From the author of Number One bestseller The Righteous Men. How are hundreds of unexplained deaths, spanning the globe, connected to the last great secret of the Second World War?

Tom Byrne has fallen from grace since his days as an idealistic young lawyer in New York. Now he'll work for anyone – as long as the money's right.

So when the United Nations call him in to do their dirty work, he accepts the job without hesitation. A suspected suicide bomber shot by UN security staff has turned out to be a harmless old man: Tom must placate the family and limit their claims for compensation.

In London, Tom meets the dead man’s alluring daughter, Rebecca, and learns that her father was not quite the innocent he seemed. He unravels details of a unique, hidden brotherhood, united in a mission that has spanned the world and caused hundreds of unexplained deaths.

Pursued by those ready to kill to uncover the truth, Tom has to unlock a secret that has lain buried for more than 60 years – the last great secret of the Second World War.

Review:

Praise for Sam Bourne:

‘The biggest challenger to Dan Brown’s crown ... a highly charged, theologically accurate tale’ Mirror

‘Compulsive reading ... successfully blends ancient teachings with the highly charged ways of the 21st century ... bears all the hallmarks of a blockbuster’ Daily Express

‘The best thriller I’ve read in years’ Piers Morgan

'More readable than The Da Vinci Code – the sense of menace is darker and the characters more believable' Esquire

‘Sharper and vastly more authoritative than Dan Brown’ Telegraph

‘A gripping read’ Guardian

‘Immensely diverting ... a pacy read, constructed with a crisp control of tension and narrative drive’ Observer

From the Back Cover:

Once an idealistic lawyer, Tom Byrne will work for anyone now, if the money's right. An official at the United Nations needs him to placate the family of a harmless old man mistaken for a suicide bomber and shot to death by UN Security. But Byrne soon discovers this victim was not quite as innocent as he appeared to be.

Together with the dead man's daughter, Byrne uncovers the existence of a clandestine brotherhood responsible for hundreds of unexplained deaths worldwide. Now Tom is a marked man--a target of assassins who will destroy him for what he's learned--as he races to unearth a mystery buried for more than six decades . . . the last great secret of World War II.
