Prophet, Priest and King: A Novel of King Solomon by John Howard Reid
Approx. 52,880 words.
Published on April 21, 2011.
It's not easy to write a Biblical story and still make it seem relevant to the present times but clearly John Howard Reid knows his subject matter well. This fully-engaging novel presents an aged and not-so-wise King Solomon who is forced to make certain choices. He has to pit his wits against the temple priests when an unknown killer is on the prowl, and the common people are close to rebellion.
