A worthy and intelligent sequel to Abraham's Bones, this book is a creative combination of a mystery, history, politics, archeology, journalism and mythology skillfully wrapped up to amuse and entertain as a first rate thriller. You think you can see where some of the leads are heading while reading the book, but sorry-- the plot is built better than that!!!!! What I am looking for in a thriller is a rollercoaster ride from the first to the last page and for some deviation from the standard thriller model. I definitely received it in droves from The Relic. It is a bit of Indiana Jones meets Dan Brown developed in a setting of modern Arabic-Israeli-American relations in the Middle East with a parallel plot set during the Biblical times. I loved it. My absolute favorite character in the book is Dr. Siedman, a world renowned archeologist, who is writing a book, sinking into Alzheimer's like into a quicksand, and is providing a vital link and the constantly unraveling clues that connect the past and present mysteries of The Relic. Not saying any more here, because I hate spoiler reviews. For the cherry on top, the book cover is a total gem!
