The story weaves Nostradamus's quatrains into a modern day story of international intrigue, involving a prophetic man of evil developing the next generation of weapons technology with the use of diamonds. As a writer I found the story interesting and compelling.
This is a lousy book, poorly conceived and executed. A real mishmash with Middle Eastern terrorists, diamonds, and a weapon of mass destruction, all loosely tied to a prophecy made by Nostradamus. There's not a thing in the story that is even remotely believable or suspenseful (and this is supposed to be a thriller) not the characters, not the dialogue, not the plot. And the writing is just plain awful. The author must have proofread the manuscript with a blindfold on, because there's something wrong on every page. My five-year-old daughter writes better. This book should never have been published.
