“Oldest Enemy” by “Michael J Webb” ~ Book Review by Villageanne

I cannot say enough good things about author Michael J. Webb. I loved his writing style in “The Oldest Enemy”! He carried my mind into a world of its own, where at times I felt fear so strong I found myself looking around to see if someone was here. I felt the fear of the characters as they struggled in a way that I seldom feel when reading a book. I felt like a movie was being played out before my eyes only I did not have to view it on a screen. His style brought such vivid scenes that I was  afraid to go to sleep until I finished the book.


As a history buff, the storyline really appealed to me. I could see analogies from days gone by and things that are yet to come to pass. It added just enough intrigue to draw me in from the first chapter, enough action and suspense to keep me there until the end. It left me hungering for more of this authors tales.


The storyline was like no other book that I had ever read. Often, stories are a bid different but a lot alike that I feel like I am re-reading a story but this book was different. It was unique and refreshing. I would definitely recommend it to my friends. I will be reading more of this authors books.


This story had the whole package going for it. It was well written and well thought out. It was unpredictable as well. I just never knew what was going to happen in the next chapter. I loved it! I rate it a 5 star and would rate it higher if I could. I would love to see this book as a movie.




David Lighthouse was once a hard-hitting investigative reporter for the Denver Post—back before he was accused of the brutal murder of his fiancé and his life unraveled. Now, six years later, he is the assistant pastor of a small church in Florida. Armed with faith, sobriety, and a resurrected sense of purpose, he’s putting together a new life. But when one of his young parishioners is murdered, David’s old instincts reemerge. Once again the prime suspect, he fights to clear his name even as disturbing clues at the crime scene reveal a haunting connection not only to his fiancé’s unsolved murder but to his estranged father’s secret past.

David suddenly finds himself the target of sinister, supernatural forces as he tracks down a conspiracy to release an ancient evil upon an unsuspecting world. Along with his father,the murdered girl’s sister, and a fierce Auschwitz survivor, David faces hell itself to prove his innocence and stop a reclusive German billionaire from unleashing a worldwide holocaust.





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 traveled 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.
Michael and his wife make their home in Charlotte, North Carolina.
