Synopsis

Set against the backdrop of the world’s most bitter international conflict, The Last Testament is a brilliantly layered conspiracy thriller from Sam Bourne, author of the New York Times bestseller The Righteous Men. Jeffery Deaver, author of Cold Moon, has called Bourne’s writing, “thoroughly enjoyable and compelling,” and fans of Dan Brown, Raymond Khoury, and Daniel Pearl will eagerly devour this ingenious blend of religious and political intrigue. Nebraska’s Lincoln Journal Star calls The Last Testament, “A bloody well-done tale and it might even some day be true.”

The repeated play on people's names - anagrams, translations - is pure sub-Da Vinci, although I did like the mad nod to Richard and Judy (who boosted sales of The Righteous Men with their Book Club) by using their initials to signify 'Refugees and Jerusalem'.

Mediating divorces instead of world-threatening squabbles between countries, Maggie Costello misses her former career and lives in a holding pattern, stuck between a boring job and an unsatisfying relationship with a control freak boyfriend.

The Bookbag

He clearly knows his Isaacs from his Ishmaels (something that I confess to being ignorant of until I read this book and something that I also ashamedly confess to being too lazy to have bothered to find out about at any time prior!) and this fact makes the book all the more compelling a read.
