The Last Secret of the Temple

ebook

An ancient secret threatens to unleash a modern war in this international-bestselling "thriller on par with the best literature out there" (James Rollins).

Jerusalem, 70 AD: As the invading Romans destroy the Holy Temple, a young Jewish boy is hidden away—chosen as the guardian of a great secret. And for seventy generations, the secret is kept safe . . .

But now, in order to ignite a new conflict between Israel and the Arab world, a Jewish radical is prepared to reveal what has been hidden for centuries. The only ones who can stop the coming bloodshed are a beautiful young Palestinian journalist and two detectives—one Israeli, one Egyptian—in an unlikely alliance.

As their separate searches for the truth intertwine, they discover there are some in this war-torn region who believe true peace can only be found in death . . .

Full of the detail and in-depth knowledge only a bestselling author and true-life archaeologist could deliver, this is a "tightly-plotted, richly-observed, thought-provoking thriller" (Raymond Khoury).

"Sussman, an archeologist, puts in plenty of satisfying twists and turns, and grounds the story in the violence and intrigue of the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict." —Publishers Weekly
