Publisher's Summary

New York homicide detectives pursue a serial killer in this apocalyptic thriller.

When detectives James Manning and Covina "Dewey" Duwai are called in to investigate a series of bizarre murders, they make a shocking discovery: the legend of the hidden righteous ones, the 36 who preserve the world from destruction, is no legend at all. They are real, and they are being murdered. 

As the bodies pile up and the world tilts into chaos, Manning and Dewey must protect the righteous ones from a ruthless killer able to beguile his victims and command them against their will. The detectives find their traditional arsenal of bullets and blades of little use against a foe who seems to anticipate their every move. 

Joining forces with a disgraced but brilliant rabbinical scholar and a renowned anthropologist - who's also the last of the righteous ones - Manning and Dewey set off on a perilous quest from New York to Gehenna to defeat a murderer who won't stop until he's killed everyone.

story is pretty good but the narrator sucks

the slow halting way that she speaks whenever she is voicing someone other than the main character is seriously awkward and painful to listen to. I almost didn't finish the book because of it.

A convoluted mess

This book has an interesting start,but the truly awful narration continually pulled me out of the story. The “devil” who should be voiced with menace or at least gravitas, sounds like that whiny know it all who sat behind you in 5th grade who would Not Shut Up. When the global warming BS kicked in I finally gave up. (It’s called weather.)

Total disappointment! And it’s the narrator’s fault.

I am a huge Pressfield fan but this book I couldn’t get past the first half hour the narrator was so bad. I guess I’ll have to buy the hard copy and read it myself!

Trite and unimaginative

Was quite disappointed in both the story and the reader. This was the book equivalent of a D-list Sci-Fi channel movie...

I Get It and I Don't

This is a story about evil. Its about fighting evil. Pressfield has been a favorite author for many years. But this story...well...It starts from the perspectives of murder cops, one of which was catholic but was a widower from a Jewish wife and child. Best word for his female partner: ambivalent. 2nd best description: detail-oriented chronicler. The story describes what happens when real faith in Torah is needed, but ignored in favor of science and logic. Revelation clearly says all of these climate changes will happen. It also clearly repeatedly says, "they will not repent of their ways and turn to ME!" Sadly, the primary characters never turn to HIM, in spite of actively, knowingly, facing hasatan. Its all quite clearly laid out verbally, within a community of Jews who would have been an excellent resource, but all of this too was ignored. So like I said, I get it, but I don't! Its like fleshing out that old Sinatra song...they did it Their Way.
