The Babylon Contingency

DCI Robbie Peele is brought into the midst of conflict with terrorists and burglars trying to steal some ancient clay disks in England.  He has no idea why anyone would be so interested these disks.  His ideas change when people are murdered and he learns more about these special disks.

The important clue is left in some coded diaries written by an English explorer.  DCI Peele makes a trip to Crete with other coworkers where the explorer traveled.  There, more problems arise.  On the trip more people die.  Will DCI Peele ever be able to wrap up the case or is this archeology mystery beyond him?

About the Author-

Clifford Longley has written The Worlock Archive and Chosen People.  He is also a broadcaster and journalist. 

My thoughts-

When I read the description of this book I was intrigued and this was a very interesting book.  One of the most important things that I thought was good about this book is that it is a good book for men to read.  Every time I go to the library I find it very difficult to find books that would be good for men to read.  I know that often men may not read as much as women, but it would be good to have books written for them.  If there were more good books written for them, then perhaps they might read more.

I like reading mysteries and when history and archeology are added it makes it really interesting.  There was also a lot of intrigue when other religions and countries were involved.  DCI Peele was an atheist, which made it even more interesting. 

He was an interesting character.  He really tried to do the best he could for everyone.  It was too bad that he was kept in the dark for the investigation on who everyone really was.  It was good for the storyline, but bad for him.

I would recommend this book to men and women, but I think men would like it best.
