Publisher's Summary

An earthquake in Masada, Israel, kills hundreds and reveals a tomb buried in the heart of the mountain. A trio of investigators - Sergeant Jordan Stone, a military forensic expert; Father Rhun Korza, a Vatican priest; and Dr. Erin Granger, a brilliant but disillusioned archaeologist - are sent to explore the macabre discovery, a subterranean temple holding the crucified body of a mummified girl.
But a brutal attack at the site sets the three on the run, thrusting them into a race to recover what was once preserved in the tomb's sarcophagus: a book rumored to have been written by Christ's own hand, a tome that is said to hold the secrets to His divinity. The enemy who hounds them is like no other, a force of ancient evil directed by a leader of impossible ambitions and incalculable cunning.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to the first 15 minutes of this book and i do not think that i will be able to listen to the rest. Why didn't the author's have Peter Jay Fernandez do the reading. when you have a good reader why change?????

James Rollins goes full on twi-tard.

Previous novels released from James Rollins were riveting, thrilling page turners. Unfortunately, his latest work is not. To put it bluntly this work feels to have heavily borrowed from the twilight series. Also the narrator is a bit dry and unsuited for this reading.

Vampires, really? Once I discovered this "plot twist" the book lost all appeal to me. I attempted to return it, however there seems to be some issues with audible returning this work...of...well something.

If this character trait was revealed within the book summary I would have saved some $$$ and moved on...Hopefully someone else will see this and have this additional information and move on to something a little more worthwhile.
