It's always enjoyable when you read a book where it's apparent that the author has done a great deal of research, and yet doesn't ram it down your throat. Subtle details of location and customs ring true, particularly as real events and people are woven into the story.

Ok I loved this series last summer but I took a break from it and with this book I was struggling to get back into it as much as I was then. I still like the characters but a lot of it went over my head which I think added to me not being engaged. I was just really bored to be honest. Still love Holmes though. This is just a little bump in the road don’t worry about it.

I don't remember having this problem with the book, but with the audiobook I had a difficult time remembering that this book took place between the first and second books.

Fast-paced with lots of twists. Filled with references to historical places and events in Jerusalem.

Another wonderful story - this time, in the Middle East.

I can't put my finger on it, but something in this book spoke to me. I think it's seeing the relationship between Holmes and Russel deepening. I also really liked the relationship between the two ancillary characters as well as their interactions with Holmes and Russell.

This is my favorite book in the series.

Funny enough, I thought I had already read this book. But once I got into it, I discovered that I hadn't. For the record, I'm glad I finally got around to it. Russell and Holmes are fun and charming, as usual, and I love King's portrait of Palestine.
