Whatever the case, the breaking of the seventh seal means one thing and one thing only: the end of the world as we know it. While Chase will stop at nothing to find the missing codices he discovers that the evil Soldiers of the Expected One led by their leader Ansar Al-Mahdi, have taken possession of them so that they may find a way to break the seal and plunge the world into darkness.
Chase, along with a beautiful young long brunette-haired New York City-based Biblical History scholar named, Magda, and an unruly team of Hasidic Jews, must defeat Mahdi before they can take possession of the books. They find themselves not only fighting the fierce evil force, they must scale Jerusalem's Old City walls, crawl down into the Western Wall foundations deep inside its tunnels, fight off all manner of prey and obstacles from giant spiders to the Israeli Army to evil Nazi zombies who rise up from the dead in the Valley of Magida in anticipation of the Second Coming and along with it, Armageddon.
Chase Baker and the Seventh Seal is a romantic, action-packed, alternative history, and thrilling conspiracy mystery for fans of Clive Cussler, Dan Brown, and JR Rain, from NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestselling author, Vincent Zandri.
