The fifth Dan Delaney mystery has the former detective and spy-catcher and his family on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land which goes wrong from the moment they arrive. A plot is underway to desecrate sacred sites and incite conflict between the three great religions who call Jerusalem home. The Israeli authorities are determined to prevent another terrorist outrage. Old enemies put Delaney's family in the cross-hairs of their planned outrages.
Dame Fiona Kidman, current winner of the Ngaio Marsh Crime Award for This Mortal Boy: ‘A vivid inside view of Israel as well as rattling along with a fast-paced crime story.’
Sir Roger Hall, premier NZ playwright: ‘Cracking yarn.’
Graeme Lay, bestselling author of James Cook novels: ‘The tautly structured plot of this thriller grips the reader from the first to the final page. Set in the so-called Holy Land, the novel’s characters and themes are as meaningful today as they were during the 1970s setting. Jerusalem – spiritual home to Jews, Moslems and Christians – is vividly evoked and forms a vibrant backdrop to the conflicts and tribulations of the Delaney family.’
David Hill: ‘A darned good read’, National Programme, 11 September 2020
