    Thrilling, intriguing

    I admire the research Mr. Kuzneski puts into his novels. They sound almost like a collaboration between Dan Brown, Indiana Jones, and Clive Cussler! ..Show More »

    In 1890, a man collapses near the Piazza della Santa Carita in Naples, Italy. Strangers manage to revive him, but he is unable to speak. Police carry him to the nearest hospital, where he is not admitted because he has no money or identification. Frantically trying to communicate, he scribbles notes in ancient Greek and German that would have told the world about a discovery of immense importance - if anyone had read them.
