Sam Hunter, an agent of the shadowy company Strategic International Recovery Services, helps his brother Daniel, chief historian for the Mormon Church, unearth the Golden Plates, a book with pages of gold believed to contain The Book of Mormon. Church authorities are overjoyed, until they discover that the encrypted message on the plates differs from church teachings. Word leaks out of divine revelations that followers of Islam and Christianity find threatening. Intent on deciphering and protecting the plates, Daniel appropriates them. When Sam learns that various factions have dispatched teams to obtain the Golden Plates and eliminate those who know the contents, he takes Daniel underground.
Sam's ex-lover, a rogue Mossad assassin, has her own reason for securing the plates. When Daniel is captured by an unlikely coalition of religious agents, she offers to help Sam rescue his brother. But can he trust her?
The quest to safeguard the plates and uncover their message takes Sam, Daniel, and their pursuers from the deserts of Arabia to the tunnels beneath the Vatican to the mansions of Morocco. If Sam fails, his brother will die, new sacred secrets will be lost, and the world will be unprepared for the arrival of the final prophet.
