Archaeologist Sheppard Smyth has staked his occupation and the honorable reminiscence of his spouse and companion on proving his greatly panned concept: Cleopatra VII, the final sovereign pharaoh of Egypt, was once no longer a sufferer of suicide as historical past indicates, yet of a well-concealed homicide. while a statue of the doomed Queen is unearthed in a pre-Columbian excavation website in Mexico, Shep rushes to enquire and, expectantly, locate the evidence that has kept away from him for thus lengthy. The statue, notwithstanding, is just the 1st clue suggesting a mysterious connection among Mesopotamia and Mesoamerica, and doubtless - past. abruptly thrust into the heated competition among attractive and enigmatic antiquities thief Victoria Kent and the notorious Russian mafioso Dmitri Kronastia, Shep unearths himself a typical pawn performed through forces operating to determine out a quest older than the pyramids and cloaked within the Mayan Doomsday prophecy of 12.21.12.

Hector couldn’t leave the dig site, he had said, but would send his assistant, Vick, to retrieve Shep from the airport. Shep waited patiently for Vick to arrive at the baggage claim. He glanced about the smoky room filled with aging tourists, a wide spectrum of the local specimens, and the occasional member of the clergy.

But this site specifically where the cache was found? It dates later, around 1100 CE. We’ve found evidence to suggest that there was also a small Mayan settlement on this site around that time.
