A true story of modern day adventurers, treasure-hunters in the biblical sense...convinced that the masses following Abraham out of Egypt left a fortune in gold at the base of of the TRUE Mt. Sinai after crafting the 2 ton solid gold Ark of the Covenant. The true mt. Sinai which resides in modern day Saudi Arabia, draws Jews, Gentiles, treasure-hunters, uzi toting soldiers, killer dogs, night moving killers on four wheels & the ever vigilant Saudis want it all for themselves.

When a millionaire adventurer goes in search of the true Mount Sinai, he gets more than he bargained for. Spies, missiles, and secret military installations are just some of the obstacles that Larry Williams and his sidekick Bob Cornuke must confront in their unprecedented journey to find the lost treasures of Moses. In The Gold of Exodus, award-winning journalist Howard Blum records a page-turning story of an adventure that makes history. While risking their necks by sneaking into the xenophobic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, amateur archaeologists Williams and Cornuke become pawns in a game of international espionage that eventually leads them to the top of the most sacred mountain in the world, and into the hands of shotgun-wielding Bedouins. The Gold of Exodus is a true story that is too unbelievable to be fiction, too suspenseful to be put down, and too significant to soon be forgotten.

Wow! This was a good, fast-paced, mystery-adventure book. It reads like a movie where each disparate group of characters are interesting and you can't wait to see how they will converge. The author quickly advances the momentum of this modern adventure. Mr. Blum lightly focuses on specific Bible history, modern military, spies, and politics which are pertinent to the search for the real Mt. Sinai -- this isn't confusing and adds to the intrigue. I'm keeping my copy, for now, to read again - it only takes a couple of sittings! The down side was, I treated this just like an "Indiana Jones" novel, as I felt it sometimes had a light or glancing touch on the scary situations. I also wanted to "feel" or "care" more for these two main fellows, but what they were doing was unethical and illegal; so, perhaps it is that I really do not identify or empathize with them.

This was an exciting book. It is a true story written as a novel. It certainly brought the reality of the exodus to light. It also opened my eyes to the oasis the Israelites camped at and the caves of Jethro. It will cause me to read the exodus with new eyes. A must read for anyone who loves the Old Testament stories.
