A book to make Dan Brown turn green with envy. In the ruins on the outskirts of Gaza a young female archeologist has made a remarkable find: possibly the earliest known image of the Virgin Mary, created during her lifetime. But before she can reveal it to the world it is stolen amidst the chaos of an Israeli air strike. With her former lover, an Oxford professor, she sets out on a quest to discover who has stolen the image and why, encountering mystery, murder, myth and geopolitics and beginning to unearth a conspiracy that dates to the final pagan Roman emperor.
