Lod Airport, Israel: Two Concorde jets take off for a U.N. conference that will finally bring peace to the Middle East. Covered by F-14 fighters, accompanied by security men, the planes carry warriors, pacifists, lovers, enemies, dignitaries - and a bomb planted by a terrorist mastermind.
Suddenly they're forced to crash-land at an ancient desert site. Here, with only a handful of weapons, the men and women of the peace mission must make a desperate stand against an army of crack Palestinian commandos - while the Israeli authorities desperately attempt a rescue mission. In a land of blood and tears, in a windswept place called Babylon, it will be a battle of bullets and courage, and a war to the last death.

Audible allows me to fill my mind with something so much better than TV.
DeMille has again brought a true look at the determination of those who have for centuries fought to survive.
mostly recommended for an Israeli favorite readers
very detailed and well told story
while being a fiction it sounds very realistic
easy and enjoyable reading/listening
I love his stuff, have probably read, our listened to, more than a dozen of his books. The story of this one is so far fetched, I could hardly get myself to listen to it.
Nevermind, the rest of his stuff is great.
Superb narration. The end became a little over the top but it was a great education. I suggest you write down the names of the characters in the first few chapters or you may be befuddled by who is who and where they fit in. I've loved almost all of the author's books.
DeMille can be hugely entertaining. This is a good, not excellent effort on his part. That said, there's a good story in this book and it comes out at a good pace. No slow, dull parts, which makes for an entertaining listen.
This is an excellent book. The narration by Dick Hill is spot on. The story has a lot of interesting turns and the reader will not be disappointed,
Given the hours I spend in the car a week. This is the only option.
Great insight into the Jewish history and Israelite DeMille does a great job on his books
Good story, a bit far fetched, but lovable.
Absolutely, have about five of his now, excellent writer.
Great - actionn packed - lots of characters and even though it took place a a while in the past - it felt current
