Synopsis

The prophecy in Revelation declares that a quarter of the world must die and now a shadowy organization has the ability to fulfill these words. Can one woman stop the abomination before it's too late?

ISRAEL. A victim of Jerusalem Syndrome jumps to his death from the top of the Western Wall, his body smashed on the ancient stones. Another disembowels himself under the scrawled figure of the Pale Horse of the Apocalypse with the chilling words, "God told me to do it."

Dr Morgan Sierra, specialist in psychology of religion, travels to Israel to investigate the deaths and becomes embroiled in an international conspiracy that will use cutting-edge technology to carry an ancient curse to mankind.

She joins agent Jake Timber at ARKANE, a secret government agency investigating the supernatural and together they hunt down the Devil's Bible, pursued all the way by the evil forces of Thanatos.

From the catacombs of Paris to the skeletal ossuaries of Sicily and the Czech Republic, Morgan and Jake must find the Devil's Bible and stop the curse being released into the world before one in four are destroyed in the coming holocaust. Because in just seven days, the final curse will be spoken and the prophecy will be fulfilled.

Praise for CRYPT OF BONE

"a thrilling mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat all day waiting for the end. With a mix of historical facts and fiction, the characters are caught up in a good vs evil ride through Revelation and the end times."

"Prophecy is a gripping tale, plunging the reader into a race against a shadowy organization and its doomsday plot. Death lurks around every corner as Morgan Sierra and her partner Jake explore ancient ossuaries and dark catacombs in search of a sinister and deadly artifact. Mystery and adventure that is sure to please readers who love a good religious thriller."

"Like Dan Brown, Penn weaves information about religious art, icons and history with modern-day fears. The result is a fast paced read, one that kept me up past my bedtime because I wanted to know what happens next."

"The action moves swiftly but the suspense never wanes, as Penn uses her vast knowledge to inform and educate the reader in a seamless unfolding of this fast-moving tale. Exotic locations and supernatural artifacts add to the adventure. I'm already in line for the next one!"

"I love learning as I read, and this book did not disappoint me. Through it, I learned about the God Helmet, The Devil's Bible, the ossuaries, and various art and architecture. Penn seamlessly interlaces the facts with the story, creating a wonderfully vibrant and compelling story."

"The final showdown between Morgan and the forces of evil will stay with you long after you have finished this compelling, page-turning thriller."

Penn has done is once more, pulling off a fantastic follow-up to Pentecost. The wonderful kick-ass Morgan Sierra is back in a novel that combines suspense and action with terrifying horrific events and intriguing theological and theoretical discussions. This book has everything and definitely makes me eager to keep reading the Arkane series. Brilliant!

J. F. Penn is quickly becoming a favorite. This is a thrilling, page turner, that is impossible to put down. The characters come to life and do not fail to impress. This story that is historically based has twists and turns that keep the reader engaged and wanting more. Be sure to get the third book in the series, it is well worth the wait.
