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.

The Oldest Enemy is an intriguing story about spiritual warfare and evil – true evil in the form of demonic possession and grand scale corruption at the hand of Satin himself. Webb used historic events such as Nazi persecution of the Jews and current day tensions with Israel to add another realistic dimension to the story. The depth of the background story of the characters helped me to connect with them. The storyline was fast paced, filled with twists and turns, and detailed which made me want to keep reading until the very end.
The story kept me on the edge of my seat as more pieces of the puzzles were revealed. It definitely made me think even more about how Satan manipulates the people and the world we live in. Webb has a gift for telling a story that draws readers in and makes them think about the topics being covered.
