A novel by

DA VINCI CODE meets TOMB RAIDER in this multi-award-winning thriller series.
A computer-app designer. An encrypted relic. Can she decipher the dangerous code before extremists trigger a high-tech apocalypse?

Software expert Maddy Marshall isn't sure she's ready for a hazardous role in black ops. But when a mysterious Russian thief escapes over her rain-soaked balcony carrying an ancient star chart in his bloodied hand, the aikido black belt has no choice except to join her VanOps boyfriend and twin brother in the pursuit. If her royal Spanish family legends are true, the rare celestial chart leads to a treasure trove capable of powering the ultimate instrument of global destruction.
Setting off on a mad dash to uncover the secrets of a Mexican archeoastronomy site, she and the VanOps team unearth a clue dating back to biblical times. As they race across the globe through the dangerous souks of Morocco, fallen Turkish temples, and Egypt’s Valley of the Kings, they must fight to stay a bare half-step ahead of sinister assassins.
Before millions die at the hands of an anti-American Russian government, can Maddy crack the secret code?
