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

Buy the Books!
I mean my data tells me people from the UK, Canada, Hungary, South Africa, South Korea, Germany, France, Russia, Ukraine, Sweden, Australia, China, Indonesia, Mexico, and several other countries are visiting the blog. And I welcome you all.
But buy my books! It's not going to make me rich, but if you do, it might make some kind of an impact on the seller's market and draw the interest of Hollywood. That's where the real money is for an author. Just ask J.K. Rowling. And I couldn't even stand her Harry Potter books, or the movies! But someone sure as heck did.
I would like to make a deal. If you don't like the books...tell me. But if you do...tell me that. I'm betting you'll like the books. I can't say I'll pay you back if you don't, but come on...the eBooks are only like three dollars each for The Vase, or five for Killer of Killers. That won't break anyone's bank account. And it will be worth it once you discover how much fun they are to read.
If you like martial arts stories, Killer of Killers is for you. If you like suspense and intrigue, you'll like The Vase. If you like exciting action-packed stories, you won't be disappointed in any of my books. Find out for yourself. That's all.
