What if more ancient scrolls were found from the dawn of Christendom?
What would pious (and political) Christians, Moslems and Jews do?
What would unscrupulous people who want to destabilze the already unstable Middle East do, or rather, what WOULDN'T they do?
By the author of the Amelia Peabody Egyptian mysteries, Elizabeth Peters, who is also Barbara Michaels---a good writer, whatever she calls herself.
From back cover: In the darkness of the night Dinah Van der Lyn heard the cries for help through her hotel room wall, cries in English in the middle of Beirut. "Help!" was the only word spoken in English. She thought the men were simply drunk and fighting. Her mistake was the first step on an odyssey of terror that would take her to the fabled cities of Sidon, Tyre, Damascus . . . and then Jerusalem, racing through the twisting streets not knowing if the man she was following would lead her to safety or into a deadly trap!

Easy to like leads in this mystery set in the Holy Land. I felt a little cheated by the ending, but it was still an enjoyable story.
