From the Inside Flap:

Praise for Comes a Horseman

"Frightening and fiendishly smart, Comes a Horseman is a must-read! Robert Liparulo's intense thrill ride will keep your nerves frayed and your lights on. "
—David Morrell, best-selling author of Creepers and The Brotherhood of the Rose

"Not for the faint of heart, this is quality writing that deserves a lofty niche within the action/suspense genre. It is well-researched and meticulously detailed, and the characters are fascinating and ‘real,’ the dialogue clever and altogether human, the plot compelling. What I’m trying to say is, I love it!"
—Frank Peretti, author of Monster and This Present Darkness

"Robert Liparulo has crafted a diabolical thrill ride of a novel that makes the roller coaster at Magic Mountain seem like a speed bump. Part serial killer procedural, part global techno-thriller, part spiritual suspense epic, Comes a Horseman has enough plot twists and action to decode Da Vinci! Highly recommended!"
—Jay Bonansinga, author of Frozen, The Killer’s Game, and The Sinking of the Eastland

"A riveting thriller that spins effortlessly off great writing and a demonic villain real enough to have you looking over your own shoulder."
—David H. Dun, best-selling author of The Black Silent

"Robert Liparulo is one of the best writers to hit the block in a long time. Comes a Horseman is brilliantly conceived and executed. It will leave readers desperately wanting more."
—Ted Dekker, author of the #1 best-selling Obsessed

"Robert Liparulo has burst onto the thriller scene with a ferociously original page-turner. Comes A Horseman takes religious conspiracy to the next, frightening level. Cutting edge forensics, horrifying villains, and a slam-bang race to the finish all come together to make one of the most exciting and satisfying reads of the year. "
—JA Konrath, author of Bloody Mary

"Comes a Horseman is an ambitious and original debut thriller by a fine new writer. Robert Liparulo deserves an audience, because he has something meaningful to say."
—C.J. Box, Anthony Award winning author of Out of Range

"Prophecy and murder run ramshod through Comes a Horseman. From the mountain peaks of Colorado down to a labyrinth beneath Jerusalem, mystery and adventure abound in a read that will keep you up to the wee hours of the morning. Not to be missed!"
—James Rollins, New York Times best-selling author of Sandstorm and Map of Bones

"This book has everything—murder, suspense, history, intrigue... Comes a Horseman grabs you and won't let go. It may be the most ambitious, most abundant first novel I've ever read. We'll be hearing from Robert Liparulo for a long time to come. —Steve Hamilton, Edgar Award-Winning Author of Ice Run

"Robert Liparulo starts off with a bang and then lulls us momentarily with well-modeled and sympathetic characters before he drops these totally likeable characters into a series of harrowing confrontations. Some of the fights involving razor-edged weapons manage to be excruciatingly wince-inducing while remaining truly entertaining. This is what is meant by guilty fun."
—Larry Hama, writer, Marvel Comics’ G.I. Joe and Wolverine

"High-octane action and devilish conspiracies worthy of The Da Vinci Code or Left Behind. What's not to like?"
—Joseph R. Garber, author of Vertical Run and Whirlwind

"Robert Liparulo writes the kind of thriller other authors write in their dreams, and readers devour until the wee hours of the morning! Make way for a new master of the genre and a can’t-put-down knockout with Comes a Horseman."
—Mark Andrew Olsen, author of The Assignment and co-author of Hadassah

"Comes a Horseman is stunningly brilliant. It’s a story of epic conflict, despair, courage, and the power of faith and strength and endurance... In one book, Robert Liparulo has clearly proven himself to be one of the best writers of our generation. I will anxiously await his next work."
—James Byron Huggins, best-selling author of Wolf Story, The Reckoning, and Nightbringer

"Comes a Horseman is a true page-turner, with wonderfully developed characters who have all-too-human strengths and weaknesses. The story is frighteningly real and insidious in a way that makes me hope our two FBI agents are really on the job. Robert Liparulo's writing is refreshingly well crafted. I hope there's a sequel!"
—Terri Lubaroff, Senior Vice President, Humble Journey Films

"Come a Horseman is chalk-full of unbelievable excitement and credible research. My nails got shorter with each page—I could not put it down. This incredibly real-to-life thriller envelops the epic battle of good versus evil with a new depth. It is the thriller of thrillers! I can’t wait for the next book."
—Dwight Cenac, President, Welcome Home Care and HCMC Properties

"Liparulo’s book takes the reader across the globe in a riveting story of murder and Church intrigue. A quick, compelling read."
—W.H. Watford, Edgar-nominated author of Mortal Strain and Lethal Risk

"Fasten your seat belt; Comes a Horseman is a wild ride! With great skill and prophetic clarity, Robert Liparulo knows how to tell an exciting story and boost a reader’s adrenaline level. You won’t want to put this one down!"
—Angela Hunt, author of The Novelist and The Truth Teller

"Comes a Horseman has a powerful sense of doom hanging over it from the first pages on. Though the story is global, some of its best writing is surprisingly intimate: a boy and his father besieged in their house, two good people and one very bad one in a dark hotel room. There's some fresh role-reversal in the two leads. The sense of doom yields to a downhill, no brakes, runaway pace, an inevitable clash of complicated Good and uncomplicated Evil. Robert Liparulo knows more than you and I do about some dark corners of history. I appreciate his work."
—Dan Vining, author of The Quick

"Comes a Horseman is a stunning debut that puts Robert Liparulo solidly on the map of the suspense/crime genre. His tale of the Antichrist will sink its teeth into you and hold on until the end."
—Alison Strobel, author of Worlds Collide

"As a long-time Stephen King fan, I've finally found another author who can measure up—Robert Liparulo. Comes a Horseman is a taut blend of suspense with a splash of horror and all around edge-of-your-seat writing that kept me riveted."
—Colleen Coble, award-winning author of Black Sands

From the Back Cover:

The ancients saw Death as a blazing figure on horseback, swift and merciless.

Those facing the black chasm often mistook their pounding hearts for the beating of hooves.

Now, two FBI agents pursuing a killer from a centuries-old cult realize they have become his prey.

To survive, they must ignore their own fear, their own hearts pounding in their ears...

Pounding like Death, riding a pale horse.
