Hidden Gods: The Doorway is a metaphysical thriller in which two journalists, in an attempt to discover who or what is really behind the chaos in the Middle East, spin back through time to discover the secret codes of Atlantis. Their search for the grail begins with a night in the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid of Giza...
International news photographer Hugo Fitzroy, his schizophrenic son Brent and writer Phillipa Neville, have one vision in common - a great pyramid through whose portal shines a giant sunbeam. Inside, a miraculous escape is planned. Outside, planet earth is changing frequency.
Against a background of the international intrigue surrounding the Gulf War and its aftermath, the visionary trio not only discover that they are being drawn inexorably towards the greatest secret the Middle East has ever kept, but also towards their own destinies. For Hugo, Brent and Phillipa have loved before, in other powerful identities, and now they have come to terms with this as well as their responsibilities to the hidden gods.
Anthony Masters is the author of eleven works of adult fiction - notably, Conquering Heroes (1969), Red Ice (1986, with Nicholas Barker), The Men (1997), The Good and Faithful Servant (1999) and Lifers (2001) - and, prior to his death, was in the process of completing another, Dark Bridges, which he thought would be his best.
Many of these works carry deep insights into social problems that he gained, over four decades, by helping the socially excluded, be it by running soup kitchens for drug addicts or by campaigning for the civic rights of gypsies and other ethnic minorities. Masters is also known for his eclectic range of non-fiction titles. It ranged from the biographies of such diverse personalities as Hannah Senesh (The Summer that Bled, 1972), Mikhail Bakunin (Bakunin: the Father of Anarchism, 1974), Nancy Astor (Nancy Astor: A Life, 1981) and the British secret service chief immortalized by Ian Fleming in his James Bond books (The Man Who Was M: the Life of Maxwell Knight, 1984), to a history of the notorious asylum Bedlam (Bedlam, 1977).
