Comes a Horseman
Author: Robert Liparulo 
Publisher: West Bow Press 
Release : November 2005
Length : 496 pages 

While Robert Liparulo is an award-winning author of magazine articles and short stories, this is his first foray into the world of thriller fiction as a writer. He has worked as a celebrity journalist, interviewing Stephen King, Tom Clancy, and others though, so he is no stranger to the thoughts and ideas behind such stories.

FBI agents Brady Moore and Alicia Wager are assigned to track down serial killer that is targeting victims with no apparent common denominators. As they begin to figure things out, they go from investigators to potential victims of a killing machine that hunts his victims with the help of a pack of trained dogs.

>From the first page, Comes a Horseman will suck you in and keep you up turning pages. Starting out with different storylines running side by side, the suspense is amped up as you come to find how they are all racing toward an explosive climax.

Liparulo crafts a book that creates characters that feel real. The Christians aren't perfect little church mice. They struggle with their faith and demons while they deal with their day to day challenges. The serial killer the FBI agents are chasing carries keepsakes from his children with him. You will see the transformation of a man that wants others to think that he is Antichrist become deluded to the point that he believes it himself. Power corrupts. Absolute corrupts absolutely.

While this book is based on Biblical prophecies of Armageddon and Antichrist, Liparulo does not get bogged down in the churchiness of it all, but uses it as a basis to right a heart pounding page turner. A great first novel from an author who has a history as a talented writer, and appears to have quite a future as a novelist.
