ABOUT THE BOOK:
The Aleppo Code
Will the code reveal history's most powerful weapon for destruction--or humanitys only hope?
The living members of Tom Bohannon's band of adventurers gather again in Jerusalem--physically battered, emotionally exhausted, spiritually challenged, and in various stages of shock--to examine a copy of the tenth-century Aleppo Code, the oldest complete text of Jewish scripture. What the clues inside reveal could lead to the reuniting of the Ark of the Covenant with its true source of power, a weapon that could lead to victory for this ragged bunch trying to save the world.
Hunted by the relentless assassins of the Prophet's Guard and caught in the web of an international conspiracy plotting the conquest of Europe, Bohannon's team searches the ruins of Ancient Babylon. Their search lands them amid the chaos that engulfs western Iraq, but they must press on to accomplish one of the most pivotal pieces of end-times prophecy. This intrepid group will uncover secrets that require them to risk everything for their faith, their country, and the peace of all mankind.
Unfolding against the backdrop of an Israeli/U.S. strike against Iran and the planned economic overthrow of the European Union by the sinister, secret head of the international Muslim Brotherhood, The Aleppo Code is a heart-pounding race. Brennan takes an epic story on a grand scale and tells it primarily through the eyes of one man who is desperately trying to save the world as he follows God's purpose for his life.

Dynamic Uno Here: Before I go any further, if you have not read book #1-The Sacred Cipher, or book #2-The Brotherhood Conspiracy, please go read them first or you will not understand what is happening in this third installment of the story, nor will you enjoy the plot. Don't say I didn't warn you...
While still reeling from the deaths of their friends, Tom and his team are still on the run in Jerusalem. While hiding among their new found friends, they learn that their adventure is not quite over. It seems that there is still a scroll out there whose meaning, once deciphered, will lead to the most powerful weapon in the world--the one that threatens to bring about the end of the world.
Tom and his companions are being pursued because the Prophet's Guard believe that they know how to decipher the scroll and find the hidden weapon to bring about total world destruction. With the help of friends around the world, Tom and his group try to stay ahead of their pursuers while trying to break the code to find the staff of Aaron (the greatest weapon in the world).
