It looked as though stockbroker and amateur archaeologist Brian Sadler had hit the jackpot when he joined Warren Taylor & Currant, Dallas'; hottest investment brokerage firm. He was on his way to making a million dollars when the FBI arrived to investigate the firm's ties to the Mob, and Brian had to find a way out.

In his last deal at the firm, he raised millions of dollars for Bijan Rarities, a New York dealer in antiquities, then joined the gallery himself.

Bijan Rarities was making headlines. It was auctioning the sarcophagus of Inkharaton, a pharaoh whose tomb was discovered in 2005. This was the first intact burial site ever found in Egypt's Valley of the Kings. The auction was televised worldwide and catapulted the gallery to new heights. Bijan's name became a household word in the rarities field.

When Darius Nazir, Brian's mentor and the gallery's founder, suddenly dies, Brian finds himself owning the gallery and searching for the scroll that would put him on the map as one of the world's top dealers in antiquities. Knowing he has to raise millions to buy the artifacts, he finds a solution in a plan outlined by mobster John Spedino. As long as things go according to plan, the multi-million dollar acquisition will come to fruition perfectly. But when things go terribly wrong, Brian Sadler could lose his gallery . . . and his life.

Jetting from Dallas to New York, London, the French Riviera and Egypt's ancient tombs, this fast-moving archaeological adventure will keep you turning pages to learn the outcome of the acquisition of the world's most important document, The Bethlehem Scroll.
