9780099515739: The Lost Temple

For three thousand years, the world’s most dangerous treasure has been lost. Now the code that reveals its hiding place is about to be broken...

Sam Grant is a disgraced ex-Special Forces soldier and an adventurer by trade. But he has a secret: six years ago, a dying archaeologist entrusted him with his life’s work — transcripts of mysterious writing found in a hidden cave on Crete.

Deciphered, it could lead to one of the greatest prizes in history. But the treasure is as dangerous as it is valuable. The CIA wants it; so do the Russians. Helped by a brilliant Oxford professor, and a beautiful Greek archaeologist with her
own secrets to hide, Grant is plunged into a labyrinth of ancient cults, forgotten mysteries and lost civilizations. But time is running out.

The secrets of the distant past may hold the key to the newest threats of the modern world...

Deciphered, it could lead to one of the greatest prizes in history. Which is why both the CIA and the British Secret Intelligence Service are looking for it as well...
