«‹Stonehenge› ist ein Meisterwerk.» (The Times) Um die Macht in Ratharryn zu erlangen, wendet sich Lengar, der Krieger, gegen den eigenen Vater und raubt dem Bruder die Frau. Doch Clanführer wird sein jüngster Bruder, Saban der Baumeister, bis Verrat ihn zum Sklaven macht. Blutige, langjährige Kriege überziehen das Volk von Ratharryn. Doch dann hat der Seher Camaban, der mittlere Bruder, eine Vision: Frieden ist nur möglich, wenn ein gewaltiger Steinkreis erbaut wird – eine neue Heimstatt für die Götter: Stonehenge. Eine große Saga um Bruderzwist, Machtgier und Liebe – und die faszinierende Geschichte eines der eindrücklichsten Bauwerke, die jemals von Menschenhand geschaffen wurden. «Bernard Cornwell taucht in die Vorgeschichte ein und versucht sich an einer Antwort auf die Frage, von wem und warum Stonehenge erbaut wurde. Ergebnis ist ein meisterhaft erzähltes Epos, voller starker Figuren, Drama, Farbe, Tempo, Höhepunkte.» (Times Literary Supplement) «Eine reiche Mischung aus blutigem Konflikt, politischen und religiösen Wirren. Was für ein hervorragender Schriftsteller Bernard Cornwell geworden ist.» (The Economist)

"Faith will always prevail," is Doctor Bible's motto and the winning card for Professor Banetti, an unbeliever, to solve the diabolical mystery in Stonehenge. For centuries, Satan's archenemy has been held captive by Satan in the mystical circles of Stonehenge. Known by many names and disguised in many forms, the time of freedom for Satan's enemy has come and if he wins in the ultimate cosmic battle he will be Lord not only of Hell but of all Earth. There are only two people who can unfold his plan, Otello Banetti, a professor and scientist obsessed by the occult, and his friend Doctor Bible, an expert in the scriptures. Devastating earthquakes and tsunamis are the only signs of the clashes between the two evil forces until Satan's enemy arrives in front of mankind disguised as the new Messiah ready to lead us straight to Hell. Born in Prato, Italy, Massimo Franceschini is the author of eleven screenplays and numerous books. Stonehenge is the fourth in the series of adventures of Otello Banetti. The complete saga is nine books: Bible Code, Genetic code, Eden, Golden Papyrus, Premonitions, Banetti Unveiled, and The Church. Each story stands by itself but there are clues connecting all of them and in the final episode everything is explained and clarified. You'll know the back story of the hero, his purpose in life, and his final destiny. Massimo now lives in Florence, Arizona with his wife Teresa. He has six children and nine grandchildren. He loves Bible studies, mysteries, soccer, and movies. He moved to the USA in 1995 and now is an American citizen

Perched on the chalk uplands of Salisbury Plain, the megaliths of Stonehenge offer one of the most recognizable outlines of any ancient structure. Its purpose – place of worship, sacrificial arena, giant calendar – is unknown, but its story is one of the most extraordinary of any of the world's prehistoric monuments. Constructed in several phases over a period of some 1500 years, beginning c. 3000 BC, Stonehenge's key elements are its 'bluestones' , transported from West Wales by unexplained means, and sarsen stones quarried from the nearby Marlborough Downs. Francis Pryor delivers a rigorous account of the nature and history of Stonehenge, but also places the enigmatic stones in a wider cultural context, exploring how antiquarians, scholars, writers, artists, 'the heritage industry' – and even neopagans – have interpreted the site over the centuries.
