Description
A remarkable discovery has been made in the far reaches of Kurdistan. A Western archaeological team has discovered what is the oldest human civilization, more than twice as old as the Pyramids and three times as old as Stonehenge. From this region came the birth of modern religion - Judaism, Christianity and Islam - but so too a horrifying truth about their foundations. Sent to cover the famed Gobekli Tepe dig is war reporter Rob Luttrell, who, having survived a Baghdad suicide bomber, only wishes to return home to his daughter. What at first is intriguing quickly becomes fascinating and, finally, dangerous as the site is sabotaged and a terrible murder is staged.Meanwhile, a Scotland Yard detective is fast on the trail of a series of spectacularly gruesome, possibly mystical murders throughout the British Isles. Detective Forrester must decode a secret of a different sort: Why these elaborate acts of violence? Why to these seemingly innocent victims? And what are the connections with the ancient religions of the Middle East and beyond?
