The Writing of THE PATMOS ENIGMA: Quest of The Wandering Jew


This has been a labour of love and mixed intelligence. Fascination with the ‘End of Timers’ brigades and their total inaccuracies prompted me to construct a tale, which they might like apart from the ending.


John of Patmos
Their predictions, infused with pagan legends, and Egyptology, Jewish culture and the ultimate Judaeo-Christian interpretation, based much on the Book of Revelation of St. John and Christ’s alleged words, have so far not materialised. 

Is that a good or bad thing? We do not know. That is the mystery. Are we ready for the End Days? What precisely will happen when that day arrives?

This book initially had the word Seals in the title. However, since the main topic of the story is the search for the Seven Seals mentioned in The Book of Revelation, written by The Blessed John while in exile in Patmos, Greece, The Patmos Enigma seemed more fitting, since the mystery originated from that island.

The Wandering Jew
Another less talked about and mysterious character in this book is The Wandering Jew. A man cursed by Christ to walk the earth until He returns, after he shunned and cursed Christ as he walked towards Calvary. What a sentence! If there was indeed such a man walking the Earth, if the legends are true, what will this man want and what will he be doing now with all his knowledge and... experience?

There are several other religious mysteries and legends discussed in this book. It's a mystery/supernatural thriller that will be enjoyed by readers who love the mystical and supernatural. And it is a given that there's action and suspense.

If you've read The Lazarus Succession and loved it, this book will give you hours of entertainment too.



THE PATMOS ENIGMA
Synopsis


Following the success of his UK Top 10 bestselling religious mystery, The Lazarus Succession, Ken Fry once again crafts a cunning and explosive historical thriller unlike any you've read before.

Tel Aviv, Israel. Archaeologist Joshua Agar makes a stunning discovery when on one of his excavation sites, they unearth an ancient ossuary, untouched since the day it was buried. Evidence and analysis reveals that the contents of the find appear to be the six of the Seven Seals mentioned in the bible's Book of Revelation.

The Seventh is missing.

Meanwhile, a mysterious man has been walking the Earth for millennia. He waits... amassing knowledge and power, seeking to bring about the one event that would release him from his endless existence. With the discovery in Tel Aviv, his waiting might soon be over.

Joshua Agar and his team, Professor Simon Rockwell and Dr. Rachel Carver soon realises the significance of their find. An ancient society known as The Keepers awakens, and they are after the Seven Seals. For it has been told, that whosoever breaks the seven seals will have unimaginable power and control over the new world promised through the Second Coming of Christ.

The frantic hunt for the Seventh Seal begins. Through dusty caves, ancient churches, and even within the most secretive vault on earth, they search for clues to the possible resting place of the missing seal.

The archaeologists are not alone. Another ancient secret brotherhood called the Guardians have long protected the Seven Seals, since the time John of Patmos entrusted to them the Seventh. Using their resources, they attempt to discover the identity of The Grand Keeper and impede his plans for global upheaval.

As scientists, the archaeologists perceive their discovery as a historical relic and not a religious find. But with the forces aroused by the unearthing of the artefact, they start to question if there is indeed truth in the story.

The Patmos Enigma will take you on a journey of wonders and thrills as it hurtles from dark truths to enlightening revelations as the war between science and mysticism commences.
