A brazen and violent crime occurs at the crossroads of the Christian, Islamic, and Jewish faiths--the shocking theft of ancient artifacts hidden for many centuries in a secret vault beneath Jerusalem's Temple Mount. In its wake, thirteen Israeli policemen and soldiers are dead--and the fuse is lit on a volatile Mideast powder keg, threatening an explosion that could devastate the world.

In Italy, American forensic scientist Charlotte Hennesey has answered a Vatican summons asking for help. Joining with Italian anthropologist Giovanni Bersei, she embarks upon a perilous journey down a twisted path of revelations prowled by sinister zealots and relentless cold killers. For they must expose the astonishing secrets locked in the ancient bones resting in a newly unearthed burial box--the skeleton of a man who lived and died in the first century; a man who was scourged and stabbed . . . and crucified.

This novel was written nine years earlier than the exceptional 'Bounty' and is, unfortunately, not as good. It's similar in theme to 'The Davinci Code' but unlike Dan Brown, this author is not a terrible writer. The story is fast-paced and it's also good to note that the characters are not all stereotypes - who knew that all Catholics were not good and that all Muslims were not bad?
