BECAUSE THE DEVIL LOVED EVE
A war waged against Heaven and mankind because of a desire unfulfilled. An ancient battle between the warriors of Heaven and fallen archangels. And the world today onto which the war in Heaven has bled.
Charged with a murder committed by a demon, Assistant District Attorney Reggie Barrington escapes from police custody. Protected by archangels, but with the devil confounding his life, Reggie flees to Hebron, Israel. Arriving in a city where soldiers follow residents and visitors alike with the tips of their rifles, Reggie must outwit the devil and find the person who can free Reggie from the demons that plague him.
"[Because the Devil Loved Eve] is hard to put down once you have read the first pages. The language is precise, the chapters end with hurried anticipation of what is to follow, the characters seem real enough to warrant an urgent visit to Brooklyn - and the plot is impeccable. One is easily left to wonder if this story, which is so seamlessly crafted, is really a work of fiction.
Ms. Jacob has comfortably combined the ancient mysteries of creation with aspects of contemporaneous world phenomena in a smooth unraveling of a veritable epic that unfolds from the biblical Garden of Eden to authentic Brooklyn, from Israel to Africa, from the heavens to the earth." -Halim Majeed, Director, International Programs, CACCI.
