Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Excellent book. Best book all year,"

    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,

    "Insight"
    Would you consider the audio edition of By the Rivers of Babylon to be better than the print version?

    Given the hours I spend in the car a week. This is the only option.


    Any additional comments?

    Great insight into the Jewish history and Israelite DeMille does a great job on his books

    "great book"
    What did you love best about By the Rivers of Babylon?

    Good story, a bit far fetched, but lovable.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nelson DeMille? Why or why not?

    Absolutely, have about five of his now, excellent writer.

    "Faithful DeMille follower deeply disappointed"
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    This Scott Brick narration was whiny to the point of distracting. I'm a Scott Brick fan, but this one left me cold.


    Any additional comments?

    I tried to listen to this book twice, but didn't get past part 1 either time. Clearly not DeMille's best effort in my opinion.
