The thrilling new novel in the number one New York Times - bestselling series.
In Israel, a man clutching a backpack searches desperately for a boat. In Minnesota, Virgil Flowers gets a message from Lucas Davenport: You're about to get a visitor. It's an Israeli cop, and she's tailing a man who's smuggled out an extraordinary relic - a copper scroll revealing startling details about the man known as King Solomon.
Wait a minute, laughs Virgil. Is this one of those Da Vinci Code deals? The secret scroll, the blockbuster revelation, the teams of murderous bad guys? Should I be boning up on my Bible verses?
He looks at the cop. She's not laughing. As it turns out, there are very bad men chasing the relic, and they don't care who's in the way or what they have to do to get it. Maybe Virgil should start praying.

Still a fan, but...
I enjoyed the humor and actually LOL'd a few times. But for some reason the baddies just weren't very bad and the chase scene just ran out of gas. I am usually able (and willing) to suspend belief if I am invested in a story, but I found myself shaking my head and saying 'no way', one too many times.
The thing I liked least (read: hated!) was every time Virgil spoke to his maybe girl-friend and called her "Ma" . That was just wrong...
There were too many characters who were just not well-developed.
I did enjoy Anwan. I would actually like to see him again.
I think Eric Christian Olsen from NCIS LA would make a good Virgil. I would love to see a Virgil movie, just not this one...
Virgil deserves better.
