The Last Ember
Daniel Levin

Reviewed by Tanzey Cutter

Thriller Arcane | Inspirational Historical

New author Daniel Levin has scored a huge hit with his masterful debut, THE LAST EMBER (Riverhead Books). This hardcover went on sale August 6, 2009, and I started reading it right away. I can't imagine a more thoroughly researched or excellently presented edict about religious archaeological terrorism than this fast-paced literary thriller. It captured my attention with its degree of realism, as well as educating me beyond expectation. Not since THE DA VINCI CODE have I become so absorbed in a work of fiction based on ancient religious facts. As you can guess, I recommend this book highly.

SUMMARY

Jonathan Marcus, a young American lawyer and a former doctoral student in classics, has become a sought-after commodity among less-scrupulous antiquities dealers. But when he is summoned to Rome to examine a client’s fragment of an ancient stone map, he stumbles across a startling secret. The discovery reveals not only an ancient intelligence operation to protect an artifact hidden for 2000 years, but also a ruthless modern plot to destroy all trace of it by a mysterious radical bent on erasing all remnants of Jewish and Christian presence from the Temple Mount.

With a cutting-edge plot as intricately layered as the ancient sites it explores, The Last Ember is a riveting tale spanning the high-stakes worlds of archaeology, politics, and terrorism, in its portrayal of the modern struggle to define — and redefine– history itself.
