In light of recent events, it was a little spooky listening to this book. I felt a part of the events. I was taken in by the wonderful writting. The past ten years made more sense to me than ever before. The characters are so real and I will listen again I'm sure.

Patterson is a rare left-of-center spy novelist. Moustaches do not twirl, eyes do not blaze, evil-doers do not act like arcade targets. Still. He treads the forsaken Holy Land north of Israel with care. He includes a smart strong woman, and this is welcoming and refreshing. She is an archaeologist in the shattered bones of a Roman outpost, and the symbolism is not lost.
The end is the one chosen by a grownup, not a silly Brad Thor ending, and Patterson feels the loss as more gallons of blood fill a never sated land.
Dennis Boutsikaris is a poor choice; his voice rises to a picccolo when he reads women and a wail when he does women in distress.
