!

I have read most of Gimenez's books and enjoyed them all. Not this one. Would have been good without so much repetition and ranting! Just too overdone! I have read and enjoyed most of Gimemez's books. Not this one too much repetition and ranting. Way overdone!

Loved it! End of Days was riveting, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. John Bookman and the laughably believable characters were great. JC made a great case for the second coming. Veronica was a book in herself. Can't wait to see what is next.

Don't know if I should cry or laugh. Wonderful writer. This book should be made into a film. But then all his books are outstanding.

I have never read a book with a better grasp of current events. Everyone who cares about this United States should study this book.

Enjoyed reading this......different from other Mark Gimenez novels I've read. A bit slow in getting going, but well worth the pace. Law professor John Goodman once again a champion for justice-absolute calm during a calamity of unimaginably giant proportions. Plenty of humor, biblical history, adventure and action all rolled up into a thrilling novel well worth reading.

Makes you reevaluate everything you thought you knew. Don't think Trump will like it, but it makes you think
