Part Two Of Two Parts

The secrets of a once brilliant civilization--buried for nearly 200 years in South Africa--seem about to yield to the probings of modern man.

But in this tale of high adventure, the riddles of an ancient culture conceal a menacing drama of love, hate, violence and death--all lying in wait to ambush an unsuspecting team of archaeologists. It is their fate to stumble across the find of a lifetime and to die by it as well.

"In the breathtaking backward sweep through time, the reader is transported to the last days of a lost and magnificent city and finds there a secret that finally gives up its terrible meaning." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
