Description: A mysterious letter hidden in an old manuscript… Merciless assassins determined to recover it… An ordinary family fighting to survive… When history professor Ian O’Brien purchases an old collection of letters and books, he unknowingly steps into the world of a shadowy organization. His family is soon caught up in a web of intrigue and deceit spun out of a 16th century Muslim conspiracy that somebody still wants to keep secret. This powerful and ruthless group will stop at nothing to recover the document. Events spin out of control, tragedy strikes and the quest for answers begins.

Luke Montgomery Yes, me too! Hopefully, it will be finished early next year. Meanwhile the novel is being translated into Turkish, so maybe more of your friends can read it in their own language. Ekrem wrote: "Hi Luke. Still waiting for the sequel to "A deceit to die for" ;)"
