2012 is Coming... Or is It? New Thriller/Novel Adds Unique Twist to the Ancient Prophecy

December 21, 2012 marks the prophetic end of the ancient Mayan calendar. Tenuta's epic-scale thriller, The Ezekiel Code, is attracting readers with its unique twist on this "end times" scenario. "Entertaining and enlightening!" - Jay Weidner, author and documentary film producer. "An impressive feat!" - Peter A. Gersten, Esq., editor, PAG-eNews

Everett, WA, January 26, 2008 --(PR.com)-- It's all here in one puzzling page-turner of a novel: conspiracy, codes, secret societies, ancient mysteries, the prophetic Mayan calendar end-date of 2012, alternative interpretations of Biblical events, mystifying metaphysics, good guys, bad guys, murder most foul and, yes, even a touch of romance. All of this, and more, is intricately woven into the multifaceted storyline of The Ezekiel Code.

Gary Val Tenuta - former contributing writer for Fate Magazine and a guest on numerous radio programs (including Dreamland, hosted by best selling author Whitley Strieber) - has crafted an exciting mystery novel with an esoteric edge that may upset certain segments of the population while at the same time enthralling others with its alternative perspective on reality and its vision for the future.

From its cliff-hanger prologue to its stunning and unforgettable conclusion, The Ezekiel Code is a skillful blend of fact and fiction with likable, vividly developed characters: Zeke Banyon, a handsome Catholic seminary dropout who now runs a homeless shelter in Seattle's old waterfront district and Angela Ann Martin, an attractive young widow who just wants a simple part-time job at the shelter. But a single twist of fate turns their simple lives upside down when together they stumble onto a mysterious code and a rumor about a lost scroll scribed by the prophet, Ezekiel, thousands of years ago. Strangely linked to this lost scroll is the prophecy of the ancient Mayan "Time Keepers" concerning the year 2012. Zeke and Angela soon find themselves swept into a world of secret societies, metaphysics, mystery, and murder as they follow a trail of cryptic clues and jet across continents in a race to understand the code that will lead them to an ancient artifact of profound importance. Dodging rogue Jesuit priests at every turn, they soon discover it's not just their own lives that are in danger but the lives of everyone on the planet.

The clock is ticking… the code must be deciphered… and only one man can save the world - if he can just figure out how - before it's too late.

The Ezekiel Code, a metaphysical/mystery/adventure/thriller on a grand scale (and a 2008 EVVY Award nominee), is available now.
