As a child, former Justice Department agent Cotton Malone
was told his father died in a submarine disaster in the
North Atlantic, but now he wants the full story and asks
his ex-boss, Stephanie Nelle, to secure the military files.
What he learns stuns him: His fatherâ€™s sub was a secret
nuclear vessel lost on a highly classified mission beneath
the ice shelves of Antarctica.
But Malone isnâ€™t the only one after the truth.
Twin sisters Dorothea Lindauer and Christl Falk are
fighting for the fortune their mother has promised to
whichever of them discovers what really became of their
fatherâ€“who died on the same submarine that Maloneâ€™s father
The sisters know something Malone doesnâ€™t: Inspired by
strange clues discovered in Charlemagneâ€™s tomb, the Nazis
explored Antarctica before the Americans, as long ago as
1938. Now Malone discovers that cryptic journals penned
in â€śthe language of heaven,â€ť inscrutable conundrums posed
by an ancient historian, and the ill-fated voyage of his
father are all tied to a revelation of immense consequence
In an effort to ensure that this explosive information
never rises to the surface, Langford Ramsey, an ambitious
navy admiral, has begun a brutal game of treachery,
blackmail, and assassination. As Malone embarks on a
dangerous quest with the sistersâ€“one that leads them from
an ancient German cathedral to a snowy French citadel to
the unforgiving ice of Antarcticaâ€“he will finally confront
the shocking truth of his fatherâ€™s death and the distinct
possibility of his own.

Re: The Charlemagne Pursuit
In doing our genealogies, my husband and I found out we both had Charlemange as something like a 10 or 12X great grandfather. My husband was from the 2nd wife and me from the 3rd wife. We are lucky our children didn't have 6 fingers and toes!
