In this gripping mystery adventure, Ava, an MIT graduate student and expert in ancient languages, is awakened in the middle of the night by a phone call from an old friend, Paul, with a baffling request: Could she fly to Yemen immediately? He's found something important and needs her help. Paul's subsequent coded e-mail alludes to what he and his boss, Simon Demaj, have found: the lost jars of Cana, the very jars that Jesus used at the wedding at Cana and a puzzle to be solved. Are the jars authentic and is there a prophecy somehow hidden in them? At the same time a shocking global announcement is made: Pope Benedict XVI announced that he will resign for the good of the church. Is there a connection? Ava and Paul set off on a deadly global adventure to Yemen, Egypt, Malta, and Rome searching for answers. Every step of the way they're chased by Paul's unscrupulous billionaire boss, a drug lord, and corrupt officials.
