The Lost CodexBook - 2015
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 manuscrpt 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 counterterrorism 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.
