Dr. Katie James goes to Iraq to analyze a whale fossil that may shed light on the evolutionary debate. Unexpectedly, she finds herself working with her arch-rival Nick Murad. But then Katie finds a second fossil, a human fossil so controversial that Katie and Nick find themselves suddenly shunned by the academic community, even as the fossil itself disappears
The good guys behave morally most of the time. Actually, Nick behaves better than Katie sometimes, and she's supposed to be the believer.
Christianity, Judaism, and Islam all seem to be accurately portrayed.
Physical fights, gun use.

The characters are well-developed and interesting, but I found myself disappointed that the whale fossil wasn't even found until more than halfway through the book...It seems to me that an initial incident should happen, well, initially.
