The Devil’s Triangle – a Review

One crazed family will kill to keep their secrets from being known. The Devil’s Triangle is an edge-of-your-seat story that brings together Leonardo Da Vinci, Nikola Tesla, Moses’s staff, the Ark of the Covenant, weather control, and the Bermuda Triangle. Hold on to your seat. The storms—literal and figurative—that take place in this book will astound you.

From New York to Venice and from Rome to the Bermuda Triangle, the FBI and Kitsune are in a race against time to stop the Koath family, descendants of the Levites, from sending the mother of all storms to destroy Washington, D.C.

The story begins all the way back in April 1519 during the time of Leonardo Da Vinci. The great artist and inventor is about to die. His lover is there with him, and DaVinci asks him to burn the pages that contain drawings and instructions for an invention that he has not yet built. He fears that if someone gets hold of them and builds what he has drawn, that it will be more powerful than man can handle. These pages detail how to build a machine that could control the weather, a lightning machine.

Kitsune, the Fox, is a thief. She has been hired to steal the staff of Moses, or as some know it, Aaron’s rod. She does succeed in taking it from the museum where it is on display, but she is double-crossed by those who hired her to do this. That was a mistake.

Kitsune is a criminal wanted by the FBI, but that doesn’t stop her from reaching out to them for help.

What they discover is that the world, all of civilization, is in danger because of what some very unstable people, Cassandra and Ajax Koath, are searching for—the Ark of the Covenant. If they find the Ark, they will be unstoppable. And they won’t hesitate to kill to get to it.

The intense fighting scenes are written in such a way that you are able to picture what is happening in your mind. This book was hard to put down, and even though it is 513 pages long, I read it in just two days.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. If you would like your own copy to read, I’ve provided an Amazon link for you below.
