By the Rivers of Babylon,  Nelson DeMille,  Grand Central Publishing,  June 1 2003

Lod Airport,  Israel: Two Concorde jets take off for a U.N. conference that will finally bring peace to the Middle East.  Covered by F-14 fighters,  accompanied by security men, the planes carry warriors, pacifists,  lovers,  enemies,  dignitaries – and a bomb planted by a terrorist mastermind.  Suddenly they’re forced to crash-land at an ancient desert site. Here, with only a handful of weapons, the men and women of the peace mission must make a desperate stand against an army of crack Palestinian commandos – while the Israeli authorities desperately attempt a rescue mission.  In a land of blood and tears,  in a windswept place called Babylon,  it will be a battle of  bullets and courage,  and a war to the last death.
