The history is that of a military conflict ordered by the chief antagonist to start a war for profit. The religious issue seeks the whereabouts of the Ark of the Covenant.
The role of the Knights Templar is significant to the story line due to the importance the Ark played to both countries’ religions. The Knights’ duty is to protect the Ark. The Ark is significant to both countries because it contains the Ten Commandments carried down by Moses from Mt. Sinai.
What Lukeman does is weave a story of military conflict where seeking control of the Ark is tantamount for both military and religious control of the Middle East.
The plot is straight forward. It held my interest from start to finish. The character development of the protagonists is also well developed by CIA Project group leader Nick Carter.
There is good rising action between both the protagonists and antagonists. Several instances of attempted assassination are somewhat thrilling. I liked the falling action and the resolution.
I’ve been reading this writer for a while. I recommend the book as informative into the religious background of the Knights and the geography the author presents leading us to various places in the Middle East in pursuit of the Ark.
I have to wonder why an author of Mr. Lukeman’s skill opted for this plot when all of his other Project books are much more grounded in reality (or at least the thriller version of reality). 4 good guys against 100 bad guys is fairly typical in thrillers of this type. Actual psychics, prophets and other demonstrably falsifiable concepts is not. It is particularly egregious in light of the fact that in book 4 (The Tesla Secret) Mr. Lukeman went to great lengths to establish that a proton beam weapon is grounded in science. I just don’t know what he was thinking here.
The book, like all others in the series continues to shine in terms of character development.
In any event, I've already read the next book, The Ajax Protocol, and it more than makes up for this blunder. That will get justly deserved 5 star review.
Wow. Each story was non-stop intrigue, not only because of the action. "The Nostradamus File" provided wonderful insight into Nick and Selena's angst about what they did, why they did it, whether or not they could keep on keepin' on, and whether their relationship could survive what they did. In the end, I believe, they realize that someone has to do the extremely tough stuff in order to keep our country safe from psychopathic megalomaniacs. All the stories in Lukeman's series may be fiction, to be sure, but one can't read thrillers like this without wondering if even a little bit of it could actually happen in reality. Improbable? Impossible? I am not willing to vote one way or the other.
Another reason I liked "The Nostradamus File" is that it seemed to set up a transition into a higher level of intrigue for The Project, additional characters, and depth in interrelationships among the team members. I can't wait!
P.S. To those who poo-poo what they think is implausible about the series... Don't forget, it is fiction... not real... make-believe, etc. If the protagonists never made any mistakes and always made right decisions, I think it would get very boring.
