Claire needs to convince Dan Ze’evi, an Israeli engineer, to accompany her to Egypt to recover Moses’ Biblical staff that her dying neighbor has hidden there twenty years ago. She has a lot on her plate: She must keep the Russian oligarch who is financing her expedition happy, and she needs to get to the staff before a bunch of cutthroat fanatics who want it destroyed. But she can’t tell Dan what she’s after so she has to trick him into coming with her, and that is getting complicated because she thinks that she may be falling for him.
With such a heavy burden on her young shoulders, how can Claire win this dangerous race without losing Dan?

The science of getting into someone’s head is researched to no end. Police officers, profilers, scientists, and psychologists all make their best efforts, but at the end of the day…no one really ever knows why someone does the things that they do unless told. What would happen if someone found a way to deliberately cause a split personality? What would that mean for human nature…to actually be able to get into someone’s head and be a part of them? What would that mean for science? Exodus ’95 is an interesting thriller, one that will entertain and question the reader throughout its entirety.
Dan meets Claire while waiting for a potential buyer. Dan is a business man, looking to sell his company and Claire is a graphic designer. Both are pulled into a crazy tale about magical properties that are ingrained into Moses’ Biblical Staff. After Claire’s neighbor, Jack, informs her of the staff’s real location, she agrees to go through rigorous training so that only she can open the encrypted box where it has been held for decades. There is only one thing that Jack doesn’t tell Claire about the training…a big secret that threatens to take over her life or rather make her share her existence with someone else. With two very strong and menacing parties looking to find the staff, they know that they have been put in danger.
Luzzatto has decent character development, but their introductions are a bit rocky. Some areas of this novel drag very slowly where other scenes are very quick, which makes the read a bit confusing or difficult to follow. There is plenty of suspense and the story has hypothetical scenarios that are very creative and well-written. Luzzatto provides a certain vibe and writing style that may not appeal to everyone. If you are a reader of thrillers with a little romance, you may want to pick this up.
