"In wartime," Winston Churchill wrote, "truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies." For Britain's counterintelligence operations, this meant finding the unlikeliest agents imaginable - including a history professor named Alfred Vicary.

Very few authors today can write a series of books with continuity with each other and at the same time each one can stand on its own without feeling lost. Great plots. Engrossing and entertainig.

The background created was very detailed. The characters interesting and diverse. Sometimes confusing as to whom they are. All together it is an engrossing book and keeps you in suspense all the way until the end. All the build up and drops the ball at the end. Rushed through that does not compare to all the rest of the material.I do recommend this book, even though Mr. Cussler has better.

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.

Even though it has a slow start, it moves along. All of the sudden it picks up speed and it is not until the end that you stop running. It sometimes is highly descriptive of the scene making it loose it's speed. Too many characters, but necessary in order to unfold the plot. Very captivating and enjoyable "read". I found the ending unfinished as you do not know what the opinions are from the main characters as to the message, making it cofusing. All in all it is an enetertainig book giving you a lesson in History, Archeology and Human Nature, showing all the minuscia of the up-bringing of all humanity and the biased thinking ingrained in our lives. Good Lesson.

When you read the first character created by Mr. Silva, Michael Osborne, I expected a series, but alas, after the second volume, Mr. Silva pulled an ace from his sleeve and has created Gabriel Allon. Great reading, sophisticated prose, meticulous research of locations and events. He created a master restorer, planner and executioner. This is a one nighter, as you can't put this book down. Mr. Silva, please keep them coming.

In this epic thriller by popular British journalist and author Tom Knox, a secret lurks beneath blazing sands - triggering ritualistic slaughter and threatening the foun­dations of modern thought. When an archaeological dig in Kurdistan unearths a structure far older than Stonehenge or the Great Pyramids, British reporter Rob Lutrell rushes to the scene. But this intriguing assignment takes a turn for the worse when sabotage and murder cast a frightening shadow over the site.

When I saw it in catalog I noticed that it was the first book for this writer. I always like to read first works and follow through and watch how he develops in every new book. Mr. "Knox" started with a book at a higher level than other writers are now with several books in print, where research was extensive , highly entertaining and engrossing. I think that he may have a hard time trying to follow with another as good as this one. Great characters, prose and able to not get you confused or lost with all the characters, places and cultures. Great work. Thank you
