Dead of night. Salonika, Greece, December 1939. A clandestine order of monks embarks on a desperate mission: to transport a mysterious vault to a hiding place high in the Italian Alps. Its sinister contents, concealed for centuries, could rip apart the Christian world. Now, as the Nazi threat marches inexorably closer, good men and evil will be drawn into a violent and deadly hunt, sparking a relentless struggle that could forever change the world as we know it.

"His most ambitious novel. Its twists and turns carry the reader on a fast bobsled run.... A marvelously unflagging imagination." (The New York Times)

I got bored with this one. I love Ludlum's stuff, but the characters were too hard to follow and I found it hard to listen to. I gave it back
This is the first Ludlum book I did not enjoy
None of the character development worked for me
I didn't finish it
I'm a big Ludlum fan. Others may enjoy this one but I stopped about a third of the way through.
