Good thriller. Cotton Malone is paid a visit by his hysterical ex-wife who tells him that their son has been kidnapped and that he has something the kidnappers want. What follows is a fast-paced thriller that involves the search for the Library of Alexandria, a hero's quest, plenty of people running around shooting other people or getting shot at themselves, the US government, the Israeli and Saudi governments, a plot to assassinate the US President (but who are the traitors?), a group of international power tycoons who are members of the Order of the Fleece, and an interesting angle on some theories about the Bible and where Abraham's descendants are supposed to have been. Add to the above, lots of political intrigue so that you don't know who to trust from one chapter to another, and you have a boiling page turner.
