“Why would a U.S. president want to destroy his own cities and foment unrest?” Joshua asks in Sylvia Bambola’s novel, The Babel Conspiracy.
~ What ~
This three-hundred-ten-page paperback targets those who enjoy Christian contemporary suspense. With no profanity, topics of abuse, torture, and death may not be appropriate for immature readers. The beginning contains a note regarding the book being recently rewritten while the ending has a helpful list of characters, glossary, author’s note, and eight discussion questions.
This current day story set in America, two women who are around thirty years old may work close to each other at Patterson Aviation, but their personalities and beliefs are opposite. Trisha Callahan, a Christian who is collaborating on a top-secret project, regrettably is in love with her married boss and does not want to succumb to adultery. Audra Shield works for Trisha but refuses to have any personal or romantic relationship as one night stands and alcohol are her vices.
When riots break out and supposed accidents keep happening, the two women and men they are involved with are pulled into a web of deception that reaches the White House as well as the Islamic State of America as the clock ticks toward a presidential election.
~ Why ~
This book not only focuses on two women’s viewpoint on sex, adultery, and addiction, but it also examines the makings of a nuclear-powered aircraft, the interworkings of the Mossad, and how politicians use others to get their way. Many will like the diversified characters from a quirky senator’s niece and a Jewish soldier out for vengeance to a spoiled, materialistic wife and a loyal friend watching out for others.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like books about conspiracies, kidnapping, torture, and death will avoid this book. Others may become annoyed with the punctuation errors that slow down the reading process.
~ Who ~
Having written eight novels, the award-winning author who has two adult children lives in Florida where she teaches women’s Bible studies and loves gardening and playing the guitar.
~ Wish ~
Having read a prior novel by the author, I was looking forward to reading this one, but, once again, I was surprised with all the punctuation errors that experienced writers usually do not make. I wish the book were professionally edited or proofread as it is frustrating for an avid reader to have to stop and reread a sentence to try to figure out what it means when there are missing commas.
~ Want ~
If you enjoy a novel that blends the United States government with terrorists, the Mossad, and two women with different beliefs, this is a good read. I have rated it down because the many writing errors slowed the fast-paced tone of the book.
