Description: The X-Files meets The Relic when a powerful ancient artifact falls into the hands of a terrorist.
Dan Rawlins, a world-famous archeologist working out of New York's Metropolitan Museum, asks his assistant (and sometime girlfriend) to unearth half of a broken Egyptian ankh from the museum's collection. But she disappears into the bowels of the museum, only to turn up brutally murdered at the foot of Cleopatra's Needle, the obelisk in Central Park.
The relic is nowhere to be found.
Meanwhile, Jacinda El-Bahri, a Mossad agent, is running for her life in Cairo after stealing the other half of the ankh from a powerful terrorist. Known as Salameh, he plans to use the relic's incredible energy to unleash a power of biblical proportions. After Jacinda's hotel room is bombed, she escapes and boards a freighter bound for Cyprus - only to awaken and find the ship abandoned, and its hold filled with crates of mummies.
Some of the answers may be in an ancient text recently delivered into Dan's hands. It tells the story of an ancient pharaoh and his struggles with neighboring kingdoms three thousand years ago. The ankh was fought over then, as it is fought over now.
Across three continents and three thousand years the struggle to reunite the ancient artifact rages. And Dan and Jacinda, caught in the throes of an ancient evil, may be the only hope for the modern world.
