StoneHouse Ink, 2013

An ancient legend is reborn . . . One that might prove the Bible false. 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.

Archaeology is such a fascinating subject. Combine that with murder and intrigue and romance and you have the makings of a great read. Moore has created such a story here. With fascinating undercurrents and romantic tension, the mystery of the queen of Sheba unfolds. Jade, an American graduate student arrives in Egypt prepared to work on her thesis only to discover that her beloved professor's death was not an accident and that a discovery in Israel may turn everything she thought she knew on it's head. Meanwhile, Omar, an agent for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage and Ancient Artifacts, having helped discover the tomb that could change everything, sets off for Yemen on another assignment hoping to see his former girlfriend, only to find much more than he bargained for.  With enough twists and turns to satisfy most readers as well as some fascinating background and setting, I can heartily recommend this book.
