I highly recommend THE PATMOS ENIGMA: QUEST OF THE WANDERING JEW to fans of this genre as one you do not want to miss, and to anyone who is looking for an exceptionally good story.
Set in Israel, and spanning two millennia, the story is told at a perfect pace. A biblical artifact has been unearthed in a cave complex beneath the desert. Their significance far exceeds their humble appearance, however. Those responsible for the find - archaeologists Rachael Carver, Simon Rockwell and Joshua Agar - are excited by their discovery, but they're unaware of the dark conspiracy being hatched under their noses. Soon, their lives are at risk as an ancient force covets their prize. The Wandering Jew, cursed by Christ, will wreak havoc to accomplish his goals, and he and his minions will commit any crime to establish a New World Order.
As always with Mr Fry's work, the plot is fast and full of mystery. Unlike some of its peers, it doesn't get bogged down with too much historical detail. The pertinent myths and legends are told, with intriguing flashbacks to antiquity and the Renaissance, but the focus is on the here and now. Given their willingness to murder for their beliefs, the fanatical AWC are oddly topical. Two of their number are particularly impressive in their characterisation; one is evil incarnate, the other an indoctrinated zealot. The "good guys" are also well-depicted with believable motivations.
Overall, THE PATMOS ENIGMA is a superb book. If you're into Dan Brown or Indiana Jones, you'll enjoy it just as much as me. An easy 5 stars!
