When archaeologist Nina Wilde makes an astounding discovery off a remote stretch of the Indonesian coast, she knows she now has knowledge that will alter human history.

Unfortunately, when her ship is attacked Nina realizes someone doesn't intend to let her share her discovery of a settlement that existed over a hundred thousand years before any previously known civilization.

A clandestine religious group calling itself the Covenant of Genesis does not want this information revealed, and a key artifact Nan has collected from the site is taken.

With her fiancÚ, ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase, Nina is determined to expose the Covenant of Genesis and the secret they will kill to conceal. Their quest will stretch from the ocean depths and the Australian outback to the halls of the United Nations building, but this duo will not stop until their goal is achieved, no matter what the cost.

Mixing archeology with riveting action and suspense, Andy McDermott's novels have taken his readers on adventures around the world. If you enjoy exotic settings and historical background material, you'll find this a fascinating story.
