A Riddle for the Ages
(W.G. Griffiths.com), known for his gripping originality, keeps the
action coming fast in his newest thriller. Put on the seatbelt and
bring a parachute.
From the cradle of civilization, to
technology beyond control,
Methuselah’s Pillar takes readers on an urgent race
across time and faith, where myth and science wrestle for truth.
Prehistoric legends are resurrected into the modern world of greed,
espionage and bio warfare.
On a remote hillside in Afghanistan,
a shepherd minding his flock thinks he hears thunder. As
rockets whoosh overhead, he runs for his life. A missile explodes
nearby and opens a deep crevasse. The shepherd dives into it for
cover. There he finds a hidden sanctuary and a lost ancient artifact
known as Methuselah’s Pillar.
According to legend, Methuselah
received a pillar from his seven times great grandfather, a man
called Adam, whose mysterious origin and knowledge was finely etched
into the stone. Was the pillar divine, or did actual scientific data
help Methuselah to become known as the oldest man who ever lived?
The legend also claims that Moses possessed the enlightening pillar
before he singlehandedly delivered Hebrew slaves from the powerful
Egyptians with miraculous plagues.
Soon after the
pillar’s discovery, American unmanned reconnaissance drones spot
strange anomalies in the craggy northern mountains of Afghanistan.
The Army sends special ground forces in to investigate. They were
completely unprepared for what they found. Samantha Conway, a
renowned archaeologist and ancient language expert, is called to
decipher the pillar’s writings, as deadly plagues dating from the
time of Moses return.
Methuselah’s Pillar is one for the ages.
