📕My Review

Before dying, Claire Williams' elderly neighbour Jack Jones gives her the knowledge that will unlock the box storing the biblical Staff of Moses. Jack wants Claire to be financially secure after his death and tells her she must sell the box and its contents to shady Russian businessman Andrey Leskov. Israeli engineer Dan Ze'evi is the only person who knows the location of the box and agrees to help Claire in exchange for a deal to save his failing company. However, someone else wants it too and is prepared to stop at nothing to possess it.

There are some rather good twists in this book. The characters of Claire and Jack turn out to be especially interesting and I must commend the author on a job well done in that respect. The plot hurtles along at a good pace and is both thrilling and exciting. There are double-crossings aplenty and a whole bunch of menacing baddies thrown into the mix. It's well-written and, in my opinion, a very enjoyable read.

My thanks to author Kfir Luzzatto for providing a copy of this book.

Claire needs the help of an Israeli engineer and the money of a Russian oligarch to recover the staff before her body betrays her. But first she needs to stay alive in a race with fanatics, who will do anything to keep the staff from coming to light.
