"The deep knowledge that the author has of Nostradamus’ works is evident throughout the novel ..."
Nostradamus originally made 1000 prophecies but only 942 were ever uncovered.
A French gypsy tries to sell information of the missing 58 verses to 2 different parties. Firstly to Achor Bale, who represents an ancient society clouded in secrecy. The second possible purchaser is desperate writer Adam Sabir, who is trying to breathe new life into a struggling career.
Bale kills the gypsy and pursues Sabir who ends up hiding with the family of the murdered gypsy. This leads to a race across France and Spain as both parties follow the clues left by the dead gypsy in their attempts to find Nostradamus' missing 58 quatrains.
The missing verses contain the secret of the third “Antichrist” who follows after Napoleon Bonaparte and Adolf Hitler, details of the second coming and also the date of the Apocalypse.
Will it be the evil society which has supported previous “Antichrists” or will it be the author and his gypsy companions who discover the lost prophecies first?
