"The story behind first-time writer D. J. McIntosh's new book The Witch of Babylon would make any aspiring author salivate: Retired city functionary turned writer hits it big; her novel is slated to be published in 16 countries. The story within the page-turning thriller will entertain the rest of us.

"McIntosh's main character, a street-smart Turkish-American art dealer, races against the bad guys as they search for an elusive Assyrian treasure that will reveal information that is key to locating ancient treasure. One of the novel's major motifs is alchemy and the pursuit of the formula for turning base metals into gold."
