An ancient organization more powerful than the federal government has targeted Washington. They'll stop at nothing to destroy the republic and raise an empire. The adventure begins with a mysterious military burial at Arlington National Cemetery and a shocking legacy that has explosive implications for America's existence. Archaeologist Conrad Yeats discovers in his father's tombstone the key to a centuries-old warning built into the very design of Washington, D.C. Major monuments along the National Mall are astronomically aligned and are about to "lock" with the stars at a date foreseen by the Founding Fathers. Along with Serena Serghetti, a beautiful Vatican linguist with secrets of her own, Yeats explores the hidden world beneath the capital in a deadly race to save it. America has a date with destiny, and the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
A part of the "Inferno Follow-up" Collection
After astro-archeologist Conrad Yeats and Vatican linguist Sister Serena Serghetti survived a disastrous Antarctic expedition in Raising Atlantis, Conrad falls on lean times: his reality TV show, Ancient Riddles, is canceled, and he buries his USAF general father at Arlington National Cemetery. Serena interprets Conrad's father's oddly sculpted tombstone to contain a cryptic message. Intrigued, Conrad investigates and discovers George Washington entrusted a treaty sealed in a celestial globe to the care of one of Conrad's ancestors--but Conrad is not the only one looking for it. And when, according to the Atlantis prophecy, the stars' align on July 4, 2008, with Washington, D.C., monuments, his sinister rivals' new world order will begin clicking into place, if they manage to get hold of the globe. Greanias keeps the pace breakneck and the coincidences amazing, sweeping readers right into Conrad's struggle. (Apr.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information. -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.

Posted July 26, 2008 by Jade , Wyoming USAThis book is excellent. So good that I'll say it again...excellent. While it isn't absoultely neccessary to read the previous book it would be helpful so you know what the characters reference. Four years have passed since the last time we heard about Conrad and we encounter even more eficenct that he isn't the average human as well as even more evidence about the existance of Atlantis. Old plots are uncovered spanning the Revolutionary War and Nazis-not necessarily together. We find that some people live too muchi n the reflected glory of their ancestors and some that we believe might actually don't. This story reminds me of the National Treasure movies as well as the Indiana Jones ones. I will have to say this for Conrad-as special and heroic as the poor guy is there doesn't seem to be a woman around that won't betray him. The Sister is no exception. She has good reasons but doesn't seem to want to tell him what they are. And you'd think she would considering all the bullets (lethal virus', death, explosions, and parties) that they dodged.
