The Arctic, 1897: Nils Strindberg crashes his hydrogen balloon during the mysterious Andree Expedition to the North Pole.

Sweden, present-day: Cave diver Erik Hall finds a dead body wearing an ancient ankh, buried deep in an abandoned mine. Religious symbol expert Don Titelman seeks out Erik to study the ankh-but finds Erik dead. Don is the prime suspect, and soon he's being chased across Europe to escape a secret society that will do anything to get their hands on the ankh. . . .
In this international bestseller, each of these fascinating strands weaves together to create a mind-blowing cross-genre thriller that includes arctic explorers, a secret railroad network, Norse mythology, Nazis, and ancient symbols-and a shocking secret that's been hidden for centuries.
