1948: an archaeological team in Turkey is slaughtered after making an earth-shattering discovery. More than fifty years later, a group of American archaeologists is murdered in the Judean desert. Chief Inspector Danielle Barnea of Israel's National Police is called to investigate, accompanied by Palestinian detective Ben Kamal, whose nephew was among the victims. Joining forces once again, Ben and Danielle are swept into a maelstrom of secrets and subterfuge that spans three continents. The duo closes in on a solution to a mystery that could destroy them at the same time as it changes civilization forever.
The story is based on a premise that makes no sense. Why did the Swiss guard bury the scroll if they thought it would destroy Christian religion? Either burn it or put it in a vault. If you don't burn it then explain why it needs to stay in tact since the Swiss guard is murdering everyone to keep the secret.
