Book Review: Lion of Babylon by Davis Bunn

     Marc Royce loved his job. Working for the State Department up till his abrupt dismissal, because of meaningless issues. Nearly three years later, he is called upon to help solve the problem of three people who have gone missing in Baghdad. One person going missing is  a problem. Two people going missing is also a problem. Three people going missing  is a gigantic problem. Are they linked? Three people from completely different lifestyles, a nurse, an aid worker, and a wealthy Iraqi boy, yet their disappearances are too similar to be a coincidence. While working on the problem, Marc finds trails of people meeting who were sworn enemies.He discovers a surprising truth that could change the Middle East. Forever.
     This book was well written out, grabbing one from the first chapter. Usually, books can be given until the end of the first paragraph to draw in a reader. This book did just that. With an Intriguing beginning, and intensely suspenseful end, this book is hard to put down. One will agree that this book had just the right number of pages, and an interesting plot that sets it apart from others. Though fairly sad at parts, Overall, this book was a fantastic read for anyone who enjoys a fast-paced story, on the edge of trouble. One would recommend this book to ages 13+, because younger children would not understand it as well.
