The Archimedes device.
Throughout history, the protectors of its secrets have sacrificed their fortunes, their happiness, and even their lives. And when the device comes unexpectedly into the life of Rebecca Sanders, its effect is no less profound.
Rebecca’s journey begins with the unsettling disappearance of her mother, a respected Princeton professor. The only hints to her whereabouts are a series of clues left by an unknown scribe more than 500 years ago.
To track down her mother, Rebecca has no choice but to rely on the help of Mark Whitmore, a professional treasure hunter with obscure motives. Joined by her mother’s quirky assistant, they soon discover why Rebecca’s mother has disappeared: she’s searching for an ancient document penned by Archimedes himself, a blueprint for a mysterious device that could rewrite history.
The search for Archimedes’ blueprint soon takes a dangerous turn. As Rebecca and her unlikely partners work to decipher the ancient clues, they must stay one step ahead of a ruthless antiquities dealer who’ll stop at nothing to acquire the priceless document, and elude a secret society that has spent two thousand years hiding the truth of the Archimedes device.
From ancient Alexandria to medieval Constantinople to the streets of modern-day Manhattan, The Archimedes Device is an epic journey of adventure, intrigue, and discovery.
