In his signature style of grand storytelling, James A. Michener transports us back thousands of years to the Holy Land. Through the discoveries of modern archaeologists excavating the site of Tell Makor, Michener vividly re-creates life in an ancient city and traces the profound history of the Jewish people—from the persecution of the early Hebrews, the rise of Christianity, and the Crusades to the founding of Israel and the modern conflict in the Middle East. An epic tale of love, strength, and faith, The Source is a richly written saga that encompasses the history of Western civilization and the great religious and cultural ideas that have shaped our world. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Hawaii. Praise for The Source “Fascinating . . . stunning . . . [a] wonderful rampage through history . . . Biblical history, as seen through the eyes of a professor who is puzzled, appalled, delighted, enriched and impoverished by the spectacle of a land where all men are archeologists.”—The New York Times “A sweeping [novel] filled with excitement—pagan ritual, the clash of armies, ancient and modern: the evolving drama of man’s faith.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “Magnificent . . . a superlative piece of writing both in scope and technique . . . one of the great books of this generation.”—San Francisco Call Bulletin

To their families and friends, they appeared to be as normal as everyday people. They were all in their late twenties, were from good families and had been educated at India's finest universities. But they were the modern-day outlaws of society. In the world of the Internet, they were cyberpunks and computer hackers. Calling themselves Doomsday, they made a pact with the Russian mafia. Their plan was to steal the source code to a critical computer program and then, using that source code, to remove $10 billion from US banks without a trace. Eight thousand miles away, Sarah Wynter, the director of a prestigious art gallery, unexpectedly became the sole heir to over $2 billion upon the death of her estranged uncle. Her rational world suddenly turned into one of terror. Using the stolen source code, Doomsday silently breached the firewalls of her banks' computers and stole the $2 billion. It then gave instructions to the mafia to kill her. In Richmond, Virginia, the identity of attorney John Ambrose is stolen by a Columbian drug cartel and used to traffic drugs. Fighting back, he unwittingly gained possession of $400 million of the cartel's money, and his death warrant was sealed. He suddenly found himself alienated from his law firm and the target of a nationwide manhunt. When the stolen source code is used to break into critical US defense installations, warning bells are sounded at the FBI. In their frantic attempt to stay alive, the lives of Ambrose and Wynter cross as they are thrust into a deadly confrontation with the mafia and the cartel.
