The Essene Conspiracy is a fascinating crime/political thriller. The writer brings together characters from Wall Street to Jerusalem, showing his extensive knowledge of cultures, languages, and historical and contemporary political events. The titular conspiracy unravels nicely in the novel. McClure begins the novel with two cases that gradually become intertwined . Short chapters, shifting perspectives, and lean prose help make the plot move along at a good pace while the reader remains engaged in finding out more with each revelation McClure makes . . .
