Down right scary!

This is the followup to the Copper Scroll, and picks up just months after the previous story ends. The plot goes beyond exciting to scary, scarier than anything else I've read in a while because it is so near to reality. Don't want to ruin it for you, but if you read the others you have to get this one. I'm interested to see if Rosenberg continues the story to it's conclusion and how he treats the biblical topics.
