Book One, Bank of Terror, is framed in our present time line that ventures into a fictional future. In 1980, half way around the world from each other, Mohammed, Marsha Phillips, and Michael Finnerty begin life in unusual circumstances. They will be mixed in an international terrorist plot in 2013.
Mohammed’s followers steadily grow during the early years of his international promotion of a peaceful jihad. Many who follow him do so out of convictions similar to his own, but there are those who come along for the ride with the hope of someday converting him to a war of terror for the cause of jihad. Such were the aspirations of an American terrorist cell who sent him the funds robbed from the New York Federal Reserve Bank under threat of a nuclear bomb planted in Washington D.C. Mohammed strives to find a way to return the stolen funds without betraying the trust of his Muslim brothers.
It is not until Book Two, A Tree in the Desert, that Mohammed makes his first choice. He has labored in Babylon for four years espousing a peaceful jihad after being refreshed by a fresh Wind from the Desert. Now he must make a choice between two doors, each holding life possibilities not known by him.
He walks through the one of his choosing to find himself still in the year 2017. The world has not changed, but Mohammed is a changed man. His alliance with a Christian and a Jew through several unusual life events and dreams broadens his spiritual horizon and he finds new meaning in his Muslim faith when he joins with them in 2017 in a common endeavor to assuage the devastation of war and stand against the destruction of terrorism. At the end, Mohammed walks alone along the Euphrates between Hillah and Babylon where he faces two familiar doors.
In Book Three, The Syrian Saber, when Mohammed returns to the end of Book One, as can only be done in fiction, he chooses to walk through the second door into another time line. Although the year 2017 is the same, it is a different world. His ten years in a life of the other choosing is not in his memory banks. He is a changed man with unchanged aspirations in search of a new way with a new name. In his desire to give rise to a new world order, he enters into a contract with Lucifer, a fallen angel, to call upon spiritual forces of darkness in the hope that he can accomplish good. The Directory has a similar ambition while using the power of wealth. The indigenous of Cape York Peninsula in Far North Queensland, Australia become the mission target for Harold and Sarah Warren, also born in 1980, who live in New York. Their work begins in 2013 in Mohammed’s first time line.
In Book Four, Cape Tribulation, Mohammed, now named Sargon, the newly proclaimed Mahdi of Islam, reaches global dominion except for Israel and the Covenant Lands of the indigenous on Cape York Peninsula, Far North Queensland, Australia, including Cape Tribulation.Harold and Sarah travel again to Cape York to meet with the Elder, on Thursday Island. Sargon journeys to that small corner of the world, Cape Tribulation, as a world leader and finds he has no power to change the course chosen by those who stand against him.
Author IntroductionMohammed (not Sargon) returns to the Cape to be with those who have the knowledge of what the future holds; without the ability to change it; only the resolve to live it.
