'The glass enclosure exploded outwards. Stabbing spears pierced his left side. But he barely felt the cuts as a wave of blast-furnace heat struck him, searing, burning away all the oxygen. The next explosion ripped Harry from his feet and threw his body clear across the gallery. But only flaming bones hit the security gate, melting themselves into the steel grating...' Lady Kara Kensington's family paid a high price in money and blood to found the gallery that now lies in ruins. And her search for answers is about to lead her into a world she never imagined existed: a lost city, buried beneath the Arabian desert, where something astonishing is waiting...A covert government operative hunting down a traitor is being drawn there as well. But at the end of a perilous journey lies an ageless power that can create a utopia - or tear down everything humankind has built over millennia of civilisation...
About the Author
James Rollins is the author of seven bestselling novels. An amateur spelunker and scuba enthusiast, he also holds a doctorate in veterinary medicine. He currently lives and writes in Sacramento, California.
James Rollins is already a top ten New York Times bestselling author. He has just received a massive six-figure advance for his new book in the States and rights have been sold in 20 countries. His novels are in the bestselling tradition of Dan Brown and Raymond Khoury. He's already been attracting excellent reviews: 'This novel about an ancient secret society and the race to find priceless antiquities is sure to be compared to Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, but, in every way, it's a much better book. Where Brown's bestseller was predictable despite its compelling premise, this tale is clever and suspenseful' Booklist. 'An adventure in the grand manner. Rollins takes the reader through the horror and intrigue...like no one else. The action never relents' Clive Cussler. Two other novels in the series have been signed up by Orion - MAP OF BONES and BLACK ORDER.
