Dirk Pitt returns in the extraordinary new novel from
the #1 New York Times--bestselling author.
In A.D. 327, a Roman galley barely escapes a pirate attack with
its extraordinary cargo. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously
explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a
cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by
explosions. Does anything tie them together?
NUMA director Dirk Pitt is about to find out, as Roman artifacts
discovered in Turkey and Israel unnervingly connect to the rise of
a fundamentalist movement determined to restore the glory of the
Ottoman Empire, and to the existence of a mysterious "manifest,"
lost long ago, which if discovered again . . . just may change the
history of the world as we know it.
