When I picked up THE MOSES EXPEDITION, the cover with its
desert scene, ancient maps, and flames caught my attention.
Add in all the praise from well-known authors and I was
prepared to be excited, and a little afraid I would be
disappointed. Sometimes you never can tell. Thankfully, I
was right to be excited.
THE MOSES EXPEDITION is a glorious ride that takes you from
the horrors of the holocaust to the modern day traumas of 9-
11. Written in a smooth and deft manner, this book took me
on a thrilling emotional roller coaster ride that I loved.
Sites and scenes are made real for the reader.
The archeological journey, the offices in New York,
and ghostly whispers of unimaginable horrors in Vienna are
all real and tear-inducing.
Written from various points of view, THE MOSES EXPEDITION is
fast paced allowing the story to quickly move forward. In
my opinion, the main character, Father Anthony Fowler, was
the most fascinating and intriguing person. I loved the
inherent dichotomy he represented by being a priest, a
solider, and a spy in the name of the Lord. It was
fascinating, like walking with a respectful, religious and
scrupulous Jason Bourne.
Creative, timely, realistic, and moving, Juan Gomez-Jurado
has another winner on his hands. I could easily see why it
is an international bestseller. Happily, I've recommended
this book to my friends that are mystery lovers and current
event enthusiasts. From what I hear, its a winner on all

flame to the wax, the missing fragment of an ancient map
that uncovers the location of the Ten Commandments given to
Moses is revealed. Soon Fowler is involved in an expedition
to Jordan set up by a reclusive billionaire. But there is a
traitor in the group who has ties to terrorist organizations
back in the United States, and who is patiently awaiting the
moment to strike.
From wartime Vienna to terrorist cells in New York and a
lost valley in Jordan,The Moses Expeditionis a thrilling
read about a quest for power and the secrets of an ancient
