The Imam of the Cave is a suspenseful page turner that will get you entangled in its web of intrigue with its main character, Bill Holden, who is struggling to figure out what has happened to his U.N. Inspectors and why. Be forewarned: This book is a nail biter. I loved the characters, particularly Bill, Bob, and Gloria, and just when you think all is lost, big Bob saves the day - or so you think. The plot and subplots take you out of your comfy reading chair to exotic and dangerous places. The Imam of the Cave gave me a feeling of traveling without all the hassle of the TSA and lost luggage. I highly recommend this read. And what a great price!

I've always been suspicious that there are many untold tales of adventure and intrigue involving the United Nations inspectors in Iraq, and author J Randall certainly has woven an interesting tale with "The Imam of the Cave". The story is comprised of several viewpoints and the authenticity of the characters brings the story to life. I especially liked the descriptive "local color", as I have never been to Iraq. Tradition, obligation, tribal allegiance and duty from all perspectives are woven into a very interesting read. Well done.
