Publisher's Summary

For centuries, historians have speculated that the Queen of Sheba is nothing more than a seductive legend; but when undercover agent Omar Zagouri finds a tomb in a tunnel beneath Jerusalem, he unearths cryptic clues that may lead to the queen's final resting place.
This discovery, if authentic, could throw into question the governmental claim to the Holy Land - and prove the Bible false. Wealthy collectors, ruthless archaeologists, and officials from Egypt, Ethiopia, Israel, and Yemen scramble to find and lay claim to the secret site.
Dr. Richard Lyon of Brown University, the world's leading expert on the queen, is found murdered in his office, setting off a chain of deadly events. Omar desperately works to piece together the puzzle to locate the queen's burial ground, fearing another assassination will take place. He teams up with one of Lyon's protégées as well as with his ex-girlfriend, agent Mia Golding, in order to unravel the truth about the queen, expose a murderer, and reveal a timeless story of love, revenge, and sacrifice.

Well researched historical thriller

Find Sheba is an enjoyable, well researched book. Switching between current times and 1000BC the book tells the story of Solomon and The Queen of Sheba (of Biblical fame) and then those searching for her tomb. As multiple nationalities claim her as theirs and her resting place the discovery of where she is buried, and if in fact the story of David and Solomon is true, has implcations for the powder keg that is the modern middle east.

Moore works well with the different nationalities, building tension between them. The swapping between the two timelines compliment one another as relations in one foreshadow or echo revelations in the other.

Bon Shaw is enjoyable to listen to as a narrator, although not highly memorable. The deep voice makes for easy listening. Characters aren't greatly differentiated, but emotion and inflection are there to help build the story. Wouldn't hesitate to pick another book narrated by Shaw.
