The one hundred thousand ancient books in the Great Library of the Benedictine monastery were just part of the majestic beauty of Austria's 12th century Melk Abbey. But that beauty was marred when the monks discovered that scores of valuable books had been marked and disfigured by persons unknown.
Wilhelm Gerhard was retained to find the cause. With help from his friend Wolf and 100 monks in black habits, they examined every volume in all 12 rooms of the library and even searched the rock catacombs deep under the 900-year-old abbey where the screaming Will-o'-the-Wisp lived. They discovered that the marks were a code left by Nazi soldiers during the Second World War.
The deciphered code leads to a stainless-steel box hidden in an old stone ventilation shaft. Scratched on a piece of slate inside was a set of coordinates to the location of a fantastic war time secret-one lost for over 70 years in the Sognefjord, Norway's longest and deepest fjord-and one that leads directly to the demented mind of Adolf Hitler himself.
If Nazi Germany had won the war, Hitler's secret would have forever altered the course of human destiny by undoing the handiwork of the Lord himself.
