When the CIA discovers a connection between a bank account linked to terrorists and the legendary Library of Gold -- a long-missing archive containing rare, bejeweled books full of ancient secrets -- they turn to rare-book collector Eva Blake for help. Determined to uncover the truth after an attempt is made on her life, Eva turns to the only person she can trust -- Judd Ryder, a former intelligence agent with his own agenda and a troubled past.
