Professional reviews

"New York City antiquities dealer John Madison finds himself up to his eyeballs in trouble. Some very bad people think he has a stone tablet that may be the original Book of Nahum, a Hebrew text written during the sacking of Nineveh. John's archaeologist brother, Samuel, rescued and hid the tablet from Iraqi looters during the Iraqi invasion of 2003, but now Samuel is dead, and John is in danger. James Yaegashi invests Book 1 of The Mesopotamian Trilogy with all the derring-do of an Indiana Jones adventure, delivering devious and deadly villains with chilling precision and making John's near-death experiences and fortuitous escapes electrifying. Combining historical puzzles, Assyriology, biblical scholarship, alchemy, an international treasure hunt, and witchcraft, Yaegashi's performance makes it all fast-paced fun. S.J.H.
