Publisher's Summary

When Jack Goodrich, a teacher at the American University in Cairo, is shown a sword thought to have belonged to the Prophet Muhammad, it seems at first that all his dreams have come true. Actually, it is the beginning of his worst nightmare.

A dangerous movement within the ranks of fundamentalist Islam is planning to put a new Caliph on the throne. To do this, they require the sword - and they will stop at nothing to get it.

Only the strange, beautiful woman known as Scheherazade can help Jack. Together they must decide what to do with the sword and try to prevent the destruction of the world as we know it.

    "Daniel Easterman - The Sword"

    I have read several of Daniel Eastermans books and found them very enjoyable. He writes well researched thrillers (in the style of Frederick Forsyth) and this book, "The Sword", doesn't disappoint.

    The narrator, Sean Barrett is terrific. He has a clear pronunciation and his control of arabic and various british accents is excellent.

    Highly recommended.

    "Harrowing thriller"

    A really good but upsetting listen at times. It graphically depicts suicide bombing and the ruthlessness of fundamentalism. At times the desciptions were almost too vivid but the courage of the main charecters kept you going. It also ends out ok in the end, a great read that makes you think and cry.
