Ishmael covenant


Terry Brennan








320 pages


If you like political intrigue as well as prophetic events, Ishmael Covenant is for you. Well written and well researched it is a complicated book which needs your entire attention while reading to keep up with the events and characters. It does contain a cast of characters in the beginning of the book which helps a lot.

DSS agent Brian Mullaney is the main character, feeling banished in his new position in Israel. He has been assigned to guard Atticus Cleveland, the US ambassador and a small but lethal box containing a prophecy about the fate of the world. The ambassador’s life as well as that of his daughter are threatened by those who would attempt to wrest this box and its contents from them before it is given to the rabbi who will hopefully know exactly what to do with it.

This fast paced thriller has a very strong spiritual message, both Christian and Jewish.  It is the first in a series entitled, Empires of Armageddon.
