Took a long time to get into this book, but after that it was quite exciting. I enjoyed the two parallel stories - one set in the present and one in the time of Emperor Constantine. Personally, I enjoyed the historical story more but overall quite an entertaining read. ( )

This was two separate stories connected but separated by nearly 1600 years. I think there was some form of explanation of how the stories were connected in the last chapter. I apparently was not listening well enough, and it was not interesting enough to go back to listen again. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0099547856, Paperback)

An utterly compelling, action-packed new thriller from the author of The Lazarus Vault and The Lost Temple

In a villa on the coast of Montenegro, Abby Cormac witnesses the brutal murder of her lover, diplomat Michael Lascaris. The last thing she remembers is a gun pointed directly at her. She wakes to find herself at the center of a diplomatic nightmare. Everyone wants an answer but no one wants to listen. Even her employers at the Foreign Office believe she's hiding something. She is completely alone. As Abby tries to piece together the last few months of Michael's life in order to get at the truth, she soon realises that he wasn't quite what he seemed. What exactly was his relationship with one of the most ruthless men in the Balkans—a war criminal who has never been brought to justice? And what links the gold necklace he gave her to a fourth century manuscript left in the shadow of Emperor Constantine's palace at Trier, and an inscription on a tomb in Rome? When Abby investigates further, it becomes clear that someone wants to suppress a secret that has been kept hidden for centuries, and they will stop at nothing to do so.
