Author’s Bio

As a kid, Zvi Speiser was fascinated with electronics and science fiction stories. He received his BSC in Electronics at the beginning of Israel’s Yom Kippur War (1973). As a pioneer in computer graphics he developed state of the art devices that were in the forefront of this emerging market. His electronics hobby gave way to radio controlled, aerobatic model airplanes that later developed into flying sports planes. The basic idea for 2036 The proof arose some 20 years ago and finally materialized when Zvi left his day job.

2036 The proof is Zvi’s first of two consecutive books and his first full-length science fiction novel. He previously wrote short stories for his two daughters when they were young, which he now enjoys reading to his grandchildren. Zvi is 69 years old and married with two daughters and four grandchildren.

My Review

4 stars

While working on a drug for longevity, a scientist notices a strange pattern in a petri dish. New telescopes have surpassed the Hubble telescope. They have seen stars further than they have before and watched them explode. They have also identified an asteroid approaching the Earth. The question is how do these even relate to each other and what does the Sect of the Guardians have to do with keeping information hidden?

This book is a race against time to connect the dots before the possibility of the world ending. Scientists have been turning up dead and Detective Rick Heller has been called in to investigate. Initially things don’t really seem to be connected until investigative journalist Will Thorne finds a link to all of these events. Then there is the Sect of Guardians. They have hidden the Ark of the Covenant and have been protecting a secret for 3,300 years that has a huge impact on the human race.

This is a great, action packed thriller. With the advancements of science, more dangers have risen. With a security guard and several scientists being killed clearly someone is trying to keep something quiet. The question is what. Rick Heller and Will Thorne rush to connect the dots and save humanity.

I like how this story comes together with a bang. I love how science come into play to make this book feel more realistic in the chase. I was easily drawn in to this story and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.

If you like Clive Cussler or Dan Brown you will like this story. It is well written and definitely work checking out.
