He was called by many names—Columb, Colom, Colón—but we
know him as Christopher Columbus. Many questions about him
exist: Where was he born, raised, and educated? Where did
he die? How did he discover the New World?
None have ever been properly answered.
And then there is the greatest secret of all.
From Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author, comes
an exciting new adventure—one that challenges everything
we thought we knew about the discovery of America.
Pulitzer Prize–winning investigative journalist Tom Sagan
has written hard-hitting articles from hot spots around
the world. But when a controversial report from a war-torn
region is exposed as a fraud, his professional reputation
crashes and burns. Now he lives in virtual exile—haunted
by bad decisions and the shocking truth he can never
prove: that his downfall was a deliberate act of sabotage
by an unknown enemy. But before Sagan can end his torment
with the squeeze of a trigger, fate intervenes in the form

Zachariah Simon has the look of a scholar, the soul of a
scoundrel, and the zeal of a fanatic. He also has Tom
Sagan’s estranged daughter at his mercy. Simon desperately
wants something only Sagan can supply: the key to a 500-

significance in the modern world. For both Simon and Sagan
the stakes are high, the goal intensely personal, the
consequences of opposing either man potentially
catastrophic. On a perilous quest from Florida to Vienna
to Prague and finally to the mountains of Jamaica, the two
men square off in a dangerous game. Along the way, both of
their lives will be altered—and everything we know about
Christopher Columbus will change.
