In the latest international thriller from bestselling author Boyd
Morrison, former combat engineer Tyler Locke races against time to unearth the
truth about the fabled touch of King Midas.
Tyler Locke’s routine commute on a Washington State ferry is
interrupted by a chilling anonymous call: his father has been kidnapped, and a
truck bomb is set to detonate onboard in twenty minutes. When Tyler reaches the
bomb on the boat’s car deck, he’s stunned to find classical languages expert
Stacy Benedict waiting for him. She’s received the same threat, and her sister
has also been taken.
In order to disarm the bomb, Tyler and Stacy must work together to
solve an engineering puzzle—a puzzle written in ancient Greek. But preventing
the explosion is only the first step; they soon learn the entire setup is a
test created by a ruthless criminal who forces them to go on a seemingly

within the workings of a cryptic artifact: the Antikythera Mechanism, a device
designed by Archimedes himself. To save their loved ones and prevent their
captors from recovering a treasure that will finance unspeakable devastation,
the two scramble to Italy, Germany, Greece, and finally to the streets of New
York City in a race against the clock to find the truth behind the story of
The Vault combines an
