Book Description

At the highest levels of government, very mysteriously, certain members of the presidential chain of succession are found murdered. However, these murders are not your ordinary murders; the presidential cabinet members’ bodies are found in a mummified condition—like they have been ceremonially prepared and entombed, by ancient Egyptians, for a thousand years. For this to have occurred overnight is a complete mystery and complicates the investigation for FBI Agent Robert Cole.

Government leaders fearful that this may be the work of foreign terrorists dispatch CIA Agent Amir Bloomberg to assist Agent Cole with the mysterious case.

Agents Cole and Bloomberg soon find themselves in a race against a powerful supernatural entity stalking government leaders, sophisticated terrorists on the verge of creating a powerful weapon, and time to uncover the truth before the unspeakable happens and changes the world forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read February 23, 2013
By GiGi
Format:Paperback
What would you do to free yourself from a life of bondage and servitude to task masters who don't even think about your own freedom? Well, FBI Special Agent Robert Cole and CIA Officer Amir Bloomberg have put the pieces together and are about to find out what it takes for an ancient demon to free itself from its bonds. King Solomon was said to have a very special ring which encased the Seal of Solomon, having the power to control demons on Earth. One demon needs a new king to serve.

At the same time, Cole and Bloomberg find themselves tracking down a dangerous terrorist hell bent on developing a sophisticated new weapon. Time is running out for the team to connect the dots and uncover the truth. If they don't, the world as we know it will change forever.

Raymond Beresford Hamilton's new science fiction thriller is a creative fusion of biblical revelation and real world threats. Hamilton is brilliant in his newest work, Solomon's Ring.

4.0 out of 5 stars This book really keeps you on the edge of your seat. October 8, 2013
Format:Paperback
Solomon's Ring is a story about a ring that has magical powers. With this ring, a human has the ability to control demons. This ring had belonged to the wisest King in history, King Solomon, and had been passed down through generations. Unfortunately, some of the danger warnings were forgotten along the way and evil incarnate comes to earth. It begins with an unsolved murder in which the victim is mummified and then fast-forwards twenty years. In the present time we see top level government cabinet members being killed and preserved in the same way. The FBI and CIA are trying frantically to solve the mystery before it takes out the President of the United States.

Raymond Hamilton does a very good job at keeping the reader in suspense. He is constantly keeping you guessing on what is going to happen next. There are only two reasons that I didn't give it five stars:
1. There are several different people and story lines that are going on at the same time, which can make it a little confusing; and
2. I felt like the ending was a little unresolved. I would have liked the author to have expanded upon a few things at the end. I think there was a very good story line involving the FBI's daughter and her boyfriend which fell flat.

Otherwise, I thought it was an excellent book and I enjoyed it very much! I don't normally read books of this nature, but I did find myself not wanting the story to end.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read June 11, 2013
Format:Paperback
Solomon's Ring by Raymond Beresford Hamilton was a very different kind of crime thriller. It surpasses genres to become its own creation. We have mystery, drama, horror, and fantasy coming together to create this urban crime thriller/supernatural thriller. I have always been a fan of mystery and supernatural and I really like when the author can combine the two into a worthy story.
You can really see how Hamilton did his research in lieu of this novel. There is a lot of information about Masonic history, which I love, and a lot of occult themes running through the novel. I am a huge historical fiction fan and while this isn't actually a historical fiction; there is a lot of reference to Christianity, mason history, and politics.
Another reason I liked Solomon's Ring is how the author took many texts from the bible, and other religions to find the magical aspect of them. Even witchcraft, if you will. All of these helped contribute to the very different plot of Solomon's Ring.

However, there were some things I just could not get into with this book too. A huge problem I had with the novel was that it jumped from first person to third person so much. Usually, when it is in first person, we can only really see what is going on with the narrator; but with Solomon's Ring we were taken to other places, even countries, with other characters while our narrator was somewhere completely different. I know what the author was trying to do but I just couldn't really get into it.
While I enjoyed a lot of the historical facts associated with the story; it was at times just too much information in other ways. The story seemed to be all over the place, especially when it came to our protagonist's daughter and boyfriend.

Title: Solomon's Ring

Reviewer: George Shadow

Summary:
At the highest levels of government, very mysteriously, certain members of the presidential chain of succession are found murdered. However, these murders are not your ordinary murders; the presidential cabinet members' bodies are found in a mummified condition--like they have been ceremonially prepared and entombed, by ancient Egyptians, for a thousand years. For this to have occurred overnight is a complete mystery and complicates the investigation for FBI Agent Robert Cole.

Government leaders fearful that this may be the work of foreign terrorists dispatch CIA Agent Amir Bloomberg to assist Agent Cole with the mysterious case. Agents Cole and Bloomberg soon find themselves in a race against a powerful supernatural entity stalking government leaders, sophisticated terrorists on the verge of creating a powerful weapon, and time to uncover the truth before the unspeakable happens and changes the world forever.

Social/Historical Context:
SOLOMON"S RING is a suspense thriller, which will literally catch you off guard. You'll be grabbing the edge of your sit as if you're in the movies, and oftentimes, you will be wondering whether this never happened. The novel plays out very familiar themes, though. The missing talisman of a long lost king as well as the ominous misgivings it bears with it from beyond his grave. The mysterious murders involving the powerful elite as well as the ensuing investigation, which sees two agents crowding out their feelings as they begin to unravel a threat far beyond their imaginations!
Okay...let's hope I haven't given it all away!
I guess I haven't!
