Archeological danger duo Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase, now engaged to be married, dodge bullets in pursuit of another fabled object in their fourth adventure (after 2010's The Secret of Excalibur ). Nina isn't actually certain what she's looking for, but she knows the vastly powerful, resourceful, and mysterious consortium known as the Covenant of Genesis wants to destroy it, which provides incentive enough for her to disregard expense, ethics, and personal safety while pursuing it. She and Eddie escape marauding henchmen seeking to destroy their entire crew and all evidence of an ancient stone tablet they found in Indonesia, only to be attacked back at Nina's New York office. They immediately commence an intercontinental game of hunt and be hunted, cracking heads, wise, and the occasional Indiana Jones–style whip amid plenty of action and gore. (May)
