FIVE STARS: 5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Read " What a brilliant read, combining the fascinating world of Alexander with more recent history, this is the kind of book I couldn't put down. The finish is nail biting, and you aren't always sure of the character's motivations. If you love history and you're interested in recent events in the Middle East with journalists, archaeologists and the CIA thrown in then I couldn't recommend this book more highly."
