Overview

The Temple Mount Code by Charles Brokaw

An old friend summons dashing linguistics professor Thomas Lourds to Jerusalem to examine an ancient text. But Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, also wants the same document. Khamenei and many others believe that the book contains a secret that will allow its owner to rule all of Islam and wage a Global Jihad the likes of which has never been seen before.

Arriving in Jerusalem, Lourds discovers that his friend has been murdered and his apartment ransacked. With the help of Miriam Abata, a beautiful Iranian-American Jewish graduate student, he races against the clock to seek the dangerous document: Lourds seeks to save civilization while his enemies hope to destroy it.

Continuing the New York Times bestselling series that includes The Atlantis Code and The Lucifer Code, The Temple Mount Code will appeal to readers interested in history and treasure hunting in the Holy Land and is perfect for fans of Dan Brown, Brad Meltzer, James Rollins, and Steve Berry.

The Temple Mount Code is a thriller. Charles Brokaw, who wrote The Temple Mount Code, is a New York Times bestselling author. This is the third in Brokaw¿s ¿Code¿ series. Before this, he wrote The Atlantis Code and The Lucifer Code. But this is the first book I¿ve read by him. The story starts off with Professor Thomas Lourds heading to a dig in China. He¿s not there very long, just long enough to make a discovery, before he heads off to Jerusalem at the request of a friend. And from there to the end of the book, it¿s a race to stay alive and save people around him. Oh, and to find what everyone is looking for and willing to kill for ¿ Mohammad¿s Koran. The dig in China is very interesting, but once Lourds heads out to find his friend who seems to be in trouble, the pace and action races. It reminded me of The Da Vinci Code, as far as the scholarly knowledge Lourds has, but it also reminded me of a thriller movie with the fast pace, chases, fights, and exotic settings. Since Professor Lourds has starred in Brokaw¿s other books, you can guess that he will survive, but it¿s all bets off on everyone else. There are also some formidable women in the book. I especially liked Miriam. Lourds is smart like Robert Langdon, can fight like Jason Bourne, and loves like James Bond. Roll them together and you¿ve got a moo-vie! (That¿s my prediction, anyway.)

I really enjoyed this book and have put Charles Brokaw on my list of reading. The book moves along and has lots of twists and turns. A good read.

I love the fact that there are so many interesting locations and cultures in these books. Lourds is quite the character and has to be fun to write about. His luck with women and bewilderment are great comic relief for the constant tensions of his chase.

Some of the descriptions add nothing to the storie. The book could be reduced by at least twenty percent .
