The Apocalypse Mechanism

 The Apocalypse Mechanism, by JM Richardson, follows two college professors (one a historian, the other a geologist) on their race to stop a religious zealot in the Middle East from activating an ancient machine designed to start world wide chaos through natural disasters and mass destruction.

This modern-day Indiana Jones tale is steep in research on the history of Egypt, Alexander the Great, Zoroastrianism, as well as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.  Although not a historical novel, I found the history supporting the story very interesting and enjoyable.  I did some further research on some of the topics because the novel piqued my interest.

You won't be disappointed with this book.  You'll have to read it to find out whether the world is saved or not.
