'If you could meet anyone and ask them a question. Who would it be? What would you ask?

When small town high school teacher Shaun Strickland is invited to Cambridge University to deliver a paper on the relationship between Space and Time, he thinks this could be the break he's been waiting for.

But as he and his wife speed through the cold Carolina night, his car slams hard into something surging from the bushes. The something turns out to be a someone, carrying an ancient package whose mystery is irresistible.

Breaking the seal, Shaun and his wife discover a bundle of documents written in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic which seem impossibly old. But there is something else amongst the pages; a book sealed airtight for millennia, written in perfect English.

But others know about the book and Shaun is about to find out they are after it ... and him. Relentlessly pursued, Shaun must immerse himself in an ancient world to uncover the secret that is his only hope of survival.' (Publisher's blurb)
