Michael Agliolo’s stunning first novel takes you on a journey through human history on a collision course with nuclear Armageddon. Nine words, written in an ancient language, are found embedded deep in the pixels of a photograph taken by Photographer Matt Reese. Struck by a flash of light Matt and model Elaine Gardner experience a simultaneous near-death experience that leads them to the epicenter of a world on the brink of nuclear war. As the past echoes to today, the power of a single photograph is all that separates humanity from World War III.
This author's first flight is a winner...! It holds the reader from the first page to the last in a spellbinding tale. Interwoven with history and spiritual themes, this book will keep you turning pages all night until you reach the surprising and satisfying end...
Originality and authenticity have always been the bedrock of great fiction and in Last Light Michael Agliolo comfortably delivers on both counts. Blending apocalyptic conspiracy and biblical dogma, it’s a literary undertaking that might daunt the most seasoned of authors. But it’s one which Agliolo manages with enviable panache with his descriptive ability painting scenes that are compelling and immersive.
