An ancient manuscript has remained concealed for centuries - within its pages lies the key to the most unholy secret known to mankind.
A sacred brotherhood has sworn, generation after generation, to protect this terrifying truth from those who would use it to unleash doomsday upon mankind. When the unthinkable happens, and the holy scroll is uncovered, the race is on to reveal the true meaning of the cryptic language.
Only one man, Dr. Thomas Lourds, the world's foremost scholar of ancient languages, who we first met in the best-selling novel The Atlantis Code, can safely decipher this most deadly scripture. Lourds soon becomes the bait in the most lethal manhunt - knowing he must confront the true face of evil if the world is to be saved.

"This one really moves... a very entertaining thriller." (Booklist)
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
This is a fast paced mystery with understated humor. It made time fly listening for clues which equals entertainment in audio. If you are a heavy mystery fan, than this maybe too predictable for you. See Amazon reviews
yes, this had all the elements from Indiana Jones and the DaVinci Code but, I was not looking to discover a new best seller author, just good entertainment that was not dark with terror. J.D. reads Dennis Lehane's books which are great but very dark. Unfortunately too dark for me. This author is great as he leaves you wanting to go buy the other reads to continue the professors adventures in audio read by J.Davis.
I love J.D. from his Sandra Brown's Mean Streak read. I have hunted out many authors trying to capture J.D. wonderful performance and talented reads. He has saved this series of #2,3,4 which I intend to buy all. I will skip #1 as that reader got awful reviews. J.D. made our hero funny, brilliant and yes sometimes bumbling. JD gives our professor the sexiness the author intended.
yes, when I realized that great intentions can lead to things lost.
note: I am a core romance/mystery listener so beware deep heavy mystery fans.
Another great story but the performance was an exhibit unneeded sarcasm and sultry overtones. Weakened the story. Performance of Atlantis Code was much more believable (for a work of fiction).
Loved the book and all the mysteries.
I highly recommend it to everyone
You will not be disappointed the only negative thing I can say is that it did not need the explicit sex scenes
