Deep beneath the ancient city of Jerusalem lies a secret that knows no bounds, devastating enough to reach across time. History’s greatest spy story begins here.

For a millennium, Jerusalem’s Temple Mount has been at the center of war and death. There’s never been a time when blood wasn’t spilled upon this ancient, sacred site. Flash forward to present-day Jerusalem, where 35-year-old Israeli counterterrorism agent Sam Deker has just thwarted the most recent act of violence—an attempt by radical Palestinians to blow up the Dome of the Rock mosque and pin the blame on right-wing Orthodox Jews. The threat, however, is a diversion. Deker himself is the real target. He is captured and taken to neighboring Jordan, where he is tortured because of his deep knowledge of Israel’s most closely guarded state secret.

Deker escapes with his comrade Uri Elezar, making it all the way to the border, only to be taken down at the banks of the Jordan River. This time, however, Deker wakes up in the middle of the ancient Israelite army on the eve of its historic siege of Jericho. Deker doesn’t know if he is dead, in some torture-induced psychosis, or really back in time. But General Bin-Nun has declared a colossal holy war, and he’s sending Deker and Elezar on a dangerous mission to spy on the Promised Land in advance of the invasion.

For Deker, it’s his only hope to escape this genocidal hell. Then he finds himself in the arms of a beautiful enemy named Rahab, caught in a web of deadly betrayal, as he struggles to unlock the truth, secure Israel’s future and his own, and save the twenty-first century from The Promised War.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by John Betts | 12/7/2012

    " A pretty good thriller, though the end does stumble a bit. An Israei special-ops soldier while on a dangerous mission is transported back in time to ancient Jericho, where he joins the Israelite invasion of Canaan. Or is it all a hoax? Hmm... You'll have to read it to find out. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Kim | 9/29/2012

    " I found this a very average book. An interesting premise but it wasn't told in the best way. A bit convoluted and at times frustrating. Good for a read only if there's nothing else available. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Tommy | 4/17/2012

    " I didn't enjoy this book nearly as much as I did the Atlantis trilogy. I couldn't get into the whole concept of the main characters going back in time to help fight the battle of Jericho. Hopefully his next book will be more like the first three. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sue | 10/24/2011

    " I struggled with the first few chapters of this book, but I gave it a chance. I don't regret it, the story really came into its own, after Deker goes back in time. It was enthraling and I couldnt put it down. This is the first novel I've read by this author, and I'd like to read more. "
