Lion of Babylon by Davis Bunn—A Bethany House Book Review

Lion of Babylon, Davis Bunn, 978-0-7642-0905-5


The Blurb:

Marc Royce has been a State Department agent involved in covert operations--that is, until personal issues lead to his dismissal.

When Alex Baird goes missing in war-torn Baghdad, State comes calling again. Alex is a CIA agent--and a close friend of Royce. Three others have also dropped out of sight--a nurse, an aid worker, a wealthy young Iraqi. Are these cases linked? Rumors circulate about a kidnapping conspiracy, yet both American and local officials refuse to pursue it.

Blocked at every turn, Royce eventually unearths a trail of secret encounters between sworn enemies. What he discovers could transform the course of rivalry and reconciliation throughout the Mideast. As the human and political drama escalates, can one man summon the courage to make a difference?

My Review:

 Lion of Babylon by Davis Bunn is an exciting, and at times, heart-pounding, breath-taking political thriller.

The characters come to life in front of the readers eyes, while fast friendships develop between American, and Iraqi, Christian and Muslim. Who join together in the search for three missing Americans and an Iraqi.

During their search for the missing men and woman Marc and his new friends attend an underground church which Marc describes “’As they met and forged a friendship they began looking at the Bible. Together they studied the Gospels, the four book that tell of the life of Jesus’ Marc Waited a moment. then said,’They started praying together. For wisdom. For barriers to fall. For Jesus to Speak to them.’”

I would recommend this book to readers from teen to adult. My 15 year-old can not wait to start reading it.
