A dealer in art and antiquities, Storm Syrrell arranges her life as she does her work – into neat, orderly categories. But when her grandfather is murdered, all certainties are crushingly replaced by suspicions. She struggles to understand his death – and decipher the frayed leather journal she finds hidden in his vault. Storm soon realizes that, far from being simply a discreet art broker, Sean Syrrell was a trusted go-between in the highest ranks of business and government in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. But not all of Sean’s associates were quite so lofty. Enter Harry Bennett, a scruffy professional treasure hunter just released from a Caribbean jail, followed by Emma Webb, a US government lawyer with links to Interpol. Storm pushes her doubts aside, locks the door to her Palm Beach art gallery, and opens herself to the quest begun by her grandfather. Their trail leads them ever farther afield – London, France, Istanbul, Cyprus – and ever deeper into danger. The thrill of the search is haunted by Storm’s determination to bring Sean’s murderers to justice. Storm and Harry in turn are targeted by an unknown assassin and saved from death only by Harry’s split-second reactions. Their quest homes in on the Copper Scroll of Qumran and controversial claims made by the Jewish historian Josephus. Hidden beneath the dust and mysteries of two thousand years lies the reason behind Sean Syrrell’s murder and the find of a lifetime: a fortune in gold of great historical significance. Storm begins to grasp the potential magnitude such artifacts will have on contemporary religion and politics – especially the competing historical claims to Jerusalem. Some seek to claim the gold for the treasure it represents; others are determined to destroy it. With the tangled motives of greed and power now in focus, old allies become new enemies. Through this, something unexpected tugs at Storm. The sacred relics represent a formidable metaphor to an ancient faith; will her search include a renewal of her own faith?

    " Clean, with action and adventure. This book also reminded me of a mix between a "National Treasure" type book and a "Da Vinci Code" type book. There was only a couple spots where the explinations were a little long, and I do wish there was just a smidge more romance. Great book! "

    " As the story started I was intrigued and loving it. By the time I was half way through I'm thinking will this guy get to the point. I was able to put this book down with only 20 pages to go. Not something I usually can or want to do. I might give this guy a second chance, but if this is his style there will not be a third read. "

    " this adventure novel has a lot of intrigue, tons of adventure, a love story, and an historical a put forth that is maybe not plausible, but maybe so??? a young woman inherits her fathers art gallery, dealing in antiquities. a deep sea fortune hunter finds himself mysteriously released from a north african prison. the fathers book of contacts and secret codes turns up in a safety deposit box with hints of treasure. and the game is afoot! the storyline and characters blow dan brown out of the water. this is much better than the davinci code. a fun read.
