Good read. I had to get past the archeological stuff just showing up almost instantly over a weekend. If you take that as part of the story it is very good.

If you're interested in archeology, you'll like this one. Not as exciting as the Left Behind series in my opinion, but interesting. I am curious enough to read the next book in the series.

Michael Murphy is an archaeologist who fearlessly hunts down ancient artifacts without considering any danger involved. He and his wife become involved in a plot to destroy Christianity and they must work hard to save the world from the power of evil. Satan's forces are beginning the countdown for the end of time for all mankind.
Very interesting and absorbing mystery, gives us something to consider about the places of good and evil in this world.

Fans of Tim Lahaye will enjoy this book. Storyline a little slow moving. I found the character of Murphy engaging. Very easy, quick read.

Lost me early and I couldn't raise the interest to pick the book back up again. It's too bad, because I eagerly read the entire Left Behind series, but this was different. It started out promising, archaeology, intrigue, a nefarious plot, good guys and bad guys. Early on, a character was killed, given it was a character we knew little about and had not cared about, but the manner in which he was killed, the reaction of the only witness, and the promise from the killer that "there will be many more things you'll be asked to do..." just destroyed my interest in going any further. I just don't have the stomach for that, especially starting that early on in the book. Sure, the Left Behind books had lots of gruesome deaths, but you were at least prepared for it and at least felt some empathy. This was out of nowhere, someone we weren't familiar with, and the promise that many more were to come wasn't anything I was interested in finding out about. I guess I'm in the minority, the other reviews are positive, but this just wasn't for me.

I was disappointed in this book. It felt like a cross between a bad Tom Selleck movie and Indiana Jones. To be fair, it was action packed. But the good guys were too good and the bad guys were too bad. It wasn't realistic. I guess after Murphy finds the first artifact in like half an hour....I got kind of ticked off. I mean....something that's been lost of thousands of years and he finds it on the first try? Come on. But if you can get past the phoniness and just go w/the flow. You may like this book. Me, I give it a 6.
