A race-against-time conspiracy mystery with a perilous twist from the bestselling writer of The First Apostle.
On the northern banks of the Vltava River, a rare occasion is happening. inside of a personal chapel, a high-born Hungarian girl is being laid to leisure. yet now not sooner than her middle is faraway from her physique, and she or he is buried underneath a layer of heavy stones -- lest she upward push back to prey upon her victims.
Holidaying within the world's most pretty urban, Chris Bronson and Angela Lewis find a desecrated tomb. inside of it's a lady skeleton and an arcane diary courting again hundreds of thousands of years. Written in Latin, it references a scroll that may supply a solution to an historical mystery. quickly corpses of younger women, all killed within the related ritualistic demeanour, begin showing during the urban. And whilst Angela disappears, Bronson understands that he needs to locate her earlier than she too is slaughtered.
But Bronson's hunt for Angela leads him again to the Island of the useless, and right into a conspiracy extra lethal than he may possibly ever have imagined.
