Last night, Ben Houser's best friend was killed, and today an alphabet soup of government agencies is pursuing him. They think he is in possession of a secret that could change the world balance of power. Ben, a medieval history professor in a small town in the Midwest, knows only that it has something to do with the Voynich Manuscript. Has someone decrypted this puzzling manuscript thought to have been written by Roger Bacon around 1250 AD? Ben, his former girlfriend, and a teacher from the Chicago inner city set out to discover who killed Houser's friend and why. Armed only with a few pornographic pictures they discovered in his email, the trio traces a bizarre zigzag course across the Atlantic Ocean to discover a truth dating back to the time of Adam and Eve. What is this truth? What does this have to do with a crumbling pile of clay tablets that may have originated at the time the Babylonian Captivity and lead to renaissance of the Greek and Asian cultures?
