When I saw the title of this book, I knew that I had to read it!

Think Indiana Jones with a mixture of Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon and you have Dr. Kevin Elliot and Dr. Jill Gates.  Elliott and Gates are archaeologists on a dig near the Dead Sea.  Their historical find puts them and their team in danger!

What is this find and why is it so important that two opposing societies come out of the woodwork?  One society wants the archaeologists and everyone associated with them dead and the artifacts destroyed, while the other society wants to protect them and tell the world about the find.

Lewis takes the reader on a roller coaster ride after Elliot’s and Gates’ team members and the Israeli police who were sent to protect them are killed. Running from the shores of the Dead Sea with the only living police officer, Moshe, the two are dependent upon him to get them out of the country.

Trust no one!  Tell no one!  Do what you have to do to stay alive!
