I love this quest story and the fact that research has been done to support the plot. Sarah is a flawed heroine, fighting her privileged background and her broken relationship with her father. This has a lasting effect on her ability to trust friends and colleagues, especially the men. The whole premise of the story requires the reader to accept the idea that a man believes strongly enough in the various myths and legends that surround the appearance of a Jewish Messiah who will bring Israel to a position of world power, vanquishing assorted enemies and reclaiming their historical kingdom. To achieve his aim he has to obtain various relics including Solomon's ring in order to rebuild Solomon's Temple. Sarah and Daniel have to identify the mad man and his team, protect the relics and work out how to avert all-out warfare in the Middle East. H
This book would be suitable for anybody that liked treasure hunts and desert life stories. Obviously King Solomon was seen to be a very revered character in biblical times. There is mileage of material written about the myth or reality of his vast wealth and of it's whereabouts might be. This book will make the reader think and possibly believe too. I recommend it.
