“The Revelation Code” eBook was published in 2016 and was written by Andy McDermott (http://www.andy-mcdermott.com). Mr. McDermott has published 15 novels with this being the eleventh in his “Nina Wilder and Eddie Chase” series.

I received a galley of this novel for review through https://www.netgalley.com. I categorize this novel as ‘R’ because it contains scenes of Violence and Mature Language. The novel is set in a variety of locations in the US, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. The primary characters are archeologist Dr. Nina Wilde and her British ex-SAS body guard and husband, Eddie Chase.

During Operation Iraqi Freedom, a CIA officer, Ezekiel Cross, stumbles across an amazing discovery. He is convinced that the small statue he finds is one of the four angles of the Apocalypse, and that he is now a messenger anointed by God. Over the next several years he forms a religious cult with the goal of finding the remaining three angels. He then plans to use them to bring the End of Days as foretold in the book of Revelations.

Wilde and Chase are kidnapped by Cross, and he uses Chase as leverage to force Wilde to find the remaining angels. Wilde and Chase must find a way to escape Cross and find the remaining angels before Cross can. They know that if Cross is able to retrieve the remaining angels, he will use them and hundreds, maybe thousands will die.

I thought that the 11.5 hours I spent reading this 482 page Thriller were, for the most part, enjoyable. I liked the plot and event though there were several other books before this one in the series, it read well as a stand-alone novel. The one thing, for me, that was a detraction was the constant sarcastic remarks that many characters made to one another. That got very old, very fast. That said, I would probably read another novel in this series. I give this novel a 3.8 (rounded up to a 4) out of 5.

My book reviews are also published on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/31181778-john-purvis).
