A black rock cube topped with an amber horn, found in the long buried ruins of a 3500-year-old tomb. Its discovery triggered a global storm of intrigue and espionage, international theft and hijacking, diplomacy and war -- even before its mystery became known:
The artifact should not have been in a Mycenaean tomb. And what was inside the artifact should not have been on Earth at all. It may have already destroyed one world. It could destroy ours.
