Présentation de l'éditeur
ordnance expert Tristan Wyld is sent to the Western Desert of
Egypt to represent the Secretariat in a murder investigation. The
victim, a biblical archeologist, has left one clue—the emblem of a
forgotten sixteenth century adventurer.
Propelled into a world of conspiracy, riddles, and ruthless brutality,
Wyld pursues a centuries-old trail—from the Cancelleria Secreta
of the former Venetian Republic, to the resting place of France’s
greatest hero. From a lost Nineteenth Dynasty tomb to the fetid
underground of the Old City of Jerusalem, Wyld is racing to
unravel a mystery never meant to be solved. In the balance: the
most awesome weapon ever wielded by man.
