Anything could happen on that hostile road that wound its way through rugged desert terrain and where, on narrow trails with dangerous cliffs and sheer drops into oblivion, robbers hid in caves waiting to attack unsuspecting travelers, no matter who they were. So when the day came that King Herod would be leaving his winter palace in New Jericho and going back up to Jerusalem, it just seemed to Keefay that following behind Herod and his armed detachment from the 10th Roman Legion was the safest way to get up to the city to do business and sign new contracts. But coming back home from Jerusalem was a different story. He'd be going down the Road of Blood. Alone. His family and his wife Abigail begged him not to go. Anything could happen. But he wouldn't listen. In business, no risk, no reward. But the worst did happen. Chased, beaten, robbed, left for dead, and abandoned, suddenly from around the bend rode a stranger.

This fictional story has been carefully constructed to bring the setting of Jericho and Jerusalem, and the trail to life. If you have ever toured and hiked around the area, the rugged terrain descriptions are interesting and bring back memories of the area. My opinion is that the narrative has been extremely outlined before it was penned, in order to bring the history into alignment in as many details as possible. I enjoy these types of stories since they bring back memories of how it was to walk through the land in Israel as a tourist and what the political strife that still exists to this day has yielded in the area.
