Fuse of Armageddon by Sigmund Brouwer and Hank Hanegraaf

Upon the backdrop of war-torn Palestine, a prominent American pastor leads a portion of his flock on a tour that is designed to show why Israel is superior to Palestine.
Than gunfire erupts and several people are killed. The pastor is taken hostage by a surprising captor.
A hostage negotiator has been falsely accused of murdering a Middle Eastern man in the United States. He didn't do it this time, but he has had a checkered past. With the help of an FBI woman, he is dragged across the globe to Palestine and gets involved in the crisis.
A ragtag militia is trekking across the desert toward the Dome of the Rock with an unlikely piece of baggage: a red cow that the commander has told his men to protect with their lives.
All three plots are connected, but how?
Once again, Sigmund demonstrates his unique ability to execute a suspenseful plot without coming off as cheesy or overly dramatic. The characters pretty good; not very good when compared to other characters, but this is a plot-driven story.
All in all, this book is full of surprises but falls short of the five star award because it could have had a slightly better end. But it's still worth reading.
4 stars
