Publisher's Summary

Prophecy is prologue...
England, 1775: An ambitious American pushes his expedition onward despite dire warnings from the locals. But what Benjamin Franklin discovers on the Isle of Wight isn't just superstition. It's a secret with the power to save the world - or destroy it.
In less than 400 days, most of the world's population will be dead. Nobody knows why, only when: February 9, 2027.
Retired FBI Special Agent Will Piper is one of the few who will live "Beyond the Horizon." Fifteen years ago, he revealed the prophecy to the world after the hunt for a madman led him to the mystical Library of Vectis, now housed at Area 51, in an unmarked location in the Nevada desert.
Will is determined to live out his days in the Florida sun...even as the world sinks into hedonism and despair...even as the Doomsday Killer's ominous calling cards resurface...until the apocalypse threatens the one thing Will won't compromise on: his own flesh and blood.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Keepers of the Library?

The Benjamin Franklin secret society dinner, and the result of that epic scene, was rather compelling. Drew a fascinating image of the scene, and the dialogue therein.


Have you listened to any of David Doersch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have, and he is turning into on of my favourite performers. His accents, pacing, and consistency make for a rich listening experience. In his top performances, without a doubt.

Any additional comments?

This one is classic Cooper. Historical references, larger than life characters, and enough action, , suspense and intrigue to catch and retain the listeners attention. I got hooked on this one, and I do recommend it.

Great Addition to the Series

"The Keepers of the Library" is a great addition to the Will Piper series. I say addition because Glenn Cooper leaves room for books in the series at the end of this book. "The Keepers of the Library" is a well-written, intriguing, roller-coaster of a book. The only downside of the whole book was the performance of the narrator, David Doersch. His performance was at times robotic and generally difficult to listen to.
