(From the publisher):
A secret so momentous it threatens to change the course of history...
The most important archaeological discovery of all time sets irresistible forces in motion and alters forever the lives of three men and a woman:
- a celebrated Cardinal in the Roman Catholic church and the probable next pope, who is compelled against all his principles to plan the ultimate crime;
- a world-renowned archaeologist whose lust for fame carries him into the Israeli desert on a quest that promises immortality but threatens to destroy him;
- a beautiful but vulnerable young woman who is driven by events to make the agonizing choice between her faith and the first man she has ever loved; and
- a detective with the New York County District Attorney's Office who relentlessly investigates an international crime in the knowledge that the solution may shatter his own happiness.
