Robert Stone receives critical acclaim for the philosophical layers of his writing, as well as the intensity of his multidimensional characters. Setting this deeply provocative, best-selling novel in modern day Jerusalem, Stone puts a disillusioned American journalist adrift in the supercharged atmosphere at the end of the millennium.

Christopher Lucas, unsure of his own beliefs, is wandering through Jerusalem, working on an article about religious mania. When he meets Sonia Barnes, dusky nightclub singer, devoted Sufi and mystic, he is entranced. As Sonia helps Lucas meet some of the visionaries and gurus who fill the city, the two suddenly find that they have become pawns in a fanatical bombing plot. Its target is no less than the Temple Mount, the ancient city's holiest site.

Through visions ranging from Armageddon to Paradise, Damascus Gate captures the whirlwinds of spiritual fervor that swirl through Jerusalem. George Guidall's narration adds dramatic shadings to the physical and psychological landscapes Lucas traverses in this crossroads of nations. Download and start listening now!

    " I tried to read this when I was 18, then had to put it aside until I had studied a little more on world religions. Stone has done his homework and isn't interested in waiting for readers to catch up. I wish his story had maintained that level of attention to detail (the climax is fairly incomprehensible, with jumbled images and a relatively weak aftermath). "
