What started as a suspicious explosion in a picturesque
Parisian neighborhood could end in revelations that would
shatter the beliefs of millions. American lawyer Lang
Reilly is determined to find the real cause of the blast
that killed his sister. But his investigation will lead him
into the darkest corners of history and religion. And it
may cost him his life. Lang’s search for the truth begins
with a painting his sister bought just before she died.
Could there be something about the painting itself that
made someone want to kill her? Every mysterious step of the
way, Lang unearths still more questions, more hidden
secrets and more danger, until finally he arrives at the
heart of a centuries-old secret order that will stop at
nothing to protect what is theirs.
