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.
A priceless treasure recovered. A powerful empire resurrected. Dirk Pitt is on the move.
