ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Lyn J Pickering has been writing for more than forty years. She lived for a while in Lebanon before the civil war and the Israeli invasion, and made a trip overland from London to South Africa. She began by writing her experiences in poetry as well as a travelogue, and later commenced work on Opus Dei. Her books cover a wide range of subjects including the mysteries of the Giza Pyramids and the Templar treasure in Jerusalem. She brings an entirely new take on some of the rituals of the Egyptian heb sed, linking it to the Orion constellation and claims it is a message for our age. These are, however, side issues that are never allowed to dominate the human aspects of love and relationship. Lyn Pickering is married with five adult sons and a daughter, and has six grandchildren.

"Another leader is about to arise. A man who will seize Europe and overpower her as a man takes a woman. He will dominate her and she will serve him. The man’s name is War."
Pierre Zein, a Lebanese journalist, interviews Hussein ibn Muhammed, an Ayatollah claiming to be the Twelfth Imam of the Shiites and begins a quest to expose the European leader behind the prophecy. His search leads him into danger and to the ultimate realisation that the conspiracy has advanced far beyond the power of human intervention. The year is 1981 and Lebanon is involved in a bloody civil war. Life in is a daily struggle and Pierre’s work takes him out into the conflict areas on the streets of Beirut. When Danielle, a girlfriend from Pierre’s past, contacts him, romance seems an impossibility.
Years later, Israel attacks the Iranian nuclear installations and Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock is destroyed, the way is opened for Europe's leader to take centre-stage. By his actions, Jean de Bar is swiftly seen as a Messianic figure.
Love, drama and mystery lend this action-packed thriller an intensely human angle. Well-written, deeply researched, Lyn J Pickering captures the both the richness and the menace of the Middle East.
Lyn Pickering's book "Opus Dei" captured and held my attention from the beginning to the last page. The story linking the complex political and religious events is convincingly woven. She writes with an easy style and her incredible 30 year research into the documented political and spiritual content brings great credibility to the book. Having some knowledge myself about the following :- the history of Israel and her significance in God's sovereign plan - past, present and future; End times prophecies from the Word of God, the Bible; Freemasonry; The New World Order and Islamic militancy, I found "Opus Dei" totally absorbing and could not put it down. As world affairs unfold what were regarded for generations as "Secret Conspiracy Theories" are now no longer mere 'theories' but are being exposed as fact. I recommend this book to any readers who wish to know the truth about the future of the world and all mankind, according to the Bible prophecies given by God to individuals throughout the Old and New Testaments. I look forward to reading her next book "Nimrod - twice born".
Opus Dei is a very well written book. Lyn Pickering was able to write a very complex plot with so many characters, yet draw the reader into the story with each word. She has an uncanny ability to paint a scene that I felt I was there. This story is about conflict in Lebanon that spreads throughout the Middle East. It begins in the 70’s and culminates into the year 2016. The protagonist, Pierre Zein, is a Lebanese Journalist, who stumbles upon the forces intent on creating a New World Order. As he digs further, he finds himself embroiled in something far bigger than he could have imagined. As the story unfolds, the author introduces the reader to a number of characters, each one a vital piece to the outcome of the story. Lyn Pickering has a natural ability to draw you deeper into folds of each page. I found the Opus Dei to be an easy read that kept me turning the page. What a great storyteller. As the New World Order begins to take shape over the course of the book, the question remains; Will a new world leader emerge and if so will he be a religious figure who strives for peace or will he be a dictator whose bent of causing mayhem and destruction? Written over a period of more than thirty years, Opus Dei’s plot intricately woven, and guaranteed to challenge the reader. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who reads Dan Brown or liked The Da Vinci Code.
