There is just something fun and exciting about an adventure story that is really enjoyable. This is another great story in the Jack Hawthorne Adventure Series! In Serpent of Moses the story starts seemingly at the end. Jack has found the artifact a London antiquities dealer sent him to retrieve. Unfortunately for Jack, the Israeli government wants to regain a piece of Jewish history that was thought to have been destroyed thousands of years ago. (A stretch of Biblical interpretation regards the staff that Moses held up to heal his people that some might take exception to). Jack disappears and his longsuffering, semi-girlfriend decides she and her brother need to find him. Not really knowing where he was, they start off on a world tour, enlisting the help of Jack’s ex-CIA friend Duckey, to try to track Jack down. Libyan agents, Israeli Mossad, an Egyptian mercenary, and a Briton with an ax to grind are all in the mix.
I would really recommend reading the first book in the series, Elisha’s Bones. This book can be read without having read of the first book, however, part of the story line is better understood if you read the other book first. Both are fun, enjoyable stories.
I received this book free of charge from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
