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-the Second Edition

When it comes to Killer of Killers, just to clear up any confusion, Killer of Killers, the Second Edition is the version to read. I do believe that all outlets from where you can purchase a copy are updated with the Second Edition. That would mean Lulu, Smashwords, Amazon, Barns and Nobles, and any other place where books are bought. And that would also mean both print and digital.

If you are interested in buying a copy, make sure it says Second Edition somewhere, especially on the copyright page, and that will confirm it. Another way you can tell, the Second Edition was published in 2013. The first edition was published in 2012. So if you don't see "Second Edition" anywhere, AND it says that it was published in 2012, then that might be the outdated copy.

By the way, thank you to anyone who is interested in reading it, and I really believe your interest will not be unfounded, nor will any reader be disappointed. Feel free to let me know. And now would be the time for any thoughts to be relayed, because I am on my final round of revisions/edits on the sequel, Killer Eyes. In fact, I really do plan on submitting Killer Eyes to my publisher by next week sometime.

That doesn't guarantee I will. I've said over and over again that the more you perfect something the more perfect it becomes, and that only makes sense. I might indeed choose to read through it one more time, but I really don't think I will. I do believe this is the last time. But when it goes through the editing stage a Melange, of course, I'll be reading through it a couple more times. That goes without saying.

At any rate, Killer of Killers, the Second Edition is the latest and best version of the first story in the Trent Smith saga. Read all about Trent's quest for justice, and his confrontation with the aged billionaire, Abraham Soriah, and his immortal supermen. It's quite a ride!
