"Comes a Horseman" by Robert Liparulo

On November 8, Comes a Horseman broke into the Top 100 Thrillers on Amazon.com, nestled among novels by David Baldacci, Lee Child, and Dean Koontz.

Robert Liparulo does a masterful job of creating a fast-paced, page-turner as he weaves an intense plot.

FBI agents Brady Moore and Criminal Psychologist Alicia Wager are accustomed to grisly crimes like the so-called Pelletier Killings. Gruesome murders without patterns are occurring all over the United States. Brady and Alice follow the killer's trail, but are unable to decode the ritualistic clues left behind after each slaughter.

Brady and Alice stumble onto an obscure lead that exposes an age-old conspiracy extending from the US to the Vatican to Jerusalem to Canada's Northwest Territories. When these ancient prophecies link the victims, the wrath of the killers turns on them. Reeling from a series of attempts on their lives, they follow a scant trail of evidence that leads them to Luco Scaramuzzi, the charismatic Italian ambassador to Israel-a man of near limitless power and incalculable wealth. A devoted network of followers fulfill his every desire and await the day that his power will be unleashed on an unsuspecting world.

Eventually, Brady and Alicia learn the secret that can bring him down. If only Brady can act before his own anger and confusion burn him up. If only Alicia can accept a truth that contradicts her strongest belief. Their ensuing battle for survival and truth keeps us guessing until the very last page.

In other NEWS: The movie rights to Robert Liparulo's upcoming novel Comes a Horseman have been optioned to Mace Neufeld, a producer with an extraordinary record of turning novels into hit movies. Neufeld orchestrated such blockbuster book-to-film adaptations as Tom Clancy's The Sum of All Fears, Clear and Present Danger, Patriot Games, and Hunt for Red October; Nelson DeMille's The General's Daughter; Clive Cussler's Sahara; and Stephen Coonts' Flight of the Intruder.

So look for it as the next blockbuster movie!
