Publisher's Description

Marc Royce works for the State Department on special assignments, most of them rather routine, until two CIA operatives go missing in Iraq--kidnapped by Taliban forces bent on generating chaos in the region. Two others also drop out of sight--a high-placed Iraqi civilian and an American woman providing humanitarian aid. Are the disappearances linked? Rumors circulate in a whirl of misinformation.

Marc must unravel the truth in a covert operation requiring utmost secrecy--from both the Americans and the insurgents. But even more secret than the undercover operation is the underground dialogue taking place between sworn enemies. Will the ultimate Reconciler between ancient enemies, current foes, and fanatical religious factions be heard?

Author Bio

A native North Carolinian who now lives abroad, Davis Bunn is a bestselling and award-winning writer whose growing list of novels demonstrates the scope and diversity of his writing talent. Isabella Bunn has been a vital part of husband Davis's writing success, and her careful research and attention to detail have left their imprint on nearly every story. They live near Oxfordshire, England.

Publisher's Weekly

Novelist Bunn (To the Ends of the Earth) does for readers what keeps them coming back: he offers the expected and the totally unexpected. An unlikely American operative has to infiltrate the inner circles of Iraqi politics and culture to save the life of a friend and three companions who have gone mysteriously missing. Marc Royce is surprised to be taken in by an Iraqi family that thinks the disappearances may be connected to the kidnapping of dozens of children. Description is so vivid you can smell the food and choke on the desert sand. With many complex Iraqi characters, the story is broad, eschewing melodramatic focus on a few American characters pitted against Iraqi enemies. Bunn also breaks the mold of Christian fiction that views conversion as following a formula of simplistic prayers and belief statements. Says an underground pastor, "We look only to befriend. To illuminate and represent Jesus." Bunn's fans will leap for this precise and intricate tale of cross-cultural friendship and loyalty in the heart of the Red Zone. 60,000 first printing. (July) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    I never would have normally read a book about the C.I.A. and spies and such but I'm glad I did.
    Much better than I had expected and with a Christian base to it, i would recommend it.

    This book has a great story line. Davis Bunn is able to weave emotion and detail together to bring the reader to a full understanding of the surrounding background. Having lived in the area as a teenager, I was able to relate and identify with the backdrop of the setting of the story. Marc Royce is a relatable hero and there are plenty of subheros that are heros in their own right. Can't wait to read the next one in this series.

    After reading secular mysteries for a while, it was nice coming back to a Christian-value story--I'd forgotten how encouraging this can be. The story kept my attention and gave me insight to the life of Believers in other countries.

    I was an avid reader of Bunn for many years but a few years ago, his books became boring and poorly written in my opinion. This book and this series is written like those first series of his. My husband and I both enjoyed them.
