Men in Black...An Ancient Manuscript...A City that Shouldn't Exist!...
Mitchell Sinclair is an innocent man who accidentally comes into possession of an ancient text. Soon he is being chased to the ends of the earth, pursued by shadowy forces who seem intent on getting the book back and eliminating all evidence of it. As he attempts to stay alive and translate the mysterious document he uncovers horrific and ominous details of an ancient, worldwide conspiracy. But the question is, can he find the answers he seeks before he loses everything?
No matter how paranoid you are, you're not paranoid enough!
City of Pillars charts one man's journey into madness, past the narrow confines of Western notions of reason and scientific reality. As he decodes more and more of the secrets of the City of Pillars, Sinclair is pushed farther and farther outside the bounds of traditional society and is forced to discard his morality piece by piece to stay alive. He is forced to answer the question:
How far am I willing to go to uncover the truth?
"Reading this book makes you feel like you're running a race; cold sweats, rapid heartbeat, delirium-induced euphoria. But it is more than a typical 'action adventure'. Mr. Peloso has spent a considerable amount of effort drawing together diverse spiritual and historical subjects such as the Kaballah, Rosicrucianism, and the Qur'an, and fused them with well-known 'mythology' subjects such as the Men in Black and the origin of the Pyramids in Egypt. In addition to the action and 'mythology', the novel is filled with biting social and political commentary about the complacency and materialism of modern society. Overall, City of Pillars reads like a mix of The Celestine Prophecy, Foucoult's Pendulum, and Fight Club, and could easily become an underground classic."
