Terry Brennan in his new book “The Sacred Cipher book coverThe Sacred Cipher” Book One in The Jerusalem Prophecies series published by Kregel Publications gives us another thriller with Tom Bohannon. History’s Greatest Secret Could Be Tomorrow’s Greatest Threat

From the back cover:  A secret room has been discovered in the chapel of the Bowery Mission. And what’s hidden inside could change the world as we know it.

When New Yorker Tom Bohannon uncovers an ancient cipher containing a dead language that has been lost in the sands of time, he doesn’t fully comprehend the danger that’s about to unfold. Though Tom and his team of ragtag scientists and historians want to decode the ancient text, there are others who don’t want the cipher revealed. And they are prepared to kill to keep it hidden.

From a market in 19th century Alexandria to an apartment in present-day New York to the tunnels beneath Jerusalem, the secret of the cipher has spanned the globe–and threatened the lives of everyone in its path. Will Tom be next?

Prophecy, intrigue, and terrorism saturate “The Sacred Cipher“.  The Cipher has been found again and a small group of men are working at trying to decipher it. However there is a group that is devoted to making sure that this never happens and sets about to eliminate them.  Tom, Doc, Joe and Sammy are not ex-CIA or Navy SEALS or anything like that, they are simply middle-aged men who have discovered something significant and want to know what it is. The Cipher takes them to Jerusalem and they work their way under The Temple Mount to find the answer. There, in addition to the original group that wants them dead, are the terrorists that want them dead and the Israelis that want them stopped because they think our group are terrorists. And the action hasn’t even begun. “The Sacred Cipher” 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 am looking forward to the next book in the series!
