"The Alarmists" by Don Hoesel

Terrorists are at work in some new places. Or are they? An earthquake seems unnaturally imminent. Why? It is 2012. Does this have anything to do with the Mayan Calendar? Dr. Brett Michaels, a professor, receives a request to go to Washington DC and consult with a team at the Pentagon. There are no specifics, just that he is needed for a time. There he meets with Colonel Jameson Richards and his team and starts looking at the unusual data they have accumulated from all over the world. Meanwhile, forces are wielding their power in many places under the name Project: Night House. How much of what is happening is real and how much is contrived? How much is meant to make people believe the Mayan prophecy? As Brett sets out to help Colonel Richards' team find out, he finds himself embroiled in a conflict that will take him to other places in the world, and could take not only his life, but the lives of those around him.

This was a wonderful edge of your seat read; a classic good versus evil story. There were moments I didn't know who would survive, or what investigations would stir up. While quite a few characters are thrown into the mix in the beginning, it all makes sense quickly. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good novel about espionage and intrigue. Thank you to Bethany House for my copy of the book!
