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.

Killer of Killers Accepted By Online Bookstore

There's an online bookstore, which I don't even remember how I became aware of it. It's called The Conservative Bookstore, and I don't even know why it's called that. The word 'conservative' can have several different meanings, and I'm not even sure which of those several meanings would apply to this bookstore. It could range anywhere from a book's content to a person's political agenda.

I'm not a political person myself. In fact, arguments about politics, race, and religion disgust me. All I know is that I want to get my books into as many different bookstores as possible to promote sales, so I asked them if they would make Killer of Killers one of the books in their bookstore.

Well, today they did. Here's the link: http://www.conservativebookstore.com/fiction/114/killer-of-killers

I will put it up for a permanent link somewhere on the blog, as well.

Next, I'll tell them about The Vase, and see what they say. Don't know if the events in The Vase would qualify it for a book on their website, but I didn't know if they'd take Killer of Killers either. Since they did, maybe they'll take The Vase, too. We'll see.
