As the general manager of 9Sense Publishing, one of the most powerful publishers in the world, Katherine Sinclaire is used to high-stakes intrigue.
But she faces a new kind of trouble when she receives an urgent call from 9Sense CEO Bruce Aron. Arriving at his office, Katherine discovers a gruesome sight: Bruce's fatally wounded body, seemingly done in by his own hand. She also finds that her mentor has left a flash drive labeled with his nickname for her. It's the first in a series of increasingly confounding clues that will lead Katherine from London to Lake Bolsena, a site of archeological mystery set deep on a secluded Italian island. There, with the help of Bruce's old friend, enigmatic financier Jethro Blake, Katherine uncovers a startling secret.
Now, caught in the middle of a dark and dangerous game, Katherine and Jethro must delve into the heart of an ancient civilization and expose a conspiracy long buried by history. Can she stop a thousand-year-old plot - before its bloody final rite is carried out?

Probably not. The summary I read was interesting enough and I love a good fiction novel, but this came off as some of the most obvious reading since Twilight. I'm not sure what they were going for there, but the story was sloppy, the characters were uninteresting, and the premise was full of holes. I had to rewind several times because it could not keep my attention. Too bad because it could have been good. Maybe something was lost in translation or my ugly American side is coming out as culturally blind. The story was missing a lot and the characters were bland- even with all of the character development. Go read something from Sanderson if your looking for a new perspective.
It may have been how the audiobook was edited, but it was incredibly choppy and there were distracting pauses. Worse, her male voices bordered on laughable. They reminded me of the Dark Knight jokes.
That Italian accent sounded like Jamaican. Other than that it was entertaining. Not sure how much is based on any truth.
