Book reviews - A Long Way To Shiloh

A Long Way To Shiloh


Author: Lionel Davidson
Casper Laing, the young, fiery and brilliant Professor of Semitic Languages, is asked to decipher an ancient parchment found in Israel. Piecing together its mysterious fragments, his translation soon reveals directions to a shrouded location. Believed to be the secret hiding place of the True Menorah, an ancient and priceless Jewish candelabrum, the Jordanians and Israelis begin a frantic race to claim the prize. Surrounded by violent and treacherous rivals, Casper is enjoined on a deadly adventure deep into the burning Negev desert.

A Long Way to Shiloh was originally published in 1966 in the USA as The Menorah Men, it was a no. 1 bestseller and further cemented Davidson's reputation as one of the pre-eminent genre writers of his generation.

Long out of print, Faber is bringing this fantastic novel back into print.
