The Oldest Enemy – Review

Book Description: David Lighthouse was once a hard-hitting investigative reporter for the Denver Post—back before he was accused of the brutal murder of his fiancée and his life unraveled. Now, six years later, he is the assistant pastor of a small church in Florida. Armed with faith, sobriety, and a resurrected sense of purpose, he’s putting together a new life.

But when one of his young parishioners is murdered, David’s old instincts reemerge. Once again the prime suspect, he fights to clear his name even as disturbing clues at the crime scene reveal a haunting connection not only to his fiancée’s unsolved murder but to his estranged father’s secret past.

David suddenly finds himself the target of sinister, supernatural forces as he tracks down a conspiracy to release an ancient evil upon an unsuspecting world. Along with his father, the murdered girl’s sister, and a fierce Auschwitz survivor, David faces hell itself to prove his innocence and stop a reclusive German billionaire from unleashing a worldwide holocaust.

 

 

I could not put this down. I was not all too eager to read and review this one. I mean it’s hard to find good fiction. A story that draws you in and leaves you hanging on every word. Wanting more. I love a book that is filled with anticipation.

The Oldest Enemy (that’s Satan if you don’t know) Webb is well versed in scripture, and the history and customs of that time. It is all very well woven together; again and again there are moments that are quite thought provoking.

It is clear, sometimes painful as you read, the evils of this world honestly spoken of within this book – unapologetically. Between the supernatural, political and Biblical elements it is truly a worthy read – on the edge of your set (I was anyway) to the end.

Well done I say!
