Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Robert Whitlow returns with an international legal drama that speaks to critical issues of our day.

“You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation....”

During a terrorist attack near the Western Wall in Jerusalem, a courageous mother sacrifices her life to save her four-year-old daughter, leaving behind a grieving husband and a motherless child.

Hana Abboud, a Christian Arab Israeli lawyer trained at Hebrew University, typically uses her language skills to represent international clients for an Atlanta law firm. When her boss is contacted by Jakob Brodsky, a young Jewish lawyer pursuing a lawsuit on behalf of the woman’s family under the US Anti-Terrorism laws, he calls on Hana’s expertise to take point on the case. After careful prayer, she joins forces with Jakob, and they quickly realize the need to bring in a third member for their team, an Arab investigator named Daud Hasan, based in Israel.

To unravel the case, this team of investigators travels from the streets of Atlanta to the alleys of Jerusalem, a world where hidden motives thrive, the risk of death is real, and the search for truth has many faces. What they uncover will forever change their understanding of justice, heritage, and what it means to be chosen for a greater purpose.

Thank you Robert Whitlow

Thank you for showing the world that a page turning, fast action story can be written without using bad language. A sign of integrity and intelligence.
I wish more authors would realize that bad language detracts from the story and shows up the authors limited vocabulary.
This was my first book with this author. I plan to read many more of his books. Thelma Bontrager.

Whitlow just gets better and better...

I've read all Robert Whitlow's books with appreciation, and probably have rated them with 5 stars. This one deserves more.

I am left, after listening to the audible version, asking myself, "How did he do that?"

How did the author develop such complex characters, and yet keep them so easy to identify with? How did he make such a complex story, with international situations that I've never navigated, yet not confuse me? How did he start me into this story with so little trust for attractions and perceptions, and end with relief in finding places anchors could hold?

I am grateful that Whitlow never has some swaggering character reveal how trendy he/she is with crude vocabulary. How refreshing to have romantic attractions explored with some initial reservations rather than people dealing with their jumbled, scorched feelings as they find out about each other in the aftermath of biological passion.

There must be a decision made by an author about how many readers will be lost if characters who are sold out to Christ have that part of their lives shown clearly, in times of prayer or decision or danger. I am grateful that Robert Whitlow is no coward in this area.

I wonder how many readers have actually felt God's peace or approval or call in the ways main character, Hana, does? For those who have, this book will be a treasure in identifying with that special joy in one's unique purpose. For those who have not, may they hunger and seek that incomparable sense of belonging.

This story ended when it should. However, I cared about the journeys of these characters so much that I am sorry to let them go. How I would appreciate walking alongside the believer who begins a new spiritual chapter and makes the discoveries that remind me of my own growth in Christ.
