A secret concealed for centuries, shrouded in myth, silenced by stone.

A secret that if unleashed threatens to shake the very foundation of Western civilization.

A secret that can remain hidden no longer.

The quest begins in Rome, where a grizzly murder and a plundered tomb serve to ignite perhaps the most controversial conflict in human history. Inspector Domenico Conti is charged with the task of recovering the contents of the tomb, but as he delves deeper into the investigation, he is thrust into the center of a centuries-old struggle between truth and those who would stop at nothing to conceal it. But he is not alone. 

Dr. Dana McCarter, newly appointed director of the Advanced Institute for the Study of Antiquity, finds herself at the heart of the mystery when her considerable expertise in ancient Greek philosophy and her suspect involvement with the black market take her on a journey beginning in her New York University offices and sweeping around the globe—from the dark alleys of Moscow, to the rolling hills of the Italian countryside and the enigmatic relics of an ancient civilization, alive with long-kept secrets. 

As the search for answers leads them through a labyrinth of conspiracy and intrigue, Dana and Domenico must question everything they believe in and decide how much they are willing to sacrifice to know the truth.

Too many twists and turns, and the character of one of the villains (Dana's lover) is just too inconsistent. Dana's success at walking away from two murder scenes and the criminal activity in Russia strikes me a just plain too lucky. The speculation about Aristotle's lost dialogs being atheistic is interesting and the relationship between Christianity and the Dionysian cult is also interesting, but I think I would prefer this in straight scholarly discourse.
