Overview
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 pens 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 terrorist attack on US soil.

Set in DC, New York, Paris, England, and Israel, The Lost Codexhas been hailed by Douglas Preston as a masterwork of international suspense and an outstanding novel.""

Jacobsons entertaining third OPSIG Team Black novel (after 2012s Hard Target) contains enough edge-of-your-seat action sequences to fill a handful of Mission Impossible movies. When the members of the Operations Support Intelligence Group, an elite black ops unit run out of the Pentagon, break up a suicide bombing cell in Washington, D.C., they stumble across a plethora of international terrorist plotsbut at the center of it all are ancient scrolls whose secrets, if made public, could change the global geopolitical landscape forever. Tasked with securing the artifacts, the groupwhich includes FBI profiler Karen Vail (the star of her own series); Special Forces operative Hector DeSantos; and Aaron Uziel, the head of the FBIs Joint Terrorism Task Force in Washingtonembark on a globe-hopping adventure that takes them to New York, London, Paris, and Tel Aviv. While some thriller fans may find the plot too over-the-top, this is an undeniable page-turner. Agent: Joel Gotler, IPG Literary Agency. (Nov.)
