An archeological thriller set first against the backdrop of the Iraq war, then moving to Israel and Cambridge as it gains momentum to reach an action-packed apotheosis in exotic Thailand.
While the American armed forces are battling it out with Saddam Hussein's republican guard, a young female archeologist finds an ancient but mysterious Sumerian tablet on the Iraqi black market, which talks about the biblical flood but also contains some disturbing mathematical formulae and predictions. When she notifies her university colleagues about her discovery, she soon finds out that dark forces including a ruthless millionaire art collector and an obscure Jewish Cabbalistic sect are also very much interested in the artifact and will recoil at nothing to gain possession of it. To remain ahead of the millionaire's henchmen and the esoteric assassins while attempting to decipher the formulae, she joins forces with a former American intelligence officer. Together they travel first to Israel and then to Cambridge where further clues are hidden. But as their pursuers close in on the couple, she discovers that the handsome American too has a double agenda...
