The Last Testament

The Last Testament - Sam Bourne 'The Mirror' reviewed it as "The biggest challenger to Dan Brown's crown." Well, hardly... not even close, especially not this book. The plot of the story centers around the brokering of a Middle East peace treaty, and the discovery of an object from antiquity, a tablet which turns out to be the last will and testament of a Biblical patriarch, bearing the bequeathment of Mount Moriah (aka the Temple Mount).The pace of the story was not all that engaging until about the last third of the book. Also, rather distracting was the timeline which kept switching from the present to the past, and from different perspectives at that, so that made the flow rather disjointed.
