      SACRAMENT OF FEAR

      Cloaked in the guise of a terrorist act, a father takes revenge for the senseless and brutal death of his son

      Following a series of deaths around the world from seemingly “natural causes,” the Special Assistant to the Minister President of The Netherlands, Frans Roobeek, recognizes a special link between the list of victims and his American friend, Wes Franklin … all are members of a secret intelligence network- The Cloister of Akhanaten, or Ankh Network- and Wes may soon become the next member to meet his end by “natural causes”!

      Wes Franklin emerges from the jungles of Columbia with his technology-savvy girl friend, Ashley Jordan, and his weapons expert and Persian strongman, Aryana, to investigate the deaths.  Together, they chase down clues from Holland, Scotland, and Damascus to uncover and foil a diabolical plot to launch an unprecedneted wave of terror somewhere in Europe.

      Into this central plot steps Jared Kennan Cain, a man with a perfect genetic structure who appears to be immortal.  Cain has escaped from The Genetic Discovery Corporation, a Palo Alto-bassed secret government organization tasked with developing biological weapons systems.  Two years of experiements to study Cain’s unique system have been documented in a file labeled THE METHUSELAH MAN.  Could he be the ultimate weapon?
