1975 Former detective and spy-catcher Dan Delaney and his West Auckland family are on a visit to the Holy Land which goes horribly wrong from the moment they land at Ben-Gurion Airport. A plot is underway to desecrate the most sacred sites and incite conflict between the three great religions whose worship centres on a small area of inner Jerusalem. The Jewish authorities are determined at any cost to prevent another terrorist outrage such as that at Ben-Gurion Airport concourse a few years before, or worse, the recent surprise Yom Kippur attack that threatened the nation's survival. Old enemies have put Delaney's family in the crosshairs of their planned outrages. This is the fifth Dan Delaney mystery. NZ fiction reviewer Alyson Baker described the fourth Delaney story Death of an Agent as 'another great New Zealand read'.
