Virgil's pick from the warehouse sends the Institute of Antiquities group to Egypt. He picked what look like giant pool tiles and a small figurine. However, the liaison in Egypt is Rick's estranged father, Field General Nels Lundgren, and the person sent on behalf of the Egyptian Department of Antiquities is Dr. Carruthers, the original group member who walked away.
Carruthers' presence angers the colonel, as it violates the agreement made when Carruthers left the group. What the team finds on the dig is not what it seems at first and second blush. Further, wannabe terrorists are intent on taking the team hostage. Irina's pick from the warehouse is unknown, eye-opening work on the atmosphere by Father Giordano Bruno that may have contributed to the church putting him to death.

Great amalgamation of adventure and science fiction with a good twist ending! And it's rooted in enough real science to make it plausible. I want to know more about that ancient group!"
