An earthquake in Masada, Israel, kills hundreds and reveals a tomb buried in the heart of the mountain. A trio of investigators - Sergeant Jordan Stone, a military forensic expert; Father Rhun Korza, a Vatican priest; and Dr. Erin Granger, a brilliant but disillusioned archaeologist - are sent to explore the macabre discovery, a subterranean temple holding the crucified body of a mummified girl.
But a brutal attack at the site sets the three on the run, thrusting them into a race to recover what was once preserved in the tomb's sarcophagus: a book rumored to have been written by Christ's own hand, a tome that is said to hold the secrets to His divinity. The enemy who hounds them is like no other, a force of ancient evil directed by a leader of impossible ambitions and incalculable cunning.

This story was great! It has the crisp, action-filled style that mark James Rollins' work. I have never read anything from Rebecca Cantrell before, but my hat's off to her too! The two writers have woven their tale well and the narrative seamlessly blends their voices so it all sounds like one writer. The story combines history, adventure, ancient artifacts, and an added bite. They've thrown good and bad vampires into the mix--only this one is written for adults without all the angst of young adult novels. Quite a bit to pack into one story! I can't wait for the next in the series.
