I absolutely loved this book. It's like an intellectual Indiana Jones, complete with secret societies and ancient manuscripts. Although similar to Da Vinci Code, this book focuses on the origin of Israel as a nation-state and on what would happen its origin was based on a lie. Sorry, you'll have to read the book to find out more. :-)

I've seldom come across a book with more twists and turns, a whole boatload of red herrings that sometimes almost overwhelm the plot. The author manages to hold all the pieces together, though, and the story is tightly written and full of interesting premises about biblical history and its implications in modern events. What I thought would be a mediocre knockoff of The DaVinci Code turned out to be a pretty good action thriller, and worth reading.

Usual secret and hidden clues to great knowledge - I found it too wordy and not enough action - but if you like ancient and secret conspiracies then you may like this one.

This story really stretched the imagination. I think the author was really grasping at straws. But it was a good read anyway. I like adventure stories and this was full of adventure.

This was one of Berry's best in my opinion. There was plenty of history and intrigue. It prompted me to read all of his books. I enjoyed every one of them. They made me think!

Another win for Cotton Malone and friends. If you are a Steve Berry fan - you will enjoy this book. If you have not read Steve Berry I suggest you start with his first "Cotton Malone" story, "The Templar Legacy"
