The thrilling conclusion to the Mesopotamian trilogy about the origin of angels and the real location of the lost Garden of Eden

In 2011, D.J. McIntosh took the book world by storm with her bestselling debut novel, The Witch of Babylon . Praised by The Globe and Mail for its "stellar research" and "superb writing," it introduced readers to John Madison, a rakish New York art dealer who uncovered a fabulous treasure trove of antiquities in the hills outside Baghdad and the truth behind a famous story long believed to be a myth.

In this highly anticipated conclusion, Madison is hired by a famous magician to find a rare sixteenth century book on angel magic and the former assistant who stole it thirty-five years ago. Madison's quest leads him from the great mosques and churches of Istanbul to the ruins of Pergamon and the temples of the ancient Near East, where he discovers the true location of the Garden of Eden, the nature of angels, and the dark story of his birth.

Last of the trilogy and a bit of a let down. I don't know why McIntosh sets the protagonist in New York where the police accuse him if fraud and he becomes a murder suspect on such little evidence. Is the author criticizing the usa justice system or just frightening the tourists who would be wary of living in such a police state. There is not much depth of character in the protagonist and some of his decisions are so irrational, I had to roll my eyes! The book gives closure to the plot line but i would not pick up another book by this author.
