Compulsively exciting Middle East thriller by international No. 1 bestselling author
Nelson DeMille is one of America's most popular and bestselling authors, and a new book from him is a keenly awaited event. A former US Army lieutenant who served in Vietnam, he lives in Long Island, New York.
In his first military thriller, originally published in 1978, DeMille focuses on a peace delegation flying on two Concordes from Israel to New York for a UN conference that, if successful, will bring calm to the Middle East. A bomb planted onboard by a Palestinian terrorist group forces the planes to crash-land on the site of an ancient Babylonian fortification. The small group of survivors, armed only with a handful of weapons, makes a stand against a highly trained group of militant Palestinians, while the Israeli government mounts a rescue. The action sequences and pacing keep the story moving, as strong key characters undergo changes in both their personal and professional viewpoints. Several subplots, highlighting a group of supporting players, will keep listeners riveted. Reader Scott Brick, winner of an SF Audie and several Earphones Awards, has an easy style and flow that will bring the story and characters to life. Recommended.-Tim Daniels, Georgia State Univ.
