American radiologist Peter Ross just wanted a vacation. But when he meets the beautiful Angela Locke on a Spanish beach, he soon finds himself caught in a murderous crossfire between rival gangs seeking a precious artifact.
From Barcelona to the rain-swept streets of Paris, from the towers of the Alhambra to its darkest catacombs, Peter Ross is an ordinary man in desperate circumstances: racing to uncover a secret lost for centuries, before he becomes its next victim.

As an active / outdoor guy, I love listening to audiobooks while trail running, hiking, etc.
I love Michael Crichton and was a bit wary buying this book - after all, this book was written in the late 60's before he really started to develop his writing style / career. After the first hour I almost stopped because the plot was just too strange, but I was on a long training run and didn't have anything else to listen to. After the second hour it got really good and it was hard to stop. I'd recommend this book but there is something fishy (to me) about the claim that it was written in 1968. At the end of the book one of the characters mentions "taking the DVD out of the video recorder and placing it on the desk". Although I was born in 1970, I know for a fact that neither CD Roms of DVD's existed back then - so someone has done some additional writing / editing of Michael Crichton's original work.
