Lod Airport, Israel: Two Concorde jets take off for a U.N. conference that will finally bring peace to the Middle East. Covered by F-14 fighters, accompanied by security men, the planes carry warriors, pacifists, lovers, enemies, dignitaries -- and a bomb planted by a terrorist mastermind.

Suddenly they're forced to crash-land at an ancient desert site. Here, with only a handful of weapons, the men and women of the peace mission must make a desperate stand against an army of crack Palestinian commandos -- while the Israeli authorities desperately attempt a rescue mission. In a land of blood and tears, in a windswept place called Babylon, it will be a battle of bullets and courage, and a war to the last death.

Extra Content

From Our Editors

It’s an airborne United Nations’ conference on an unprecedented scale, bringing together warriors and pacifists, dignitaries and the military, friends and enemies. But the most impressive passenger on the Concorde with this special delegation is a bomb, planted by a brilliant terrorist. With the same edge-of-the-seat suspense that made The General’s Daughter a best-seller, Nelson DeMille writes of politics in Palestine, Israeli rescue missions and a no-man’s-land of death in the desperate attempt to avert war in The Rivers of Babylon.
