"Fuses crime thriller and medical thriller." -IndieReaderWhen Derrick Daniels, Justice Department attorney, reluctantly investigates the possibility that rogue Arab states developed deadly diseases as a terrorist weapon against the United States, assassins and inexplicable forces threaten his existence. Soon, the powers of ancient law collide with contemporary villainy threatening the fate of all humankind.

*SPOILERS ahead *This book was great, I found that it held my attention quite well and I cared about the characters. I liked the premise and idea of the story being told, though I did find the timing a bit off when the main character's wife dies and within what seemed like a matter of a couple of days, he was in love with his co-worker. Where the story lost me is when, near the end of the novel, these Angelic beings, for lack of a better term, are apparently some of the "bad guys", who are out to do harm to the human race and help clean up the world; and they're also using unscrupulous, corrupt individuals in their plot. Otherwise, story up to that point was great and very interesting, with the suggestion that not following Levitical dietary laws causes all sorts of illnesses in today's society. I would have liked to seen the story take a different direction than it did. ( )
