Thought it was time I recommended another book that I've enjoyed. This one is a contemporary suspense, and it's absolutely wonderful! Terry Brennan takes history and makes it come alive as he ties it in with this present day story that could be taken right from today's newspapers.
Not only is the story a great read, but there's a realism to his writing that puts you right in the setting with the characters. I felt like I could see Jerusalem and New York City and the other places where his characters find themselves. Terry Brennan is a masterful story teller!
