Lod Airport, Israel: two Concorde jets take off for a UN conference that will finally bring peace to the Middle East. Covered by F-14 fighters, accompanied by security men, the planes carry warriors, pacifists, lovers, enemies, dignitaries—and a bomb planted by a terrorist mastermind.

Suddenly they’re forced to crash-land at an ancient desert site. Here with only a handful of weapons, the men and women of the peace mission must make a desperate stand against an army of crack Palestinian commandos—while the Israeli authorities desperately attempt a rescue mission. In a land of blood and tears, in a windswept place called Babylon, it will be a battle of bullets and courage, and a war to the last death.

    " This was Nelson DeMille's first novel and I enjoyed this book more than some of his more recent books. He can take a complex subject and write a story that not only educates but entertains. I always find myself thinking about the story and characters long after I have finished the novel. "
