    Compared favorably to Dan Brown's novels, Sam Bourne's The Last Testament takes aim at a conflict that's endured since Biblical times. In Jerusalem, the shooting of an innocent man sets off a chain of killings that threatens to derail a historic deal between the Israelis and Palestinians. Maggie Costello is called in to negotiate the peace, but soon realizes the string of murders is targeting the expert archaeologists who are her only hope of unraveling a long-hidden secret in the Bible.

    Overall I am huge fan of historical fiction. This book had all of what I like but also some areas that made me think how silly. (Hiding something in Second Life). Overall entertaining but nothing too original in terms of how it flows.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"

    Simply put, I very much enjoyed listening to this book. Often reviews on here simply don't say what most people want to know. Is the book a good listen or not? This book will be worth your time if you accept it for what it is. It comes with strong reviews but won't be going down in history as an American triumph.

    My opinion only, would say that after listening to this book you will say you rather enjoyed it. It won't be a waste of time or money on any level.

    Enjoy!
