Overview

The Dome of the Rock, situated on the Temple Mount, a site sacred to three of the world's great religions and claimed by both Israel and Palestine, has suddenly become the subject of growing Internet chatter among terrorist groups being monitored by HaMossad, Israel's elite intelligence agency. Lev Novikov, a second generation agent with decades of experience, now finds himself facing a fresh challenge that threatens to rewrite history and turn the conflict in the Middle East inside out. With the help of technology journalist Karl Lustig, Lev and his team must quickly figure out the nature of the threat and neutralize it before catastrophe on an unprecedented scale strikes Jerusalem, the City of Peace. The Dome is a fast-paced drama that explores the nature of extremism and raises questions about where politics and religion are leading the world.

REVIEW BY ALAN CARUBA, VETERAN BOOK CRITIC ON BOOKVIEWS
"Lior Samson is nowhere near as famous as John Le Carré, but he has written a suspenseful and timely novel,...fast-paced,...filled with the way computers, programming, and other technical black magic combine to pose a major threat and are used as well to spot and neutralize it. ...This novel takes you behind the scenes of modern spycraft and terrorism. One gets a sense of what life is like in Israel these days as a cast of characters, some family, some linked by a fallen hero, some master spies, must neutralize a terrifying deadly scheme. I cannot say enough good things about this novel and recommend that you check it out and purchase it."

    Highly Recommended

    The Dome is an intricate, fast-paced thriller. The premise is, I think, unique, and everyone may not buy it, but it makes for a well-constructed plot. The characters are fully developed and interesting, in some cases even endearing. The book is a thoroughly enjoyable read, and I recommend it to lovers of the genre.
