Born a goddess, Cleopatra died a prisoner. But the cobra's deadly kiss was just the beginning...

Bari, Italy, present day. Think tank Special Ops leader Timothy Stryker and his wife Angie, a self-made CEO, haven't exactly been seeing eye-to-eye. They take a much-needed Italian holiday, but it comes to a shocking end when Angie and their four-year-old daughter are kidnapped.

Still raw from the death of their infant son, Stryker is desperate to rescue Angie and reconcile their differences. As he works to locate the captors' lair, he discovers the key to the kidnapper's location may be hidden in Queen Cleopatra's gold journal. But when he learns their plans for his only remaining child, the scab on his heart tears open and blood begins to spill.

Working from inside her brutal captors' high-security compound, Angie realizes the cabal is hiding an ancient secret using modern propaganda techniques. And as Stryker connects a series of deadly dots while searching Egyptian tombs and Greek temples to save his family, hitmen track his every move. Ultimately, the estranged pair must shake the deeply buried pillars of western civilization to save their daughter from an unspeakable fate.

Fascinating, provocative, original, and timely, Cleopatra's Vendetta is a sizzling novel that will keep you turning pages long into the night.
