#1 New York Times Bestseller
An ancient relic is unearthed during an archaeological dig. A Minnesota college professor is keeping a secret that could change the world’s history as we know it. For Virgil Flowers, the link between the two is inescapable—and his investigation, more dangerous and far-reaching than he can possibly imagine.
Virgil messes with the Mossad
Another great book from Sanford. I enjoy the Flowers books so much that I've switched my allegiance from Lucas Davenport. Good plotting and nice to see a cop who is not to the right of Attila the Hun. Sanford has created a good count-balance to Davenport in Flowers' laconic way of investigating crimes and as before, we meet some interesting characters along the way. Could it be that Virgil is thinking about taking the plunge again?
It is unfortunate that Sandford can't keep his extreme left wing politics out of his books. Being a retired law enforcement officer the story line was interesting, not life like, but entertaining. What really makes his books disappointing is that even though he does the investigating that would take a team of detectives to do, the steps taken are not unlike those that may be followed. However his interjection of liberal views and opinions make the character unbelievable and therefore makes the books not worth reading or listening to.
