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)
