Mohamed's Moon

There's a small notation on the cover of Mohamed's Moon. It says, "a novel of suspense." It doesn't lie. The novel, set partly in Egypt and partly in California, evokes a strong sense of place in both settings and keeps the reader going from page to page. Just when you think you know where it's going, there's a new twist.

The author, Keith Clemons does a good job of presenting the folly of Islam in this book, as he takes Mohamed, his main character, through a battle of faith. He helps us to understand the commitment of men to a belief system that demands death yet gives us a picture of people who are searching, as we all are, to find God.

There is a little of everything in this book - romance, a love triangle, political ingrigue and spiritual enlightenment.

An entertaining and worthwhile read. Pick up a copy today.

I LOVED this book. Just couldn't put it down. What a 'page-turner'!
Keith has obviously done a thorough job in researching his story. It is indeed a novel of suspense, and so much more!
