Deep beneath the ancient city of Jerusalem lies a secret that knows no bounds, devastating enough to reach across time. History's greatest spy story begins here.
For a millennium, Jerusalem's Temple Mount has been at the center of war and death. There's never been a time when blood wasn't spilled upon this ancient, sacred site. Flash forward to present-day Jerusalem, where 35-year-old Israeli counterterrorism agent Sam Deker has just thwarted the most recent act of violence--an attempt by radical Palestinians to blow up the Dome of the Rock mosque and pin the blame on right-wing Orthodox Jews. The threat, however, is a diversion. Deker himself is the real target. He is captured and taken to neighboring Jordan, where he is tortured because of his deep knowledge of Israel's most closely guarded state secret.
Deker escapes with his comrade Uri Elezar, making it all the way to the border, only to be taken down at the banks of the Jordan River. This time, however, Deker wakes up in the middle of the ancient Israelite army on the eve of its historic siege of Jericho. Deker doesn't know if he is dead, in some torture-induced psychosis, or really back in time. But General Bin-Nun has declared a colossal holy war, and he's sending Deker and Elezar on a dangerous mission to spy on the Promised Land in advance of the invasion.
For Deker, it's his only hope to escape this genocidal hell. Then he finds himself in the arms of a beautiful enemy named Rahab, caught in a web of deadly betrayal, as he struggles to unlock the truth, secure Israel's future and his own, and save the twenty-first century from The Promised War.

Its an interesting re...

It's an interesting read, especially for people who enjoy the 'could-have-been' historical fantasies. This one keeps you guessing until the end what's reality and what's fantasy - you think you're sure! and then... The big downside of this book is actually it's length: even though the edition I've read has 300+ pages, which seems average, it's fairly large, widely spaced print. By trying to make this a fast paced action thriller, the whole story was compromised, it felt rushed and compressed. There was much more potential and I felt shortchanged. In whole, I enjoyed the ride - it was just too short!

I didn'y enjot this book nearly as much as I did the Atlantis trilogy. I couldn't quite get into the concept of the main characters going back in time to help fight the battle of Jericho. Hopefully, his next book will be more like his first 3.

I found this a very average book. An interesting premise but it wasn't told in the best way. A bit convoluted and at times frustrating. Good for a read only if there's nothing else available.
