In this epic thriller by popular British journalist and author Tom Knox, a secret lurks beneath blazing sands - triggering ritualistic slaughter and threatening the foun­dations of modern thought. When an archaeological dig in Kurdistan unearths a structure far older than Stonehenge or the Great Pyramids, British reporter Rob Lutrell rushes to the scene. But this intriguing assignment takes a turn for the worse when sabotage and murder cast a frightening shadow over the site.
