I had an opportunity to review this book when it first came out...
But as I have promised you, my readers, that the books I post are squeaky clean, I turned it down because of the swearing.
I even had a lengthy discussion with Heather about this. She was very kind and gave me a lot to think about.
I have once again been asked to review this book as it is a Whitney Awards finalist.
After MUCH PONDERING I decided to read it.
To be perfectly honest it is the best suspense novel I have read in a long time.
The story line is incredible!
I LOVED the back-and-forth between what was happening today and what was happening in ancient times.
The swearing is minimal (still wish it wasn't there at all...the story would have been even better than incredible in my opinion :)
But with that said...it was...
Very well written!
A story worth reading!
"An ancient legend is reborn . . . One that might prove the Bible false.
For centuries, historians have theorized the Queen of Sheba as only a seductive legend, and scholars have debated over the legitimacy of King David or King Solomon. When undercover Israeli agent, Omar Zagouri, stumbles onto a tomb in Northern Jerusalem he unknowingly finds the final clue that threatens to overthrow government claim to the Holy Land, pits wealthy collectors against one another, and sends ruthless archaeologists scrambling to find the queen’s secret burial place. An assassination attempt on the Coptic Pope, His Holiness, Patriarch Stephanus II, is only the first in the chain of lethal crimes. Omar must find a way to prevent the greatest discovery of the century from becoming the most deadly."
Heather graduated from Brigham Young University with a major in Fashion Merchandising and minor in Business Management–which has absolutely nothing to do with writing novels. But at least she can balance a mean checkbook and color-coordinate her kids’ school clothes.
