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.

Once I got started, I couldn't put the book down (read it in two days)!! There is so much going on, I couldn't wait to find out how it all fit together and ended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great plot twists and turns October 19, 2013
By Ginny
Format:Kindle Edition
I agree with what some of the other reviews mentioned, that it was a hard book to put down. There was plenty of action, plot twists and turns and charismatic characters. I don't read many books with mystical things going on but I enjoyed this book. Having the story unfold in multiple locations was an interesting way to tell the story. And anytime the Earth is about to be destroyed.....well, don't you need to read to the end to see how it is resolved.
There seemed to be several indications that the author was setting us up for a sequel and I think it will be just as enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Gritty Mystery! September 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Solomon's Ring is an exceptionally well-written crime drama with a clever Biblical twist. The writer, Raymond Hamilton, begins with a simple crime scene. From there the plot widens into a complex web of mystery, horror, and deception. Hamilton incorporates a dizzying array of characters into the tale and he has a keen eye for providing each with their own voice. The characters are compelling though it can get a bit confusing keeping up with them all. The action is fast-paced but never forced. You definitely won't put your tablet down as you race to the finish. The climax is good! But I think it could have been even better. That being said, getting there was great! Solomon's Ring is highly recommended by this reviewer and I look forward to Mr. Hamilton's next effort.

Format:Kindle Edition
Solomon's Ring is an intense story!
Such a powerful read, every word just kept you wanting to go on, turn the page and keep going. It is an engaging book that holds onto the reader and refuses to let go.
It mixes government agents and the supernatural in a new and refreshing way.
Special Agent Cole and CIA Bloomberg were great characters and complemented
each other wonderfully, helping to keep the story flowing perfectly as they pieced the jigsaw puzzle together and the picture came together as they worked.
Solomon's Ring was so suspenseful and is guaranteed to have the reader panting for more, even when its over.
Its one of those books that even when its finish you keep turning the page, hoping for more.
A very talented author and I hope to see more from them.
