For centuries, historians have theorized the Queen of Sheba as only a seductive legend, and scholars have debated over the legitimacy of King David or King Solomon. When undercover Israeli agent, Omar Zagouri, stumbles onto a tomb in Northern Jerusalem he unknowingly finds the final clue that threatens to overthrow government claim to the Holy Land, pits wealthy collectors against one another, and sends ruthless archaeologists scrambling to find the queen’s secret burial place. An assassination attempt on the Coptic Pope, His Holiness, Patriarch Stephanus II, is only the first in the chain of lethal crimes. Omar must find a way to prevent the greatest discovery of the century from becoming the most deadly.


When I finished reading the first chapter, I knew this was going to be good and well-written. There are three different points of view that we follow throughout the book. I thought the author did a really good job in organizing these so that it was easy to follow what was going on. I also liked the way she paced her information. At the beginning I was wondering why it would be such a big deal to know exactly where Queen Sheba was buried and then her character asks the same thing and gets her answer. Perfect timing.
The plot was pretty well paced. There were a few lulls for me and a few places where some of the information felt a little unnecessary to me. Besides these though, there were some fairly intense and suspenseful moments, but it wasn't tense the whole time, which was also nice. Sometimes I can get a little stressed out reading and this didn't do that to me. I wasn't exactly sure who each character could trust all the time and who was actually going to turn out to be a love interest. I also wasn't sure exactly what would be found about Queen Sheba in the end. I love when stories can surprise me, or at least keep me guessing.
I really liked all the characters. I liked how each one was introduced into the story and their back story. I wasn't quite sure how much each character was going to be involved, who would end up together, and who would make it out at the end. It was definitely suspenseful in that regard.
If you're looking for a good Adult Suspense novel, then I would definitely recommend picking this one up!
