A journalist is murdered in Jerusalem’s Armenian Cathedral. Detective Arieh Ben-Roi turns for help to an old friend, Inspector Yusuf Khalifa. Khalifa agrees to do some digging. However one lead seems out of place as there is an apparent link to a decades old missing persons case in Egypt. As their investigations intertwine, the detectives are drawn ever deeper into a sinister web of violence, abuse, corporate malpractice and international terrorism. And at its heart lies a three thousand year-old mystery that has already taken two lives, and will soon be claiming more.
This is a brilliant action thriller. The characters have great depth. Also the storyline is gripping and flows well. Moreover, the history information adds an extra layer.
This is the fourth and final book by this author before his death.
