Book Review - The Prophecy by John Kilgallon
The Prophecy by John Kilgallon
A stolen manuscript. New York Author Sam Tynnan is violently assaulted and his new thriller wiped from his computer. Then world events begin to mirror those in his unpublished book - "An Ancient Prediction". Provence Nostradamus devotee Jean-Pierre comes across an undiscovered prophecy which he suspects holds the key to catastrophic global events. A Terrifying Race Against Time - London MI5 spook, Adel Al-Shaffir, faces a new terrorist threat - one with a secret blueprint for their course of destruction. Could Sam's book hold the key to the terrorism that has seized the world? Is the prophecy coming true? Adel needs to get Sam to trust him - but time is running out for them all.
So when I received this novel and began to read it I found it was nothing like I expected, I was thrown into a fast paced thrilling read and couldn't put it down until it was complete. Maybe because this is not my normal genre or maybe it was because I needed a change but whatever it was I loved it. It was so nice to see things from another point of view when it comes to terrorism and it was from an Islamic point rather then a western point of view...a view that had me intrigued thoroughly throughout.
John Kilgallon writes with an exceptional skill, he has been compared to many writers who I would say have outstanding talent and I can do nothing but agree with all those that said he was alike Sam Bourne ,Frederick Forsyth and Harlan Coben. Truly Outstanding and not only is his writing perfect but his characters and research where outstanding beyond belief too. John certainly has entered my reading life with a bang with this thrilling novel. One I would certainly recommend.
