A rabbi discovers an ancient artifact that is inscribed with a story written by Herodotus, the greatest of Greek historians, renowned as the Father of History. This historical tale has been unread for three millennia and so shakes the rabbi's faith that he kills to keep the object and the tale it tells to himself.
The rabbi's deed instigates a quest to find the real Mount Sinai and a treasure buried within the Mountain of God. The treasure hunt engages the skills of a charming, beautiful but conniving Los Angeles realtor; her lover, an LAPD detective; a young and adventurous Silicon Valley billionaire; and a Harvard Egyptologist. SEEKING SINAI tests the limits of more than one man's faith and becomes entangled in Middle East turmoil and political intrigue. Uncovering Sinai's treasures also a presents a conundrum. Finding the treasures of ancient Egypt would be the greatest archeological discovery of all time; revealing them to the world could jeopardize the moral foundation of the world's greatest religions. Author Barry Pollack weaves an adventure story that takes you from ancient Egypt to California to the modern Middle East and back again. It's a journey that weaves Jewish philosophy with the politics of oil and water and the meaning and value of faith.
