it was amazing
Read from September 26 to October 05, 2011

Hundreds of mummifies bodies are found deep inside a cave in the rockies. The Native American activist claim the rights to the bodies although the dress was Native the features seemed to be Caucasian. Found with the bodies were plates of gold, with writing that seemed to be ancient Hebrew.
An act gone bad sets off a chain reaction that has global consequences, one that could end the world as we know it.
This was a good story line combining science, fiction and history in a good balance and exciting story line.
Nano technology is the new science yet in fact Damascus blades do in fact contain nano-wires and nano carbon tubes, meaning there was a change in the molecular structure that still has not been duplicated today.
The portrait of the Declaration of Independence does not contain all 56 signers, but does in fact include several that did not sign the document.
Meriwether Lewis did die as described, ruled suicide. The one official inquire ruled it murder.The family tried on several occasions to have the body examined by forensic scientist but has been denied by the state dept.
Recent DNA test on Native American remains finds a strand not linked to Asia as one might expect but to Hiberia, which is present day France.
So perhaps some of the secrets that the story line aims at arent so far fetched as one might imagine.
All in all this was a good read.
