He also took an interest in Islamic studies and Arabic, not to mention Persian, eventually pursuing the subjects at the University of Edinburgh. Those particular subject matters consumed Daniel’s life, Islam in particular.
The author even went so far as to take his trade to Mohammed V University in Morocco where he was to teach. Interestingly enough, Daniel resigned from the position shortly after he arrived. While he has claimed that his decision to leave came down to contractual issues and an improper working environment, Dead Easterman’s fans have been known craft conspiracy theories about what really happened.
Even though Daniel has studied Islam extensively, the author has a very negative view of the religion and hasn’t been shy about disparaging it, especially in his efforts as a pro-Israel Campaigner.

Besides his literature, Daniel Easterman has done work for British Think Tanks involved with matters related to Islam. This includes reporting on literature that could be termed as being hateful towards Islam.

Best Daniel Easterman Books
Daniel Easterman isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. However, the author took to writing international thrillers with a lot of fervor, with some of the best novels from Daniel Easterman including the following:
The Seventh Sanctuary: There is a plan in play, one that will see Israel destroyed and the Nazi Reich reborn. And David Rosen is determined to stop it. The American Archeologist stumbled upon the truth when his father and colleagues were killed.
David wasn’t willing to chock the deaths up to a coincidence and he began to look beneath the surface. Now, David and his Palestinian guide turned lover must do the impossible.
The Seventh Sanctuary is one of Daniel Easterman’s more popular thrillers. The book starts out like any other thriller. However, it quickly becomes clear that the content isn’t as escapist as one might have come to presume. Instead, there is a lot of passion in Daniel’s words, with his story exploring issues of love and idealism.
Daniel also ponders the question of evil. The book is visually compelling, creating lively cities and scorching deserts, not to mention all the chemistry that seems to spark between David and Leyla.
Like every good thriller, this one has a twist ending that caps off the whole story. It is easy to see why fans of the thriller genre would flock to this book, what with all the Nazis and hidden cities and ancient scrolls. Daniel definitely gets a little too ponderous and long-winded in a book that is definitely quite long.
Brotherhood of the Tomb: Patrick Canavan has a difficult task to accomplish. With the help of an Ethiopian priest, Patrick must prevent the reemergence of an ancient and secret Brotherhood. It all began decades ago, when the tomb of Jesus, his mother and brother was discovered.
The discovery had little to do with Patrick who was too busy falling in love with a girl called Francesca Contarini who had a strange cross around her neck.
By the time Francesca died two decades later, Patrick had joined and left the CIA, and his attempts at recapturing his youth back home where mired by a sinister man he notices watching him.
Now, as the bodies begin to pile up, Patrick knows that everything he has seen and heard is connected, all the murdered children and bald KGB agents. It is all connected and Patrick must solve the puzzle while he still has time.
This book clearly manifests Daniel Easterman’s expertise. The book utilizes a lot of biblical history as well as knowledge related to the Middle East.
