“Warning: This adventure may get you a sunburn if you start it at the beach, because you won't want to put it down. A hidden Nazi war criminal, the Mossad, the CIA, a Vatican secret service agent, mercenaries of all stripes, and an optimistic Madrid reporter are all in search of the Lost Ark. International intrigue has never been so much fun!”
-- Becky Milner, Vintage Books, Vancouver, WA


Description
A lost treasure, a Nazi war criminal, and an expedition to find a legend . . .

After fifty years in hiding, the Nazi war criminal known as the Butcher of Spiegelgrund has finally been tracked down by Father Anthony Fowler, a CIA operative and a member of the Vatican's secret service. He wants something from the Butcher--a candle covered in filigree gold that was stolen from a Jewish family many years before.

But it isn't the gold Fowler is after. As Fowler holds a flame to the wax, the missing fragment of an ancient map that uncovers the location of the Ten Commandments given to Moses is revealed. Soon Fowler is involved in an expedition to Jordan set up by a reclusive billionaire. But there is a traitor in the group who has ties to terrorist organizations back in the United States, and who is patiently awaiting the moment to strike.

From wartime Vienna to terrorist cells in New York and a lost valley in Jordan, "The Moses Expedition "is a thrilling read about a quest for power and the secrets of an ancient world.
