CFBA Tour for The Serpent of Moses by Don Hoesel

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Serpent of Moses
Bethany House Publishers (July 1, 2012)
Don Hoesel


Don Hoesel is a Web site designer for a Medicare carrier

in Nashville, TN. He has a BA in Mass Communication from

Taylor University and has published short fiction in Relief

Journal. He was born and raised in Buffalo, NY but lives in

Spring Hill, Tennessee, with his wife and two children. The

Serpent of Moses is his fourth novel.


Moses built and lifted up the brass serpent,

healing the afflicted Israelites of snakebites.

King Hezekiah called the serpent Nehushtan.

Long thought destroyed, it's been buried for

millennia, secreted under the region's shifting sands.

Now the Israeli government wants it back and they

will stop at nothing to get their hands on it. Yet

they're not the only ones who covet the Nehushtan.

Archaeologist Jack Hawthorne travels to Libya intent

on recovering the sacred object, but one does not

cross the Mossad and expect to walk away without a

fight. Jack and his friends must find the priceless

"snake of brass upon a pole" before those who are

also hunting it find them...and silence them forever.

If you would like to read the first chapter of

Serpent of Moses, go HERE.

MY THOUGHTS-This book is one of those that you pick up and read within a day. I figured it might be a little bit boring as it is one of those archeology type books but I flew through it! Probably because it reminded me of Indiana Jones:) If you have read any other books by Don Hoesel you will recognize his main character, Jack Hawthorne, and his fiesty female heroine, Esperanza. There is a lot of action, mystery and clues to figure out. And Don throws in plenty of spins and twists to throw the reader off. Check it out if you like a a good action book!

I received a copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation.
