Compared favorably to Dan Brown's novels, Sam Bourne's The Last Testament takes aim at a conflict that's endured since Biblical times. In Jerusalem, the shooting of an innocent man sets off a chain of killings that threatens to derail a historic deal between the Israelis and Palestinians. Maggie Costello is called in to negotiate the peace, but soon realizes the string of murders is targeting the expert archaelogists who are her only hope of unraveling a long-hidden secret in the Bible.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Niall Slynn | 2/14/2014

    " The comparisons are inevitable: "pretender to the Dan Brown crown". This from 2007 is probably the pick of the 'Dam Brourne' crop. It's the most rounded and stretches credulity the least. Like all this genre they're pacey page turners but this one I enjoyed the most. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Winnie | 1/17/2014

    " One of my favourite authors - his books are always well written with interesting characters and fast moving plot lines - only problem is that he is only writing part time so there is always a longish wait for the next novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 1/14/2014

    " Good story. Ended too quickly. Even better that Bourne's first one. Recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 1/5/2014

    " A la Dan Brown - good beach read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sanjay | 11/18/2013

    " Good Story Line and relates to the most unstable part in world. But comparisions to Dan Brown were not called for. How can someone compare Dan Brown with Sam Bourne both have different style and as far as my personal choive goes i would still rate Da Vinci Code better than Last Testament. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bhavya Mathur | 11/13/2013

    " I started reading it with no expectations.What fool compares this crap to Dan Brown's work. No comparisions..A loathesome book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Myriam | 11/6/2013

    " Boek geschreven naar aanleiding van de roof van het nationaal museum voor oudheden in Bagdad. Vlot leesbaar. Spannend "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abe | 11/4/2013

    " Although fiction, the story sheds much light on the stagnation of the peace process between Israel and Palestine. Sam Bourne is an excellent writer and knows how to weave a story that keeps the reader glued to the pages. I give this a five star. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gillian | 9/9/2013

    " OK but not as good as the first book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rik | 7/15/2013

    " I enjoyed this book, I thought it was well paced, with a good story.An interesting use of history's influence on modern events, with what I thought were well thought out consequences. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cath | 9/23/2012

    " Very disappointing, not really worth the read as this book is filled with clishees chasing each other, weak characters and a mediocre storyline which fails to become really gripping. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sreeram | 6/27/2012

    " the book was an interesting in parts but the climax was a big let down "

    " Prefered this to his first book, this was set in one of the worlds hot spots, but the usual culprits of mania and destruction may not be to blame on this occasion. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gwilym Rhys-jones | 9/9/2011

    " Like Righteous Men it is complete crap. I got halfway through and gave up. I have a third book by Sam Bourne which I shall not even open. "

    " Acho que me desiludiu um bocado, depois de Juízo Final e 36 Homens Justos confesso que esperava mais.
    Uma boa leitura, mas apenas mediana. "

    " A fast-paced novel somewhat in the vein of Dan Brown, as a newly discovered artifact of the last will and testament of Abraham becomes the centerpiece of a struggle surrounding the Middle East peace process. "
