Temple in Jerusalem becomes a race against time, terrorism, politics, and the
Jonathan Marcus is a promising young archeologist studying
at the American Academy in Rome when a terrible accident results in a fellow
student’s death and Jonathan’ expulsion. He abandons archeology for the law,
becoming a skillful advocate for unscrupulous antiquities dealers.
When Jonathan’s firm sends him to Rome to discredit the
testimony of a prominent U.N. antiquities official, a chance reunion leads to a
