The thrilling new novel in the #1 New York TimesÂ–bestselling series. In Israel, a man clutching a backpack searches desperately for a boat. In Minnesota, Virgil Flowers gets a message from Lucas Davenport: Youâ€™re about to get a visitor. Itâ€™s an Israeli cop, and sheâ€™s tailing a man whoâ€™s smuggled out an extraordinary relicÂ—a copper scroll revealing startling details about the man known as King Solomon. Wait a minute, laughs Virgil. Is this one of those Da Vinci Code deals? The secret scroll, the blockbuster revelation, the teams of murderous bad guys? Should I be boning up on my Bible verses? He looks at the cop. Sheâ€™s not laughing. As it turns out, there are very bad men chasing the relic, and they donâ€™t care whoâ€™s in the way or what they have to do to get it. Maybe Virgil should start praying.
