I have never been disappointed to read a book authored or co-authored by Alton Gansky. Once again I was pulled into the book from the first chapter and turning pages to see what happens next. I so admire the Christian values of Lisa, a writer for a Christian publication, one of the main characters in this book.
I was not aware or the Mayan Apocalypse but I sure know what it is now. I think I'll hang on to this book and read it again in December 2012.
I wasn't sure how I would like this book based on the subject matter, but I was very curious so I had to give it a try. Turns out, I like it. There is a great storyline that runs the book with murder, mystery and intrigue as we follow Andrew Morgan, a man who has everything but has lost what is most important to him and gets pulled into the whole world ending in 2012 by a man claiming to be the last Mayan priest. Lisa Campbell is a reporter for an on-line Christian newspaper that is investigating this same priest. Is it a hoax or is it real? That is the main question through the book and it definitely makes you think. I won't spoil anything, but I do have to wonder how sales of this book will be come January of 2013?
This book has it all--romance, mystery, a slowly unraveling plot, sustained suspence, murder, faith, curiosity about the end of times and the human search for significance. Once I started, it was hard to put down. This is the first book I've read by Hitchcock and/or Gansky. If others are like this one, give me more!In light of recent news in Los Angeles (cult members missing who are waiting for the end of the world), and natural disasters all around us, this fiction book is very realistic.
