John Madison is an art dealer who recently lost his brother Samuel in a car crash. John's world begins to crumble as he deals with the guilt of the accident and the betrayal of a friend. Before long he is caught up in a game of intrigue which points to the origin of alchemy.

The Witch of Babylon is a fast paced thriller that moves from New York to Iraq as thieves search for priceless antiquities. D.J. McIntosh has done a phenomenal amount of research on ancient Mesopotamia. As in all adventure based books, you have to suspend disbelief occasionally as the action heats up. However, McIntosh handles these tough spots better than Dan Brown. I didn't have to say "oh c'mon..." even once. This was a great read for the last long weekend of the summer and I look forward to the second book in the trilogy.
