When a young Crusader knight is captured by a Saracen tribe he expects to lose his life. But instead he is entrusted with a secret that will echo down the centuries. In the ruins of present day Iraq, historian Becca Krueger discovers a strange artefact—but before she can decode its message, it is stolen from her in a brutal attack. Desperate to find out who could place such value on her find, she starts asking questions which could have lethal answers. Meanwhile, Special Forces Lieutenant Rob Morrow is tracking one of the last Iraq’s regime’s diehards—and in a raid on his suspected hideout, Rob discovers a bizarre crypt that hints at cruel tortures and experiments. Soon Becca and Rob are tracking the same man and set out on a quest that will lead them into mysteries from the dark legends of Eastern Europe to the strange life of a French renaissance Count and an ancient poetic text about eternal life.
