After astro-archeologist Conrad Yeats and Vatican linguist Sister Serena Serghetti survived a disastrous Antarctic expedition in Raising Atlantis, Conrad falls on lean times: his reality TV show, Ancient Riddles, is canceled, and he buries his USAF general father at Arlington National Cemetery. Serena interprets Conrad's father's oddly sculpted tombstone to contain a cryptic message. Intrigued, Conrad investigates and discovers George Washington entrusted a treaty sealed in a celestial globe to the care of one of Conrad's ancestors-but Conrad is not the only one looking for it. And when, according to the Atlantis prophecy, the stars' align on July 4, 2008, with Washington, D.C., monuments, his sinister rivals' new world order will begin clicking into place, if they manage to get hold of the globe. Greanias keeps the pace breakneck and the coincidences amazing, sweeping readers right into Conrad's struggle. (Apr.)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
