Description

A search for a priceless artifact stolen from the Second Temple in Jerusalem becomes a race against time, terrorism, politics, and the past.Jonathan Marcus is a promising young archeologist studying at the American Academy in Rome when a terrible accident results in a fellow student's death and Jonathan's expulsion. He abandons archeology for the law, becoming a skillful advocate for unscrupulous antiquities dealers.When Jonathan's firm sends him to Rome to discredit the testimony of a prominent U.N. antiquities official, a chance reunion leads to a hunt for the legendary Tabernacle Menorah: solid gold, eight feet high, stolen 2,000 years ago and never recovered. As Jonathan and his friend scour Rome's ancient sites for hints to its whereabouts, they quickly realize they are not alone and the precious menorah is a key to controlling history itself.

Professional reviews

"Jeff Woodman's breathless narration maintains the suspense through each twist of this implausibly byzantine but highly enjoyable adventure. Ex-archaeologist and current antiquities lawyer Jonathan Marcus returns to his first profession during a business trip to Rome. He joins his ex-girlfriend and former classmate in a search for the eight-foot gold menorah that once graced Jerusalem's temple. At every step, they're dogged by a well-connected terrorist who seeks the ritual object's destruction. Woodman is great with the accents of English speakers--English, American, Australian. But other languages, mainly Italian and Arabic, get the same vaguely foreign-sounding inflection. A.B.G. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
