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.

A good story, but a lot of characters

I always have enjoyed this author, and especially this narrator. I listened to this book, and it was an exciting story. Even though I enjoyed it, I got very confused with all the characters. I still don't know who some of them are. There were so many names and nationalites that I got confused. But that being said, it had me on the edge of my seat. Even if you can't remember all the characters, you get the gist of the story, and it's very exciting and entertaining. I recommend it. Maybe take notes....

Non stop action ...

I guess some people found it hard to keep track of all the characters. I had no such problem. I found the pace a little hectic at times and had to take a break just to catch my breath. It is a very intense book, but very well written and surprisingly (especially for this genre) believable. He accurately captures a lot of the politics of the middle east ... not easy to do. I lived there for a decade and the politics are incredibly complicated if you haven't lived them ... but DeMille succeeds where so many authors have failed. Highly recommend this book if you like your action mixed with politics and complex characters.
