   schema:reviewBody ""Harry Blake appreciates the quiet life. As an antique-map dealer in a small English town, he rarely strays from the straight and narrow. But when a local landowner asks him to value a four-hundred-year-old journal and is then brutally murdered, Harry's peace of mind is shattered." "What does the dusty journal contain that is a matter of life or death? Why is someone prepared to pay Harry a fortune to get hold of it? He turns to marine historian Zola Khan to uncover the mysteries." "The trail of the journal leads them into a world of deadly Elizabethan conspiracies, and the thread of history takes them through a thousand years of religious intrigue back to the blood-soaked Crusades and the secret location of an ancient holy relic." "Can Harry and Zola find the missing piece of a celestial puzzle that is attracting some particularly violent and single-minded adversaries? Their journey takes them to the beautiful Caribbean island of Jamaica, but dark shadows are lengthening and at stake are millions of dollars and a terrorist plot to trigger nothing less than war."--BOOK JACKET." ;
