If anyone likes reading about Middle Eastern/Israeli History I can make a list here.

But you must start with The Prime Ministers
I'd love to see your list.
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

I didn't read Deception Point. Though I would put Digital Fortress after The Da Vinci code. The lost symbol would def go last, seems like he's past his prime.
I actually enjoyed the lost symbol, it was kinda diffrent.

Couldn't put it down

Although there are some historical facts said to the author in the book, which may be a bit on the selective memory side.

The DaVinci code has some pretty weird "facts" about the beis HaMikdash.

I cant imagine it being as good in audio, it has many great diagrams and stuff.
