This book is fascinating. Built on an intriguing idea. What if God decided to punish a handful of the Israelites who participated in the Golden Calf fiasco by giving them immortality? And what if they spent the rest of eternity trying to earn their way back to God? This book has the excellent writing I expect from a Robert Liparulo book…but even more it has a concept that engaged me from the first page and drew me from page to page. Great idea and great execution!
I hope to have Robert here soon so you can learn more about him and his vision for this book.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Their story didn’t start this year . . . or even this millennium.
It began when Moses was on Mt. Sinai. Tired of waiting on the One True God, the twelve tribes of Israel began worshipping a golden calf through pagan revelry. Many received immediate death for their idolatry, but 40 were handed a far worse punishment-endless life on earth with no chance to see the face of God.
This group of immortals became the 13th Tribe, and they’ve been trying to earn their way into heaven ever since-by killing sinners. Though their logic is twisted, their brilliance is undeniable. Their wrath is unstoppable. And the technology they possess is beyond anything mere humans have ever seen.
Jagger Baird knows nothing about the Tribe when he’s hired as head of security for an archaeological dig on Mt. Sinai. The former Army Ranger is still reeling from an accident that claimed the life of his best friend, his arm, and his faith in God.
