The search for the biggest secret on Earth has begun.

  • WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Winter 2021 – Best Thriller
  • "The suspense is monumental, the story never slows down, and it has that magic gift of blurring the lines of the seemingly impossible with something that almost feels like it could be based on absolute truth (AKA, The Da Vinci Code)." ~ Feathered Quill Book Reviews, Amy Lignor, TRUE HIGH-FIVE

    When Jennifer Porter's father dies from a mysterious illness, she inherits a 400-year-old book, titled Aldaraia sive Soyga voco'r, written in an unknown language that her father had been trying to decode before his death. With no idea where to start, Jennifer turns to the esteemed Yale professor, Matthew Bishop for help, and the two form an unlikely friendship as they begin to unlock the book's secrets.

    They soon discover vital components have been omitted, and embark upon a global search for a series of hidden scrolls destined to solve one of the world's greatest mysteries. Yet Jennifer and Bishop are not the only ones interested in the book's secrets, and their quest becomes a dangerous and terrifying race against time.
