When a childhood tragedy comes back to haunt Professor David Shepherd, he finds himself in possession of knowledge that holds the world in a delicate balance. He uncovers the Book of Names - an ancient text originating with the biblical Adam, and thought lost to history forever. By Kabbalistic tradition, the book contains the names of each generation's 36 righteous souls - the Hidden Ones - by whose merits alone the world continues to exist. Legend holds that if all thirty-six Hidden Ones were eliminated, the world would meet its end.

When the Hidden Ones start dying of unnatural causes, the world grows increasingly unstable: war in Afghanistan, massive flooding in New York, brutal terrorist attacks in Melbourne, a tanker explosion in Iran. David finds himself battling against the Gnoseos, a secret religious sect whose goal is to destroy the world by eliminating all of the righteous souls. David's involvement quickly turns personal when his stepdaughter's name is discovered to be one of the endangered. With the help of a brilliant and beautiful Israeli ancient texts expert, David races to decipher the traditions of the Kabbalah to save the righteous souls, his stepdaughter, and perhaps the world.

    " I was on the edge of my seat through the entire book. Read it in two days. Suspense, murder, religious themes and end of days. Lots of twists and turns. "

    " Two years later, I can't remember this book at all "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Sue | 1/26/2014

    " A page-turner, unbelievable plot, required no thought to read. Not as good as The Illumination by the same authors (which wasn't all that good, either). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jody Mena | 1/24/2014

    " Some people might call this book far fetched, but then, what's fiction for, anyway? This was a well-written thriller that was just was intelligent enough to keep me invested, but not so complicated that I got lost. In short it was an excellent balance. I highly recommend it. "
