Publisher's Summary

Dead of night. Salonika, Greece, December 1939. A clandestine order of monks embarks on a desperate mission: to transport a mysterious vault to a hiding place high in the Italian Alps. Its sinister contents, concealed for centuries, could rip apart the Christian world. Now, as the Nazi threat marches inexorably closer, good men and evil will be drawn into a violent and deadly hunt, sparking a relentless struggle that could forever change the world as we know it.

"His most ambitious novel. Its twists and turns carry the reader on a fast bobsled run.... A marvelously unflagging imagination." ( The New York Times)

Well-written thrill-ride of religious antiquity.

Historical fiction at it's best! A tightly woven account regarding the pursuit of truth within religion. Mesmerizing, thought-provoking and plausible.

an obvious picked up and put down work in progress

What was most disappointing about Robert Ludlum’s story?

what the secret manuscripts in the end supposedly contained (highly blasphemous) and the disjointed plot.

Have you listened to any of Grover Gardner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

great reader
