Jeremiah the Terrorist Prophet has developed a genetically engineered, virulent variation of the flu virus, and found the perfect delivery vehicle-the hundreds of millions of migratory birds that circle the globe each year. His followers, including dissident military units and sympathizers from all around the world, have received a vaccine and stand ready to reestablish Eden after the "earthly garden" is weeded. God ordained the apocalypse in his Revelation to Jeremiah. The Prophet tries to recruit his two adult sons to the effort, but they have strong ties to the terrorist's archenemies, Steve Wallace and Laura Delaney. The action is fast and furious in this conclusion to the Jeremiah Trilogy, a ripped-from-the-headlines look at all aspects of terrorism in our time.

In 2018 China, Jeremiah the Prophet receives a heart transplant that save his life. The organ donor is ten years old James, a boy in perfect health who was cloned from the Prophet so his organs can be harvested for Jeremiah¿s use.. The lad is given an artificial heart in case Jeremiah needs future organs. The time for the choosing of Jeremiah¿s successor is now at hand. There are two candidates, his about to be eighteen-year old sons sired with different mothers. Jeremiah plans to test both of them to determine who is worthy of replacing him. David has lived his entire life with Jeremiah, but he is behaving like a rebellious American teen instead of the son of the Prophet. The other candidate is David¿s half brother Thomas raised by Jeremiah¿s enemies Steve and Laura Delaney-Wallace. Jeremiah sets the apocalyptic contest in motion when he sends a packet to Thomas containing information about the lad¿s background previously unknown to the teen. The third tale in Michael A. Smith¿s modern day theological thriller is an exciting conclusion to a fast-paced trilogy. THE INHERITORS is entertaining and fast-paced. Though the heroes and villains may have aged, they continue their global rivalry that sets the stage for the successor to be anointed. The tale is exhilarating and the charcaters seem more complete than in the previous two novels. Still, Mr. Smith opens the door to a new novel starring the next generation prophet. This will please thriller fans but leave other readers asking if this series will one day become the literary equivalent of Halloween 20? Harriet Klausner
