Written by a 16th-century monk named Eisenreich, this manuscript was so explosive that the Pope supposedly had Eisenreich killed in order to suppress it. But the work...somehow survived, and it has fallen into the hands of a ruthless group who plan to use it to subject the world to their control..."--Library Journal
