Jim Harper is not your ordinary detective. He leads a quiet, steady life, teaching at a Christian college and writing for scholarly journals.
But suddenly a strange proposal from an elderly heiress transports him to the Middle East. Mysteries surrounding the Dead Sea Scrolls resurface. Rumor has it that additional scrolls exist. The problem is, no one is certain of their contents.
With the help of the lovely Miriam, Harper sets out in search of the scroll, a search that could prove deadly. Intrigue and espionage surround his investigation. Timing is critical. Are political factions suppressing knowledge of the ancient documents? Will scholars use the scrolls to prove Christianity is a myth? As the search narrows and stakes are raised, Harper realizes the scrolls could be an amazing discovery...or a devastating blow to the Christian faith.
