In a novel Jeffery Deaver has called "brilliant," two ancient biblical documents reveal long-buried secrets that could change the world as we know it. In 930 CE, a revered group of scholars pen the first sanctioned Bible, planting the seed from which other major religions will grow. But in 1953, half the manuscript goes missing while being transported from Syria. Around the same time, in the foothills of the Dead Sea, an ancient scroll is discovered -- and promptly stolen. Six decades later, both parchments stand at the heart of a geopolitical battle between foreign governments and radical extremists, threatening the lives of millions. With the American homeland under siege, the president turns to a team of uniquely trained covert operatives including FBI profiler Karen Vail, Special Forces veteran Hector DeSantos, and FBI terrorism expert Aaron Uziel. Their mission: Find the stolen documents and capture -- or kill -- those responsible for unleashing a coordinated and unprecedented attack on US soil. Set in DC, New York, Paris, England, and Israel, The Lost Codex has been hailed by Douglas Preston as "a masterwork of international suspense" and "an outstanding novel."

I could not read this book. The print was smaller than I have ever seen in any book and that is saying a lot since I read at least 3 books a week. Too bad, looks interesting.
