From the author of The Maze comes a new novel of spiritual warfare, supernatural mystery, and suspense. You won't find any zombies in this apocalyptic thriller. What you will find is a fallen death angel that seeks to jumpstart the end of the world, a cult calling themselves The Slaves of Solomon that dates back to the Roman Empire, and a doomsday contagion named Morningstar that threatens the entire planet.Edward, Henry, Franklin, Sadie, and Kelly are complete strangers. Edward is a preacher. Henry is a retired school teacher. Franklin is a millionaire software developer. Sadie is a student with a photographic memory. Kelly is a carnival psychic who preys on gullibility. On the surface none of them have any connection to each other. Yet they all wake up on an island with no memory of how they arrived there and find their only clue inside a bottle buried in the sand.
“Dear lambs. I think God is mad at us. If you don‘t believe it, just look at your own lives for proof. You have all been punished in some way or another. That is why you are valuable to me. You are here to help me understand why bad things happen to good people. You are all part of an experiment in cosmic justice. You are also here to help me come to terms with my own life. You are all good people. As a result, expect bad things to follow.”
The note is signed Nero.
Much to their horror they discover that their captor is modeling himself after the crazed Roman Emperor, and that he has every intention of killing them off one by one if they don’t learn their true purpose for being on the island. To discover what it is Nero wants from them, the group must delve into their memories, evaluate their faith and beliefs, and unearth the event that links them all together.
Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people? Come to the island and find out!
