Judyth Piazza chats with Gary Val Tenuta, Author of The Ezekiel Code

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Gary Val Tenuta - former contributing writer for Fate Magazine and a guest on numerous radio programs (including Dreamland, hosted by best selling author Whitley Strieber) - has crafted an exciting mystery novel with an esoteric edge that may very well upset certain segments of the population while at the same time enthralling others with it`s alternative perspective on reality and its vision for the future.

It`s all here in one puzzling page-turner of a novel: conspiracy, codes, secret societies, ancient mysteries, the prophetic Mayan calendar end-date of 2012, alternative interpretations of events described in the Bible, mystifying metaphysics, good guys, bad guys, murder most foul and, yes, even a touch of romance. All of this, and more, is intricately woven into the multifaceted storyline of THE EZEKIEL CODE.

From its cliff-hanger prologue to its stunning and unforgettable conclusion, THE EZEKIEL CODE is a skillful blend of fact and fiction with likable, vividly developed characters: Zeke Banyon, a handsome Catholic seminary dropout who now runs a homeless shelter in Seattle`s old waterfront district and Angela Ann Martin, an attractive young widow who just wanted a simple part-time job at the shelter. But their simple lives are turned upside down when they stumble onto a mysterious code and a rumor about a lost scroll allegedly penned by the prophet, Ezekiel, thousands of years ago. They soon find themselves thrust into a world of secret societies, metaphysics, mystery, and murder as they jet across continents in a race to understand the code that will lead them to an ancient artifact of profound importance. Dodging rogue Jesuit priests at every turn, they soon discover it`s not just their own lives that are in danger but the lives of everyone on the planet.

The clock is ticking...

The code must be deciphered...

And only one man can save the world --- if he can just figure out how ---before it`s too late.
