An unnerving piece of fiction not for the faint of heart. The Assassin and the Disciple begins eighteen years after Isaac and Sarah are separated following the murder of their father. Now, both seek retribution. The Disciple escapes from a psychiatric hospital and embarks on an unforgettable killing spree in the name of the Lord. The Assassin, now a physicist, takes to the road with a clearly opposing objective, the eradication of religion as the world’s come to know it. Finally, the reunion of these siblings near the end results in a truly apocalyptic conclusion.
This is a cautionary tale of what can happen when the pendulum of faith is swung too far in either direction. It is a book where both the words of God and the knowledge of Man are disordered and abused.
