    US Senator Tom Flanagan gains the power to raise the dead, which makes him the target of machinations by powerful groups such as the US government and the Catholic Church. This is a terribly written novel with clumsy characterizations. Author Thomas F. Monteleone comes off like a crazy militant libertarian at times. His depiction of the government is filled with unabashedly sinister and self-serving caricatures that all but rub their hands together with glee and cackle over their evil plans.

The whole millennial fever aspect of the story seems silly in retrospect (and seemed silly to some of us even at the time). The pointless subplot involving Flanagan's visions of a burning man foreshadow something that is completely unconnected to the main story. Perhaps it was meant to be developed in a sequel. Was such a sequel ever written? I couldn't care less.

    I am torn about how to rate this book. It's a 2 or 3 star. I did not totally dislike it but I was not swept up in the story. I kept reading out of curiousity for how it would turn out, but it was not what I would consider a satisfying read. I was drawn to the historical aspect of the novel but it is more about the damaged people than about the missing books of the bible. The characters are fairly well drawn if a bit cliched. It's a sad story about sad people trying to fill the voids in their lives I am torn about how to rate this book. It's a 2 or 3 star. I did not totally dislike it but I was not swept up in the story.

    This author is best known for Blood of the Lamb, a chilling tale of what can go wrong with cloning a god. Here, we have a U.S. Senator who survives a plane crash and discovers that he now possesses the power to raise the dead. And while he is trying to hide what he has become, he finds himself hearing strange voices in his head. It's a thriller with plenty of twists and great characters. The less said, the better, except to say this is an enjoyable read.
