Book Description

March 6 2012
Elisabetta Celestino, a brilliant young archaeologist at work in Rome’s ancient catacombs, has discovered a unique pattern of astrological symbols on an underground wall. She feels sure that evidence of a previously unknown pre-Christian sect lies in an adjacent chamber, and is devastated when the Vatican refuses to support her excavation effort. Ten years later, a cave-in damages the vault, revealing a chamber full of human skeletons that share a disturbing anatomical feature. Elisabetta has joined an Augustinian order following the tragic end of her academic career, but unexpectedly finds herself in a race to solve the secret of the catacomb and prevent an apocalyptic event that threatens the future of humankind. Moving between present-day Europe, 1st-century Rome and Elizabethan England, The Devil Will Come is an exhilarating tale of a battle between the forces of good and evil that has been fought in the shadows through the centuries and across continents—and that both sides are willing to kill to keep secret.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Devil Will Come Feb. 28 2013
By L. D. Godfrey TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought 'The Devil Will Come' by Glenn Cooper on a bit of a whim. I'm not a big fan of conspiracy type novels, I read the product description and thought it might prove to be an interesting choice,considering the eminent election of a new Pope. I also thought it would be a Da Vinci Code type of book, but instead of Dan Brown, I got Stephen King. I also found out more about Christopher Marlowe than I really wanted to know. The novel moves from 1st century Rome, to Elizabethan England, to present day. The main character Elisbetta (archaeologist/nun) has been summoned to examine strange skeletons found in the catacombs after a cave-in. This is where the strange comes in.The skeletons belong to a cult/race (the book never explains this),a secret society that has been causing havoc in the church and the world for centuries. Cooper does a great job keeping the novel on track,he doesn't waste time or effort on multiple sub plots. The plot itself is fairly straight forward, Elisbetta finds out what this group is up to and together with her policemen brother and sister, father and assorted characters race to prevent the threat. All this time in the background,you have the cardinals and church hierarchy gathering to elect a new Pope. For the most part, I enjoyed this novel. I enjoyed the history and Cooper's way weaving fact with fiction. The novel was interesting but the characters could use a little work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cooper Comes Up With Another Winner Dec 6 2013
By Charles Ferreira - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read all of Cooper's books. He does a very good job of establishing an historical basis for the modern day action in his stories. In this book events in first century A.D. Rome are the catalyst for a conspiracy against Christians and Catholics in particular. I can't remember another book where the antagonists major reason for being was to create and profit from chaos. Its a good read for those interested in early Rome, Elizabethan England or conspiracies against the catholic church.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another riveting tale by Glenn Cooper. Oct. 2 2013
By Daniel Barbier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Another riveting tale by Cooper. As with his Will Piper series, this stand-alone novel mixes history with fiction, in a very suspenseful way. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Seller problem Dec 30 2013
By Sammy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read all of Glen Cooper's book and was sooo looking forward to reading this one but didn't get to it right away so, at this point, it's too late to send it back. It starts with page 2 & 3 then moves to pages 6 & 7 and so on. All of the pages have print only on one side. I am completely disgusted! Either the publisher has no quality control or the seller is selling bootleg books. I don't know which it is but I'm pretty sure I won't buy from SuperBookDeals again. Not so Super and it's going in the recycle bin. The only reason for 1 star is I couldn't give it 0 stars.
