Synopsis

When journalist Jake Wolsey stumbles upon a declassified file showing Winston Churchill's interest in the ancient Etruscan civilisation his curiosity brings peril in its wake.







He soon attracts the unlikely attention of alluring archaeologist Florence Chung - and that of MI6. As the two are pursued across Europe and Africa in search of the Etruscans' sacred text, danger closes in and more questions than answers arise. Are there powers in the sky modern science has yet to understand? Could the ancients predict the future? And what really explains the rise of Rome, that of Nazi Germany, the ebb and flow of history itself?







In a thrilling race against time and enemies known and unknown, Wolsey fears the very survival of the West may depend on his ability to stay one step ahead of his adversaries.

E.M. Davey is a 39-year-old Special Correspondent at the Associated Press, where he works to hold vast corporations to account for their environmental crimes and their contribution to climate change. Before that he was an investigative reporter at the BBC for a number of years, working on exposes for programmes such as Panorama and Newsnight. His thrillers (Foretold by Thunder, The Napoleon Complex, The Killing Gene) mash up history, 21st century espionage and meticulous research, blurring the lines between reality and fiction. He has taught creative writing with the Wilbur & Niso Smith foundation, while his journalism and writing have taken him to some far-flung countries. He once got charged by an enraged hippopotamus and had to climb a tree to escape.
