Ash's memories have been mysteriously stolen. Surrounded by killers, can he steal an ancient gold spider-before it steals his life?

All of his life, Ash has been haunted by the ancient curse that killed his parents, brought on by a gold spider statue with flashing emerald eyes. If the legends are true, the gold spider has the power to erase the past . . . change the future . . . perhaps even grant eternal life. But touching the spider will steal your memories -- and then your life.

For centuries, men have killed to possess the gold spider. Like the man who murdered Ash's parents. Now, the killer has returned, and Ash is trapped in the grip of the spider's curse.

His only hope is Cleo, his embittered high-school sweetheart, now a highly-trained agent obsessed with tracking down the spider. But Cleo knows something she's not telling Ash -- about a million dollars in dirty cash, and the terrifying secret his parents died to keep.

Can they solve the riddle of the gold spider before its deadly curse claims them next?

BONUS: Also includes the opening chapters of Conspiracy of Angels, "a thrilling adventure" (James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author).
