Max and Kat are back!

RGB_Jeremiah'sJarThat’s right, Operation Jeremiah’s Jar, the third Thrill of the Hunt thriller featuring black-ops veteran Max Braxton and archaeologist Kat Cardova, will be put on the presses this month.

I thought The Last Aliyah was important enough to bump ahead of “Operation Jeremiah’s Jar.” Elk Lake Publishing agreed and The Last Aliyah has been a hit and won a number of terrific reviews.* (see end)

But now it’s time to take on Middle East jihadists and European political twits and who better than Max and Kat to do so?

Here’s the scenario: The United Nations has long led a diplomatic jihad against Israel, even declaring Jews have no historic claim on Jerusalem.

But 2,600-year-old proof of Jewish ownership exists. Kat’s goal—find the prophet Jeremiah’s property deed to land outside Jerusalem, which would fulfill a prophetic promise to Jeremiah and the nation today.

Meanwhile, when the President decides to move the American embassy to Jerusalem, Arab jihadists explode in fury, targeting the heart of the Jewish nation. Max is called in to guard the ambassador, but his first duty is to protect Kat at all costs.

Wait for it. October 15 is just around the corner when Operation Jeremiah’s Jar will be available at, and as well as on Kindle and from yours truly.

* About The Last Aliyah

“Leslie has crafted a chilling novel… In [his] gripping narrative, political intrigue drips from every page.

— Midwest Book Review

— “This could turn out to be a definitive book, from the shame of replacement theology to the Christian involvement in the rescue of the Jews.”

— Frank Eiklor, president of Shalom International

The Last Aliyah is one of the most intriguing stories written about the plight of the Jewish people in the End Times. What makes it memorable is the author’s resurrection of the use of the Underground Railroad that originally brought the slaves freedom to Canada, and now used to bring Jewish people home to Israel. A must read for Christians who stand with Israel.”

— Mitch Forman, vice president of Chosen People Ministries

“In a world fractured by social clashes and religious unrest, The Last Aliyah is a bit unsettling. It will alert readers to realize how fiction could conceivably turn into fact.

— Randall Murphree, editor AFA (American Family Association ) Journal

“[The Last Aliyah] is a compelling, fast-moving and timely story, and unfortunately begins with a very scary, but very plausible scenario. I enjoyed the book, and kept wondering how [Leslie] was going to get out of the corner he had painted Omri into. Very clever using the sci-fi version of 2 Kings 6:18.”

— Neil Lash, co-founder of Jewish Jewels
