The Promised War

When Israeli counter-terrorism agent Sam Deker thwarts an attempt by radical Palestinians to blow up Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock, little does he realize that the threat is a diversion. His deep knowledge of Israel's most closely guarded state secret means thatheis the real target.

Taken to neighbouring Jordan to be tortured, when Deker finally comes round he doesn't know if he is dead, in some torture-induced psychosis, or if stranger things are afoot, because he appears to have woken up in the middle of the ancient Israelite army on the eve of its historic siege of Jericho.

General Bin Nun has declared a holy war of Biblical proportions, and Deker's only chance of escape is to go on a dangerous mission to spy out the Promised Land in advance of the invasion. But all is not as it seems and Israel's fate in the 21st century lies in his hands.

Ensnared by a beautiful enemy and caught in a web of deadly betrayal, can Deker unlock the truth held within Jericho's famous walls before it's too late?
