Lion of Babylon

Marc Royce has been a State Department agent involved in covert operations--that is, until personal issues lead to his dismissal.

When Alex Baird goes missing in war-torn Baghdad, State comes calling again. Alex is a CIA agent--and a close friend of Royce. Three others have also dropped out of sight--a nurse, an aid worker, a wealthy young Iraqi. Are these cases linked? Rumors circulate about a kidnapping conspiracy, yet both American and local officials refuse to pursue it.

Blocked at every turn, Royce eventually unearths a trail of secret encounters between sworn enemies. What he discovers could transform the course of rivalry and reconciliation throughout the Mideast. As the human and political drama escalates, can one man summon the courage to make a difference?

Marc Royce works for the State Department on special assignments, most of them rather routine, until two CIA operatives go missing in Iraq--kidnapped by Taliban forces bent on generating chaos in the region. Two others also drop out of sight--a high-placed Iraqi civilian and an American woman providing humanitarian aid. Are the disappearances linked? Rumors circulate in a whirl of misinformation.

Marc must unravel the truth in a covert operation requiring utmost secrecy--from both the Americans and the insurgents. But even more secret than the undercover operation is the underground dialogue taking place between sworn enemies. Will the ultimate Reconciler between ancient enemies, current foes, and fanatical religious factions be heard?

Write Your Own Review
A great read - entertaining, yet robust
4 stars By M T Spiller, Aug 03 2014
I really liked this book.  It is so refreshing to see a Christian author publish a novel which covers all aspects of life and makes one want to keep reading to the final page.  This book will appeal to those who like action, drama, a mystery with some insight into other countries, finished off with the hint of a little romance. A well rounded hearty read, I don't get a lot of time to read and really appreciate reading a book that is captivating and takes you to another time and place. Feels like time well spent!   I'll certainly be reading more of Davis Bunn's books, thank you.
