Secrets lead to lies. Lies lead to betrayal.
A bombing at the Cairo Museum rips archaeologist Leila Sterling’s mother from her again. Leila’s enemy, Faris Al-Rashid, claims her mother is safe, but demands Leila complete a task for him if she ever wants to see her again: bring him the terrifyingly dangerous Scroll of Leonidas. If Leila fails, Faris promises to destroy both her and the man she loves.
But not everything is as it seems when Leila sets out on her quest for truth and justice. Even Xander, her fiancé, has been keeping secrets. Secrets that may be the death of both of them.
In this gripping adventure, we follow Leila and Xander from the Great Pyramids of Giza to the teeming backstreets of Athens, from the dark, winding tunnels of lost tombs to the glittering, turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea.
Can Leila not only find the answer to one of history’s greatest mysteries, but can she survive the ultimate betrayal? Can she still save those she loves… before time runs out?
