After the tragic death of his son, all the American wants is to live a quiet life in a sleepy tourist town in northern Italy. But his solace is shattered when British agents locate him to break the news that his friend from college, Oxford Professor Paul Ross, was killed in a car bombing.
The agents believe Dr. Ross was murdered after he discovered the “Text of Akbar”, a mysterious collection of 2,000-year-old Sanskrit fragments, which could hold the key to the entire Christian faith.
To find Dr. Ross’s killer, the agents want the expat to assume the identity of his dead friend at an auction of rare books soon to be held at a faraway palace in India. The last Maharaja of Naipurna is hosting a group of religion scholars from around the world for this chance-of-a- lifetime event.
Out of sympathy for Dr. Ross’s widow, the expat reluctantly agrees to travel to the remote desert city where his three-day assignment spirals into a nightmare of danger and intrigue.
Arriving at the grim and sinister Ganesha’s Palace, the new Dr. Ross is a marked man. He’s in far more danger than he anticipated when he learns his fellow guests at the palace are consumed with being the first to acquire the Text of Akbar . . . and one of them will gladly kill for that chance.
