Will iconic images recorded in the grooves of an ancient vase unite the Holy Land or rip it further apart?

THE VASE

A novel by Mark M. DeRobertis

Muhsin Muhabi is a Palestinian potter, descended from a long line of potters. His business is run from the same shop owned by his ancestors since the day his forebears moved to Nazareth. The region's conflict saw the death of his oldest son, and rogue terrorists are in the process of recruiting his youngest in their plot to assassinate the Pope and Israeli prime minister.

Professor Hiram Weiss is an art historian at Nazareth’s Bethel University. He is also a Shin Bet operative on special assignment. With the help of fellow agent, Captain Benny Mathias, he plans to destroy the gang responsible for the death of his wife and only child. He puts a bomb in the ancient vase he takes on loan from Muhsin’s Pottery Shop.

Mary Levin, the charming assistant to the director of Shin Bet, has lost a husband and most of her extended family to recurring wars and never-ending terrorism. She dedicates her life to the preservation of Israel, but to whom will she dedicate her heart - the brilliant professor from Bethel University - or the gallant captain who now leads Kidon?

Harvey Holmes, the Sherlock of Haunted Houses, is a Hollywood TV host whose reality show just flopped. When a Lebanese restaurant owner requests his ghost-hunting services, he believes the opportunity will resurrect his career. All he has to do is exorcise the ghosts that are haunting the restaurant. It happens to be located right across the street from Muhsin’s Pottery Shop.

Blog Readers-Buy Books!

I wish that title to this post was true. Because if it was, then Killer of Killers and The Vase would be selling thousands of books. At least that's what my stats page indicates. Last month over 1,400 people visited this blog. And those numbers have been consistent every month for over a year. Sheesh, if even half of those visitors to the blog bought a copy of either Killer of Killers or The Vase, then those books would be getting pretty good exposure. Add to that, word of mouth, once the readers finish reading, and the ball would be rolling. More people would visit and more buyers would buy, and more readers would read the books. So if you're reading this, don't forget to click on the links to the right, and get your copy today. Then spread the word! And thanks!
