    David Hall, an American nuclear engineer, arrives in Israel on a mission of truth. Believing that the defenders of Masada killed themselves to protect a great secret, Hall plans to explore the heavily guarded site and discover the real reasons behind the dramatic end of the Roman siege. Hall is shadowed by an Israeli archaeologist, Judith Ressner, a reserved professor with an agenda of her own. There is more than history hidden within the mountain, and Hall soon finds himself the target of ferocious Israeli security forces.

    Story

    I'm a fan of P.T. Deutermann, but this book was a disappointment. I couldn't tell if he was trying to write a modern "Taming of the Shrew" or write a adventure novel -- neither worked. The narrator did OK on some voices but he made the Israeli "Shrew" sound like an Indian male. I found it very distracting and irritating.

    I'd pass on this book

    Drafted against her will to become a "Sparrow" - a trained seductress in the service, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception, and inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America's valuable mole in Moscow.

    Story

    The author clearly understand trade craft and has an intimate knowledge of both American and Russian intelligence agencies. I thought the story was realistic and plausible and left an opening for a sequel. The characters are realistic, humans with attendant foibles and flaws.

    McCarry was always my favorite author of this genre but I think Jason Matthews may well surpass him. I highly recommend this book.

    The world is on the brink of disaster. Iran has just conducted its first atomic weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah — known as the Twelfth Imam — has arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam’s spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bring about a second Holocaust and the annihilation of Israel.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Joel C. Rosenberg and/or Christopher Lane?

    I'm sorry -- I thought this book was awful. The storyline was weak and unbelievable. I thought the narration was good but it was more about Muslims converting to Christianity than a realistic drama about a confrontation between the US and Iran.
