An adventure thriller from the Biblical times.


If it is myth, mysticism and mystery that you are looking for then you have picked up the right book. John Howard Reid’s novel, Prophet, Priest and King is set in Jerusalem during the time of an aging King Solomon. There are twelve stories which are called scrolls in this book and each of the stories is a chapter. Each story gives a different point of view. It is not easy to write a Biblical story and still make it seem relevant to the times but clearly John Howard Reid knows his subject matter well. He makes full use of this knowledge as he weaves his twelve scrolls together into engaging stories.
The tales are about an aged and a not so wise King Solomon who is forced to make certain choices. He has to pit his wits against the temple priests when an unknown killer is on the prowl in Baal. The fact that the much oppressed common people are close to rebellion does not make matters any easier. The Biblical characters are many and if you are not well versed in the Bible and the Chronicles, like me, chances are that you will find yourself googling much of your way through the book. But I must say that I am all the richer for it. There is Jeroboam the former governor of Israel, Ajijah the wandering prophet, Iddo the blind seer, the high priest, the prophet Nathan, David and his son and numerous other characters. If you are into historical novels, this is a good read.
