Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440243033, Mass Market Paperback)Internationally bestselling author Julia Navarro riveted readers around the world with her provocative novel The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud. Now she goes even further, in this electrifying thriller about a biblical discovery in the Iraqi desert—and a deadly struggle on the eve of war to unearth a truth that’s waited 3,000 years to be told….
In St. Peter’s Basilica, a man sits in a confessional asking forgiveness for a murder he’s about to commit. And a young priest begins a desperate journey to stop him.
It’s the beginning of a ruthless race to find a rumored cache of sacred texts that could be one of the most explosive discoveries of all time. For as Clara Tannenberg and a team of renegade archaeologists journey deep into an Iraq on the brink of war, another far more sinister group is determined to get there first. Sweeping from the time of the biblical patriarchs to the front lines of the Iraqi conflict, from the horrors of Nazi Germany to the back rooms of Washington, D.C., The Bible of Clay is a novel of unrelenting, thought-provoking, and all-too-plausible suspense.

Among rumors of Iraq's imminent invasion, time is running out for Clara and her husband Ahmed who have put together a ragtag team of renegade archaeologists and inexperienced students to excavate the Bible of Clay from deep within the heart of Iraq. These clay tablets predate the Bible by a thousand years and could be one of the most important discoveries of all time, only another far more sinister team is determined to get there first--a team that has roots that reach deeply into the horrors of Nazi Germany.--From publisher's description.
