In Jill Dudley's second book "Holy Smoke!" she travels around Turkey and Egypt on a religious quest, examining the three monotheistic religions and how they emerged from the pagan past. Unlike her first book "Ye Gods!" in which she examines how Christianity emerged from the old Olympian gods of Greece, here she widens her field of vision to include Judaism and Islam too. For those who have little knowledge about Islam, it is an opportunity to read about some of the stories and legends of the Moslem faith, many of which have fascinating roots in Judaism. On all the trips Jill has been accompanied by Harry, her husband, who remains true to his Christian upbringing, taking Christianity on trust, whilst she searches for satisfactory answers to impossibly difficult questions. It is a light and entertaining read as well as being informative and thought-provoking.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"'It is Jill's stance as "agnostic but quite religious" that marks out her travel writing as something special... Holy Smoke! is another winning work, with her sceptical forays again entertainingly set off against her husband Harry, who takes Christianity on trust.' Western Daily Press 'Holy Smoke! is an account of Jill's travels through Turkey and Egypt between the 9/11 tragedy and the war in Iraq. In search of answers to questions posed by the religious beliefs of Christians, Jews and Moslems, she takes the reader on a fascinating journey through facts and legends throughout Istanbul, down Anatolia to the Aegean and around Egypt...
