His marriage in tatters and his career ruined by lies, Diplomatic Security Service agent Brian Mullaney is at the end of his rope. Banished to Israel as punishment by his agency, he’s assigned to guard a US ambassador and an insignificant box. Little does he know that this new job will propel him straight into a crisis of global proportions. Inside the box is a messianic prophecy about the fate of the world. And a dark enemy known as The Turk and the forces of evil at his command are determined to destroy the box, the prophecy, and the Middle East as we know it.
When Ambassador Cleveland gets in the way, his life and his daughter’s life are threatened–and Mullaney must act fast. Now agents of three ancient empires have launched covert operations to secure nuclear weapons, in direct defiance of the startling peace treaty Israel and its Arab neighbors have signed. And a traitor in the US State Department is leaking critical information to a foreign power. It’s up to Mullaney–still struggling with his own broken future–to protect the embassy staff, thwart the clandestine conspiracies, and unmask a traitor–before the desert is turned into a radioactive wasteland. Fans of Joel C. Rosenberg, Steven James, and Ted Dekker will relish the deadly whirlpool of international intrigue and end-times prophecy in Ishmael Covenant–and will eagerly await the rest of this new trilogy.

This is book is a lot. Not my typical light read. But if you like books that have a lot of government things and what is going on in other countries then this is a book you will enjoy.
It had a ring of “Left Behind” to it in that we are dealing with end times and how different countries and people react to that truth or situation.
There were parts that my brain kind of glazed over but it didn’t take long before I was engaged again. There are many different characters and it is difficult to keep them all straight at times but there is a index at the beginning of who is who, so that was helpful to refer back to when I needed to.
If you are looking for a book with a lot of layers and depth you would enjoy this book.
