I was a little afraid that with 20+ hours of listening I would find this book boring. But I loved every minute of it. The characters are lively and well drawn and you just have to keep listening to the unfolding of the story. Sussman manages to write not only an intelligent and suspenseful thriller but gives you something to think about long after the end of the book

I thought I was in store for another Da Vinci Code clone but I was completely wrong. This is a superbly written, fast paced novel with well drawn characters and a terrific mystery(ies). Further adding to the depth of this novel is its setting in a richly crafted milieu of modern Middle East tensions. The story has several twists that are unexpected (and not the least bit contrived) and like all truly great mysteries, the clues were there for the reader all along. At the unexpected and very satisfying ending, I immediately went looking for more by Mr. Sussman.
Gordon Griffin is a superb performer in the pantheon of Barbara Rosenblatt and only a handful of others. He brings the characters to life and adds quality to an already first rate story.

about the use of bad language. The author had a shortage of adjectives and used the F word far too frequently, much more than was necessary for the plot.This was unfortunate because the plot was excellent and I enjoyed moving backwards and forwards between the centuries and the different places, but I DID NOT enjoy the expletives. I found these totally unnecessary and if I had been warned beforehand would not have purchased it. I am not narrow minded but enough is enough of anything.

Brilliant and very topical book and a brilliant reader to compliment it. I usually only listen to books when driving - I had to continue with this one on my ipod at home.
