The Suez Canal,1956. The world teeters on the brink of nuclear war, and the Middle East is a tinderbox.

And archaeologist Benedict Hitchens is back. His natural inclination towards self-sabotage leads him on a high-stakes chase across the Middle East, from Istanbul to Cairo, to the ancient city of Jerusalem, and into the sands of the Sinai and Negev deserts 🏜.

He’s in pursuit of his nemesis – the woman who almost destroyed him. She’s at least as brilliant as he is, and has had to fight to make it in a world dominated by ruthless and unprincipled men.

Now, they’re both searching for the same thing – an ancient treasure that, in the wrong hands, could mean the annihilation of humankind.

This is a story of unlikely alliances set against the backdrop of a world in turmoil.

Released 25 June, preorders via link to Pan Macmillan here if you can’t wait 😊!
