Chris Bronson is back in another fast-paced, race-against-time thriller, from the bestselling author of The First Apostle.

An extraordinary discovery.

When his old friend, Angela, invites him out to her archaeological dig in the Iraqi desert, Chris Bronson is expecting a relaxing few days and an overdue catch-up. But when they arrive at the site they find her colleagues slaughtered and a recent discovery defaced.

An ancient mystery.

Their only clue is an incomplete inscription, which holds the key to uncovering the truth behind a centuries-old secret. With unknown assassins hot on their heels, Chris and Angela are forced into a desperate hunt across the globe for the final piece of the puzzle. And if they don’t find it first, the consequences could be fatal . . .

The race of their lives.
