Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Eagle Has Landed comes another thrilling novel of World War II intrigue.

The year is 1939. The lost Temple of Sheba is not just a biblical legend. A German archaeologist has found it. The Nazis have claimed it. And one American explorer has stumbled upon their secret...

When archaeologist Gavin Kane is hired to find a woman’s missing husband, he follows the man’s trail into the ruthless desert of Southern Arabia and makes two shocking discoveries. One is the legendary Temple of Sheba, an ancient world as fantastic as King Solomon’s mines. The other is a band of Nazi soldiers who plan to turn the sacred landmark into Hitler’s secret stronghold. Kane’s discovery could change the course of the war—but what he knows just might get him killed first.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 02, 1995 – In this slick archeological thriller, Higgins (The Eagle Has Landed) reaffirms his skill as a storyteller. In 1939, with the world on the brink of war, American Arabist Gavin Kane is hired to find a missing husband. The missing husband, John Cunningham, disappeared while on a wild goose chase through the Middle East in search of the legendary Temple of Sheba. The Temple turns out to be all too real. And, unfortunately for Kane and his friends, the Nazi's have discovered the Temple first and are using it as headquarters to implement Hitler's plan to destroy the Suez Canal. The mixture of archeology and Nazism, naturally brings to mind Indiana Jones and, in fact, the book is very reminiscent of those movies. This is the kind of story where all the villains have German accents, and the heroes can survive a 30-mile hike in the desert with no water. Who cares if the characters are one-dimensional stereotypes (the dashing archeologist, the mysterious beautiful woman)? This fast-paced story has enough action and adventure to make up for any such shortcomings.
