""...tightly wound and marvellously fast paced..." "
The evening before a sensational revelation at a conference, the reclusive archaeologist Roland Petitier is found dying in his Athens hotel room. Why did a police officer beat Augustin Pascal into a coma and why is the Georgian psychopath Mikhail Nergadze so interested in Petitiers discovery?
Daniel Knox and his partner Gaille Bonnard set out to clear Pascal's name and are drawn ever deeper into the complexities of a mystery concerning as yet undiscovered ancient artefacts and political high stakes. This quest leads them into contact with the thoroughly amoral Nergadze and his murderous henchmen.
