book cover

A high ranking Israeli minister has been murdered in Jerusalem. Muslim terrorists are suspected, but no group has claimed responsibility.

Discovering a barely legible name scribbled on a blood-stained business card in the shirt pocket of the slain minister, the Director of Israeli Intelligence calls upon international security consultant Harry McClure to investigate a possible American connection to the brutal crime.

The clock is ticking as Israeli Intelligence, aided by McClure, race to organize a preemptive eleventh-hour strategy aimed at thwarting the brotherhood’s imminent attack. A timely blend of historical fact and fiction, the Essene Conspiracy builds to an unpredictable ending.

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 . . .
