One week later, attorney Steve Stilwell is invited to London to meet with a billionaire businessman in a popular Indian eatery. He informs Steve he has already wired half-a-million dollars into Steve’s account. All Steve has to do is serve as executor for the man’s estate. Before Steve can learn more,Steve’s new client cries out “I’ve sold my soul.” Moments later he is dead, leaving Steve to figure out why. Steve finds his first clue in a package addressed to his dead client containing an ancient map etched into a clay tablet. Before Steve realizes the value of the treasure he holds, his dead client’s former lover and the FBI descend on him and his wounded warrior law partner, Casey Pantel, to take the tablet from them. Steve and Casey must unmask those seeking to exploit the tablet’s secrets before they, too, fall victim to its power.
