9780061470875: The Last Testament

From the Number One bestselling author of The Righteous Men comes this staggering religious conspiracy thriller. The Last Testament: It was written. It was lost. It will save us all.

April 2003: as the Baghdad Museum of Antiquities is looted, a teenage Iraqi boy finds an ancient scroll in a long-forgotten vault. He takes it and runs off into the night …

Several years later, at a peace rally in Jerusalem, the Israeli prime minister is about to sign a historic deal with the Palestinians. A man approaches from the crowd and seems to reach for a gun – bodyguards shoot him dead. But in his hand was a note, one he wanted to hand to the prime minister.

The shooting sparks a series of tit-for-tat killings which could derail the peace accord. Washington sends for trouble-shooter and peace negotiator Maggie Costello, after she thought she had quit the job for good. She follows a trail that takes her from Jewish settlements on the West Bank to Palestinian refugee camps, where she discovers the latest deaths are not random but have a distinct pattern. All the dead men are archaeologists and historians – those who know the buried secrets of the ancient past.

Menaced by fanatics and violent extremists on all sides, Costello is soon plunged into high-stakes international politics, the worldwide underground trade in stolen antiquities and a last, unsolved riddle of the Bible.

Review:

Praise for ‘The Righteous Men’ (HB):

‘The biggest challenger to Dan Brown’s crown … a highly charged, theologically accurate tale’ Mirror

‘Compulsive reading … successfully blends ancient teachings with the highly charged ways of the 21st century … bears all the hallmarks of a blockbuster’ Daily Express

‘The best thriller I’ve read in years.’ Piers Morgan

'More readable than The Da Vinci Code – the sense of menace is darker and the characters more believable' Esquire

April 2003: As his nation descends into chaos, an Iraqi boy loots an ancient clay tablet from a long-forgotten vault in the Baghdad Museum of Antiquities--unaware that his actions could ignite the war to end all wars. Years later, on the eve of a historic Israeli-Palestinian peace accord, bodyguards for Israel s prime minister gun down a possible assassin--and discover a blood-stained note clutched in the dead man s hand.
