The premise of this book, along with the summary on the back cover made me really excited, but unfortunately, I didn't think it turned out to be all it could be. Admittedly, this is the 4th book in a series, so I was missing a lot of the back story, but I didn't feel like there was very much character development and it wasn't until the last third that it actually got exciting. The storyline is the use of a Copper Scroll (one of the actual Dead Sea Scrolls) as a treasure map to find the lost treasures of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. It could have been a Jewish Da Vinci Code, but the author just doesn't have the literary pacing skills of Dan Brown. I will probably read at least one more of his previous books, but I won't be rushing to the library to get it.
