"Indiana Jones and Jason Bourne all would recognize Evan Sinclair—the rough-and-ready hero of Foxes in the Vineyard—as one of their own. In the action-packed work of historical fiction, Sinclair battles Nazis, reconnects with a lost love and participates in a mystical ritual with the Knights Templar in Jerusalem in 1948."
