For nearly three thousand years, Jezebel has been invoked as the ultimate femme fatale, the embodiment of wanton wickedness. But journalist Hazleton's retelling of her story creates a radically different portrait. The moment the Phoenician princess Jezebel arrives in Israel for her wedding to King Ahab, the alliance is denounced by the prophet Elijah. The new queen and the feared prophet go head to head in a dramatic and bloody conflict pitting polytheism against monotheism, tolerance against righteousness, pragmatism against ideology. Hazleton reveals the real story of the downfall of a powerful woman, and how its consequences reverberate to the present day.--From publisher description.

Well written book, Ms. Hazleton made
the story of Jezebel come alive, left me with much to think about in that
the politics in effect during that time which led to actions being taken by all major players are relevent today.
