Here's the set-up for Quatrain:
In 1557, Nostradamus published his famous prophetic opus entitled Les Propheties--a collection of four-line, rhyming verses called "quatrains." The original set was supposed to have 1,000 prophecies.
However, only 942 have survived. 58 quatrains have been lost in the annals of time.....until now.
Can a cynical college professor and his two rebellious teenagers find the missing 58 quatrains of Nostradamus in time to stop a terrorist attack on the United States, and will anyone believe them?
From the Reviewers:
Daniel Brown meets Clive Cussler. Hope to see more from this talented new author. Highly recommend.
What a Find - This book keeps you on the edge from start to finish. Switching from the 16th century Nostradamus and his family to present day terror plot. Just when you think you have someting figured out - you haven't. Secret codes and Raps - it's all there. Can't wait for a sequel.
This is the best book I have read in the last five years! I loved the character of the teenage son who annoys his dad by rapping all the time. It was as gripping as an episode of 24, with the fun of an Indiana Jones movie. It was similar to the Da Vinci Code in that you never know what is real and what is fiction. I love anything about Nostradamus, and I have to say I learned a lot about him that I did not know before.
I couldn't put it down - enormous amount of work went into creating this fun and very educational book of fiction!
