Ethan Freeman, ex-Special Forces Ranger, wakes up to discover he is the sole survivor of a fiery commercial airline crash that killed his entire family. His nightmare is only beginning when he becomes the FBI’s prime suspect. Only Ethan knows he’s not a cold-hearted murderer, but he has no idea what happened to him–and why he alone survived.
He finds an unlikely ally in Sam Weaver, the NTSB Chief Investigator. An ex-military pilot, Sam senses Ethan is innocent. She tries to remain dispassionate in her investigation of the crash even as she finds herself attracted to the man who may be America’s worst homegrown mass-murderer.
Neither Ethan nor Sam realize that shadowy spiritual forces are at work which will alter their lives forever. A monstrous evil, imprisoned since the time of the Pharaohs, has been released by The Nine, a sinister group of powerful men and women who believe they are the direct descendants of the Anunnaki, ancient Sumerian gods. The demon they have unleashed intends to free The Destroyer from The Abyss, the angelic prison referred to in the Book of Revelation, and unleash a worldwide reign of terror and annihilation.
Facing impossible odds, time is running out for Ethan and all of humanity as he is drawn
into an ever-deeper conspiracy–millennia in the making–and learns that he is the key to stopping The Nine. He must overcome his deepest fears and find reserves of strength he never knew he had as he confronts pure evil in order to save himself and an unsuspecting world.
INFERNAL GATES is available from Amazon.
Michael Webb writes thrillers the way I like them – layer upon layer of tension that steadily builds until you find yourself unwilling to stop reading. It is the same with his latest book.
What I liked about this book is that part of it reminded me of the TV show, Lost. The book contains a lot of mystery and conflict, which piqued my interest. Also, the book contains many interesting historical facts and mythological tidbits.
Heidi Glick, Interviews and Reviews
In Infernal Gates, Webb tells a masterful story of spiritual warfare with unexpected twists and turns. He wets the imagination’s appetite with vivid descriptions that make the reader want to close his eyes and reach out to touch the sand, rocks, and environments in his novels. His scenarios are also downright spooky, making me nervous about leaving the house in the morning or boarding a plane.
Michael J. Webb graduated summa cum laude from the University of Florida and obtained his J. D. from the same university. Over the past forty years he has travelled the world in search of adventure.
He is a history buff, both ancient and modern, and is fascinated by the intersection of the scientific, supernatural, and Biblical world views, and has studied and taught from the Bible extensively for more than twenty-five years. He is also intrigued by recent discoveries in quantum physics that are now providing extraordinary insights into the reality of the spirit realm, especially as it relates to the study of Light. He incorporates all of the above into his supernatural thrillers.
