Synopsis:

A mother's fatal shot. A daughter's deadly choice.

In Israel, archaeologist Grace Madison shoots her daughter's abductor. Seconds later, a handsome shepherd  drops from the sky to kill a second assassin. Their world crumbles in two blinks of an eye. Unbeknownst to them, a fierce evil is destroying everything in its path—the unconventional path Grace and Maggie, a hydrologist, take as they struggle to right a wrong as old as time. But they soon discover time is running out. A vortex of intrigue and espionage threatens to sweep away everything and everyone they hold dear, extinguishing old flames even as it ignites new loves.

When the scale tips precariously toward disaster in the Middle East and beyond, family and friends with secrets of their own are exposed and millions of lives hang in the balance. Mother and daughter realize nothing is as it seems.Even each other. Because choosing what's right is all that's left.

Contemporary suspense with a thread of romance, written from the crossroads of faith and espionage.


Review:

This book reminded me of the movie Reds 2-maybe because it was showing like non-stop while I was reading it! More than likely, because of the 'spies' coming out of retirement to help! The books reads pretty quickly after it gets started, and it is a pretty snarled web of a mystery. But the author does a great job of allowing the reader to keep guessing and wondering til the end. I can definitely see it as a TV series or a movie! It is great to see strong women characters in a predominantly male field (thrillers and Middle East) and if you're looking for an interesting mystery, pick this one up today!
