The descendants of Abraham, Jews, Muslims and Christians have been locked in battle for millennia, marring the earth and the face of humanity with one destructive skirmish and war after another.

Radical, super-secretive and sometimes seemingly supernatural groups of those bent on global domination have manipulated the world’s population to the brink of annihilation on more than one occasion. If not for the counterbalance of an equally secretive and powerful force of peace known simply as “The 12″ they may well have succeeded by now.

At the heart of some of the the world’s oldest secrets “The Stone of David” holds the key to a body of knowledge with the power to unravel the tidy facade of global stability and provide ultimate power to the possessor. An unusual alliance of old enemies has carved a new facet into this landscape of power struggles and forces Laura Wells, a former CIA agent and her husband Alexander, one of “The 12″ out of seclusion and into full conflict with those bent on igniting the tenth Crusade and WWIII.

Through new alliances, uncovered secrets between them, and the use of an array of stunning technology, Laura and Alexander take the fight to the heart of this global meltdown and to the most furiously contested patch of earth that is Jerusalem.

Archaeologist Sheppard Smyth has staked his career and the honorable memory of his wife and partner on proving his widely panned theory: Cleopatra VII, the last sovereign pharaoh of Egypt, was not a victim of suicide as history suggests, but of a well-concealed murder.

The statue, however, is only the first clue suggesting a mysterious connection between Mesopotamia and Mesoamerica, and possibly – beyond. Suddenly thrust into the heated rivalry between sexy and enigmatic antiquities thief Victoria Kent and the infamous Russian mafioso Dmitri Kronastia, Shep finds himself a common pawn played by forces working to see out a quest older than the pyramids and cloaked in the Mayan Doomsday prophecy of 12.21.12.
