About this title

Synopsis:

'I scrambled onto my knees, pushing the automatic rifle forward to cover one flank. In that instant they opened on us. The air around me was torn by the sound of a thousand bull whips, while the gunfire sounded like a stick dragged swiftly across a corrugated-iron fence.' A hazy aerial photograph and a sinister curse are the only clues Dr Ben Kazin has before he stumbles on the archaeological discovery of a lifetime. Beneath the red cliffs of Botswanaland a magnificent unknown civilization has remained buried for millennia. But the magic of uncovering a lost culture is harshly interrupted by the violence of terrorists, love, intrigue and the breathtaking secrets of centuries...

From the Inside Flap:

It all beings with a blurry, black-and-white aerial photograph. To the trained eyes of Dr. Benjamin Kazin, it is the archaeological discovery of a lifetime: evidence of an unknown ancient African civilization and their legendary City of the Moon, a city that, according to myth, vanishes with the light of day. Now Dr. Kazin, with his lovely assistant, Sally, and wealthy businessman Louren Sturvesant, launch an exploration that will soon threaten to unleash the forgotten violence of the past into the precarious present . . .
