Reading this book, you cannot help but visualise the settings and a perfect Harrison Ford type movie! It is yet another "ripping yarn" from the proven author Charles Brokaw.(Lucifer code & Atlantis Code). This one moves quickly from China to the Himalayas to the Gaza Strip and Jerusalem with villains and heroes on every page. It does contain some serious research on linguistics which for fans of the recent TV series "The code" on the mystery of numbers, is an added draw.
This is escapist fiction at its best. I am open to reading anything from non fiction to serious literature, my weakness began with Jack Higgins and since then I have sort out authors that can provide a quick read with a good storyline that helps me pass my insommnia. This works and great fun to boot. The Temple Mount Code

I have to agree somewhat with the earlier one-star review I read. Having been given this as part of a 3-for-2 in Waterstones, the only positive I can draw is that technically, I didn't pay for it. Aside from a weak and somewhat incredulous plot (even for the genre), a series of one-dimensional "baddies" with cliched observations on the world, I have to say the problem with these books is the main character. Thomas Lourds is basically Robert Langdon (see Dan Brown) with a libido that Casanova would be proud of. A string of strong, highly intelligent women seem to just queue up to throw themselves under him as quickly as possible in a manner that makes these novels almost male fantasy and does them a massive disservice. In this case it is the beautiful, bright, finely trained agent Miriam plus the chafing super-rich Alice Volker who becomes one more notch on the Lourdes bedpost. Author Brokaw tries to pass off his cavalier attitude towards women and relationships by giving him a professorial view on gallantry that is demeaning.
The premise of this latest novel is weak, unexplored and tentative. Unfortunately, this is one novel that has been passed rather quickly to the charity shops; though I don't recommend it. Perhaps the author can improve his next offering...

Another fine Professor Lourd's adventure from Mr Brokaw.
A couple of errors- p.61 "cut off their heads and hands and mail them to their families",whereas p.125 "Their heads and feet were received by their families today".
P.419 "The choking haze filled the hallway,searing Mufarrij's lungs..."
From the context.it should have been Davari's.
Recommended.

A friend of mine read The Atlantis Code and found it so laughably bad that I felt compelled to read it too. It was utterly awful and showed great weaknesses both on the part of the author and his editor.
It was with a feeling of despair that I picked up the SECOND sequel in the form of The Temple Mount Code. I had very low expectations and it failed to meet them.
You can read Brokaw's series... but only for comic value.
Any and every writer has the freedom to write whatever they want and they should all have the opportunity to be published. That does not mean they should be published.

Usually what happens is that I buy a couple of books for the holidays but dont get a chance to read it until I get home because of the kids wanting to play in the pool etc.

Not this time however. I started reading this on the plane and couldnt put it down until it was finished.

Not too indepth or heavy to get into and there are times when you want more of an explanation for historical references etc.

But all in all a dam good enjoyable read. That much so that I will buy the Atlantis & Lucifer Code books

This book is a must for those who enjoy a bit of fact turned into fiction. Lots of action making your imagination run wild, full of colour, gore (in places..)reasonably good plot, characters larger than life and exotic location around the world. What can I say except that I'm enjoying this book but get irritated at the sloppy American spellings of words. For example "maneuver" instead of "manoeuvre", to list just one!

I am at present reading this book. For me it is just pure escapism. I have to remind myself of that so as to keep reading it. Anyone who would choose to believe half of what he puts forward as truth and fact would seriously need to get a life. The main character chaffes on my brain. Can he really be....? His constant attack on the Christian Faith and Catholicism in particular is like a long playing record. I would like to see him write on another faith and treat it in a similar way. Or is it that it is open season on the Christian Faith because as a school child he got his ear twisted by an oveer zealous priest? Mine was severly twisted by lay teachers - I dont go around looking for all lay teachers ( me being one in my time) to be put to the rack.

A fairly good page turner, with a well crafted plot.
However, I do wish the author would buy himself a thesaurus, the use of English is extremely unimaginative to say the very least, and I lost count of the number of times that I had to read that awful word 'gotten', sometimes appearing up to three times on a single page.
