His marriage in tatters and his career ruined by lies, Diplomatic Security Service agent Brian Mullaney is at the end of his rope. Banished to Israel as punishment by his agency, he's assigned to guard a US ambassador and an insignificant box. Little does he know that this new job will propel him straight into a crisis of global proportions.

Inside the box is a messianic prophecy about the fate of the world. And a dark enemy known as The Turk and the forces of evil at his command are determined to destroy the box, the prophecy, and the Middle East as we know it. When Ambassador Cleveland gets in the way, his life and his daughter's life are threatened--and Mullaney must act fast.

Now agents of three ancient empires have launched covert operations to secure nuclear weapons, in direct defiance of the startling peace treaty Israel and its Arab neighbors have signed. And a traitor in the US State Department is leaking critical information to a foreign power. It's up to Mullaney--still struggling with his own broken future--to protect the embassy staff, thwart the clandestine conspiracies, and unmask a traitor--before the desert is turned into a radioactive wasteland.

Fans of Joel C. Rosenberg, Steven James, and Ted Dekker will relish the deadly whirlpool of international intrigue and end-times prophecy in Ishmael Covenant--and will eagerly await the rest of this new trilogy.

This book has been an exciting adventure. The author is well versed in military lingo which explodes on the pages. I loved reading about the different countries and what their history was. It was intriguing to learn about prophecies from the Bible. The story is centered around a very special box that holds a treasure many would kill for. I liked the intensity of the story as danger  slipped around every corner. I loved how fast the action was and the characters who were expertly written.
Brian Mullaney has been assigned a very important duty which will find him face to face with death. He is a very intelligent man who must bring a very precious box safely to a Rabbi. I desperately wanted to know what was in the box and wished I was there helping to guard it. The author  writes the story so realistically I felt like I was actually there as the bullets flew and bombs exploded.

It is a great story that brings the Middle East into the middle of a battle where peace is wanted by some. There is a part in the story where Brian turns to God for help. He feels inadequate to do the job and knows he needs to find his faith again.It is worth mentioning how a man in the midst of danger stops to pray and seeks God's wisdom in his time of need. There are several keys characters in the book that Brian will come in contact with. He will have to decide who he can trust and who is the enemy. Will the box be delivered safely? It is a wonderful end of time story that left me wanting more. I am happy to say that there will be more books coming soon in this exciting series. I am anxious to find out what happens next.

I received a copy of this book from Read with Audra blogger program. The review is my own opinion.
