Book Review: Comes A Horseman by Robert Liparulo

Book ReviewRobert Liparulo's debut novel, Comes A Horseman, is one of the best debut novels I have ever read. Liparulo takes prophecy and, from it, weaves a tale that could be told in the newspapers in this very time.

Two FBI agents are pursuing a serial killer whose victims seem to have nothing in common. A vicious killer who mercilessly slaughters men and women alike. As the Pelletier killer treks across the western states of Utah and Colorado, the agents, who are not officially on the case, employ the latest in FBI "test" equipment in their quest to track down the killer.

But as they close in on their killer, he closes in on them, and the hunters become the hunted. It is then that the heroes learn that there is a far more evil power behind their attacks -- and the rest of the serial killings -- than even they could have imagined.

Is Antichrist walking the Earth today? Could he be here now, among us, orchestrating his rise to power? Are there those in the financial position to help this ultimate source of evil attain his goals on Earth, leading up to the battle of Armageddon foretold in the Bible?

If you have any doubts as to just how possible this might be, you owe it to yourself to read Robert Liparulo's Comes A Horseman. With a very hectic work schedule, I finished this 615 page book in just one week, and that includes a day or two that I didn't get to read any at all.

This book is the mother of all page turners! Do yourself a favor and give it a read.

I couldn't agree with you more. Liparulo is an incredible storyteller. You will also love Germ and Deadfall.
