Publisher's Summary

Deep beneath the windswept waters near Istanbul, marine archaeologist Jack Howard and his crack team of experts have uncovered a clue to the location of the lost golden menorah of Jerusalem that was plundered during the Crusades. Meanwhile, in a dusty cathedral library, someone has unearthed a long-forgotten medieval map. Together the two discoveries will solve an ancient mystery - and spark a race to stop a present-day conspiracy of staggering proportions. From diving into the core of an arctic iceberg to the last stand of a Viking warship to an extraordinary revelation deep in the jungles of Central America, Jack is headed straight into a globe-spanning clash of civilizations - and to a confrontation with a killer on a shattering crusade of his own.

Critic Reviews

"Those with an already-strong sense of Roman, barbarian, Viking and English history, as well as those with a sincere desire to learn, will appreciate Gibbins's alternate history of King Harald Hardrada's defeat." ( Publishers Weekly)

So good but with such a singular flaw

SPOILER ALERT...








SPOILER:
You’re going to take me on that adventure without the payoff you promised us from chapter 1!?! How dare you sir? Obviously I’m in for the next book but COME ON!

Good narration and the series is great, but you’re killing me here David. You’re killing me!
