For centuries, emperors, historians, and even the Vatican have tried to locate Ivan the Terrible's lost collection of magnificent works, the real-life Library of Gold. Now one of the volumes, The Book of Spies , has surfaced, as have its clandestine owners--a cabal of the globe's most powerful, dangerous men.

When the CIA discovers a connection between the legendary library and a bank account linked to terrorists, they bring in rare-books curator Eva Blake. Soon an attempt is made on Eva's life--and she is on the run. Determined not only to survive but to uncover the truth, Eva turns to the only person she can trust: Judd Ryder, a former intelligence officer with a troubled past and an agenda of his own.

Racing from London to Rome, Istanbul to Athens, it's up to Judd and Eva to track down the gold-covered, bejeweled books in the fabulous library--and find a way to stay ahead of the men who will stop at nothing to protect their interests...and are dead-set on keeping their secrets hidden.
