The tomb of China’s First Emperor, guarded by an underground army of terra-cotta warriors, has remained sealed for more than 2,000 years. Though it’s regarded as one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world, the Chinese government won’t allow anyone to open it. Why?

That question is at the heart of a dilemma faced by former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone, whose life is shattered when he receives an anonymous note carrying an unfamiliar Web address. Logging on, he sees Cassiopeia Vitt, a woman who’s saved his life more than once, being tortured at the hands of a mysterious man who has a single demand: Bring me the artifact she’s asked you to keep safe. The only problem is, Malone doesn’t have a clue what the man is talking about, since Cassiopeia has left nothing with him. So begins Malone’s most harrowing adventure to date—one that offers up astounding historical revelations, pits him against a ruthless ancient brotherhood, and sends him from Denmark to Belgium to Vietnam then on to China, a vast and mysterious land where danger lurks at every turn.

    " Cotton Malone, a bookseller, finds himself embroiled in yet another international intrigue. When he receives a cryptic note and goes to the website it encloses, he sees Cassiopoeia Vitt being waterboarded. To save her, the captors want a lamp that she stole and left with him for safe-keeping. If he wants to save her, he has to exchange the lamp. The only problem is he doesn't have it. He knows that he has to save her (and figure out his feelings for her), but doesn't even know what he is looking for. Enter Stephanie Nelle, a former nemesis (or friend?) and some high-ranking figures fighting for control of China and a potentially world-changing discovery about oil, and you have another thrilling international adventure full of twists and turns. Who knew booksellers would have such interesting lives! "

    " In terms of plot and level of caring about the characters, eh. I gave it two stars instead of one because there is some fascinating science and Chinese history that I enjoyed reading about. "

    " Berry has another great book with this one. The story moves quickly and the extent of the research the author does to craft is story is always evident. I look forward to reading more Steve Berry books. Although I like the Cotton Malone character, the early books Berry did where he changed his main characters around were good as well. I wouldn't mind seeing more variety in that regard. "
