The Shroud of Heaven Publisher's Summary

On the bloody battlefields of Iraq, one man's quest to find God will unleash hell.

For more than a decade, Nick Kismet has traveled the world protecting priceless relics and cultural heritage sites from looters while searching for answers to the mystery that has haunted him since the first Gulf War - a mystery that has defined his life. Now, a new war has brought him back to the bloody battlefield where his search began.

Summoned by his friend and mentor, Pierre Chiron, Kismet soon finds himself on the trail of the holy relics of Solomon's Temple, captured centuries before by Babylonian conquerors and thought to be lost to history. But Chiron's quest is not merely to find ancient artifacts; he seeks to find proof - the very fingerprint - of God.

Driven to uncover secrets that have haunted mankind for millennia, pursued by a mysterious assassin and an enemy consumed by hatred, Nick and Pierre journey into the desert to find the terrible truth that lies behind...the Shroud of Heaven.

    The greatest treasures from the ancient world have been brought together in one place - a magnificent floating exhibition aboard a luxury cruise liner - and the wealthy, powerful and famous have come to bask in the glow of ancient riches. Unfortunately, someone is about to crash the party in a big way. When Nick Kismet foils an attempted pirate takeover of the cruise ship and rescues the lovely Elisabeth Neuell, little does he suspect that he has been drawn into a dangerous game controlled by diabolical occult scholar Dr. John Leed.
