    JeffT, a frequent poster here, asked me to review his recent book published in 2021:

    --- Armageddon's Disciples, When Prophecy Fails --- by Jeff Thomas

    I found it very interesting and well worth the time to read. I was the first reader to leave a review on Amazon.

    The paperback is $13.95, but there is a Kindle version if you are into that.

    At its most basic level it is a murder mystery, a whodunit with multiple possible culprits, solved by a tenacious police investigator. What comes as a bit of a surprise is that it is based on a high-control religious group with cultlike characteristics which will make any JW blush... just a bit too close for comfort. Jeff is careful to keep it in the world of fiction, but the point becomes clear as the tale progresses. Escapees from other, non-JW cultish groups will also find it insightful.

    I received no compensation other than an evaluation copy of the book in paperback.

    Viewers may recall that Jeff put out a call for readers and reviewers a few weeks ago on this site:

    Thank you for the wonderful review. As a writer, it is always nice to get a pat on the back. I created a religion for the books because I didn't want this to be about one religion. I had hoped to provide my readers with a glimpse of the emotional impact of cult life, something that is hard to convey in academic discussion.
