Once an agent for the CIA and tormented by a past he can never reveal,
Ian McGregor smuggles art through international borders. But there is something ominous about Mac’s latest consignment. Unearthed in the Libyan Desert in 1948, the artifact he carries is impossibly old. Like the arrow that pierced Achilles’ heel, it is myth, and to the outside world, does not exist –
Until it is stolen,and a man called Lincoln demands that he retrieve it, warning of a holocaust the world could not imagine. Suspecting terrorism, Mac contacts the CIA, but nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted. Even worse, Lincoln has recruited Mac's adopted daughter, Jessie – and that is unforgivable.
But Jessie is not who she thinks she is and neither, incredibly, is Lincoln, although nothing could have prepared her for the truth about her father, or the tragedy that is about to unfold. The recovery of Egypt’s true legacy has become a deadly race, a race Mac must win, to stop our world reverting to the Stone Age.
