When a mysterious granite and cypress Egyptian box is found
hidden away in a secret room in the palatial Biltmore
Estate, twin scientists Alex and Nicholas Shepard work to
unlock the secret of its intricate dials, gauges, crystals,
and carvings. What they discover has the potential to make
them rich beyond their wildest dreams. But it could also
collapse financial markets, bankrupt corporations around the
globe, and destroy many of the world's most powerful
families. As the twins quickly find out, people will not
only kill to make money, but will kill to keep it.
What begins as a simple scientific experiment in the stock
market quickly descends into a nightmarish intrigue of
murder, deception, and mystery. When one Shepard brother is
killed, the surviving twin and his wife find themselves in a
desperate gambit to learn the truth about the box's legacy.
Using ancient documents found with the box, they unearth
clues to trace its history through the ages, from the
catacombs of Paris to the Knights of the Templar in
Scotland. Their investigation takes them from London to
Paris, Venice, and finally, to the Vatican itself, where
they uncover the greatest deception ever perpetuated by man.
