Dr. Evan Knight, a maverick historian and martial arts expert, is on a lifelong quest for the Garden of Eden. He researches it, he paints it, he even dreams about it. One day, while giving a college lecture on the Garden, he recognizes a compelling and beautiful woman from his recurring dream. She's no ordinary woman and she's about to introduce him to a world of danger, wonder and ancient history that will challenge his courage and threaten his safety, and hers.

Over the course of a year, the members of the now infamous Bling Ring allegedly burglarized some of the biggest names in young Hollywood. Driven by celebrity worship, vanity, and the desire to look and dress like the rich and famous, these seven teenagers made headlines for using Google maps, Facebook, and TMZ to track the comings and goings of their targets. Many of the houses were unlocked. Alarms disabled. A "perfect" crime - celebrities already had so much, why shouldn't the Bling Ring take their share?
