In 930 CE, the first sanctioned Bible was penned. In 1953 while being transported from Syria part of it ends up missing. While this was happening some ancient scrolls were found the Dead Sea area and were also immediately stolen.
Decades later during a political battle between the US, foreign governments and radical extremists the US finds its self under siege. Americans on American soil are beings killed by suicide bombers. President Nunn requests special ops team, OPSIG, (Operations Support Intelligence Group) which includes FBI profiler, Karen Vail, Special Forces, Hector DeSantos and FBI terrorism, Aaron Uziel, to find the documents and to find and kill the terrorists who are wreaking havoc on American soil.
This is one of the best books I have read in the past few months. Although this book is fiction...according to the news, this could easily be a reality. It is filled with terrorism, dirty bombs, corrupt politicians and the Mossad, plus it has a lot of action and intrigue that will definitely keep you turning the pages. With all the plots and subplots you will quickly learn there is more to the situation than meets the eye, especially when politics are involved. In addition to all that, what is not to love about Karen Vail? Her sense of humor in the face of danger will cause you to laugh. I highly recommend this book.
