A novel by

 
 
Deep within the volcanic rock of Mt. Kilamanjaro lie the Catacombs, the enormous hidden burial caves of a vanished African society more sophisticated and technologically advanced than ours. A civilization that has left the formula for present-day domination by a world power etched into blood-red diamonds--the rarest gemstones known. When a prestigious archaeological expedition discovers the valuable "bloodstones," the stage is set for a duel between agents of superpowers and powerful Africans that will be fought to the death deep within the caverns of the ancient "Lords of the Storm.

Genre: General Fiction
