Serpent of Moses - review

"King Hezekiah called the serpent Nehushtan.  Long thought destroyed, it's been buried for millennia, secreted under the region's shifting sands.

Now the Israeli government wants it back and they will stop at nothing to get their hands on it.  Yet they're not the only ones who covet the Nehushtan.

Archaeologist Jack Hawthorne travels to Libya intent on recovering the sacred object, but one does not cross the Mossad and expect to walk away without a fight.  Jack and his friends must find the priceless "snake of brass upon a pole" before those who are also hunting it find them...and silence then forever." (taken from the back cover of the book)

I looked forward to reading this suspenseful novel and had high hopes.  Unfortunately, I just could not get into the storyline.  I gave myself the first 100 pages before I decided to put the book down.  I am bummed that I had to give a not so positive review, but hopefully I can pick up this book 6 months down the road and try again.

(Disclaimer:  I received this book from Bethany House Review in return for my honest opinion)
