The mysterious death of a Catholic priest has been met with suspicion by his brother, Thomas Knight - and the grave silence of church authorities. All Thomas knows is that his brother died in the Philippines, the last stop of an international trek researching the history of Christian symbols. But Thomas and curator Deborah Miller aren't alone in retracing the priest's perilous and labyrinthine path. Their every move is being shadowed by a fanatical cabal of agents who are desperate to hide the astronishing secret Thomas's brother stumbled upon - and willing to kill to keep it buried in shadows of history forever.
"Not only is Hartley's novel well paced, with enough twists and turns to keep most thriller fans satisfied, he avoids the missteps of most attempts to cash in on the Da Vinci Code zeitgeist by focusing on the faithful rather than freewheeling conspiracies.... [T]his slam-bang title is a very fun, surprisingly satisfying read." (Publishers Weekly)
"Exactly the kind of archaeological thriller I love." (Douglas Preston)
