After the king’s best friend Joseph is viciously attacked and left for dead, it becomes evident that someone is conspiring against King Saul Oman and his very legitimacy to the throne. Legends, ancient societies, and corrupted loyalties obscure the path to the truth. Amidst a swirl of danger and intrigue in the Holy City, will Joseph ever come to know his own lineage? Who is the rightful heir to the throne?
The answer to this question is contained in ancient scrolls—documents the king’s enemies will kill to get their hands on. Where is the jewel and who has the scrolls? Will Joseph willingly accept his place in life or vow to serve the king? How are the Freemasons involved?
The Chamber of Truth is a thrill ride of suspense and subterfuge through the heart of Jerusalem.
What they're saying about it:
"In his first novel, John Burchfield has skillfully woven a beautiful adult adventure story of love, friendship, and psychological intrigue. Set in the Middle East, the brilliant and contemporary characters takes the reader on a thrill ride as they prevail the good and the personal demons in all of us. While the book has been written to reveal the precepts of the masonic fraternity, one does not have to be a member of the fraternity to enjoy the characters' dilemmas presented in the novel. I highly recommend this for a enjoyable read. I intend to buy extra copies for holiday and birthday gifts."--Amazon Reviewer
"I do not normally have my literary expectations met, or for that matter exceeded, by most of what poses as today's great literature. However, Mr. Burchfield has far exceeded my expectations with his original work of fiction, The Chamber of Truth - Quest for the Jewel. The story takes place in modern day Jerusalem as well as gives his readers a good overview of Freemasonry. The characters in the story portray all the facets of humanity - from loyalty to betrayal, from love to hate, from wrongdoing to redemption - all the while leading the reader on an action packed mystical journey that assuredly will not disappoint! It is for these reasons that I highly recommend reading this book!"--Amazon Reviewer
