Maier constructs his thriller as a credible, real-world incident, incorporating factual archaeological findings and extensive history. The plotline explores the conflict between Christianity and Islam (taking time to delve into ideological differences) and ultimately adopts a message of harmony and goodwill. In that way, the book agrees with Scripture: "Make every effort to live in peace with all men" (Heb 12:14).
The characters of the novel are true to life in many ways: speech pattern, cultural interaction, and attitudes. Maier's delivery is intelligent and well-researched. However, in my estimation, the dialogue often fails to drive the story, and although the characters are believable, they are shallow. Though marketed as a fast-paced, action-oriented plot, the prose frequently lapses into staleness and cliches.
The book is the third installment in Maier's Skeleton Series, but it also functions as a standalone book. Built on a sturdy premise, but burdened by clunky storytelling, I recommend the book primarily to fans of theological fiction. Daniel Morton, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
