Graduate students Jonathan and Michael Rickner, sons of eminent archeologist Sir William Rickner, are no strangers to historical mysteries and archeological adventures. But when Michael is discovered dead in his Washington, D.C. apartment, Jon refuses to believe the official ruling of suicide. Digging deeper into his brother’s work, he discovers evidence that Michael was murdered to keep his dissertation research buried.
Joined by Michael’s fiancée Mara Ellison, Jon travels to New York where he uncovers the threads of a deadly Depression-era conspiracy—one entangling the Hoover Administration, the Rockefellers, and the rise of Nazi Germany—and the elite cadre of assassins that still guard its unspeakable secret.
Finding themselves in the crosshairs of the same men who killed Michael, Jon and Mara must navigate a complex web of historical cover-ups and modern-day subterfuge, outwitting and outrunning their all-powerful pursuers as they race through the monuments and museums of Manhattan in a labyrinthine treasure hunt to discover the last secret of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., before their enemies can bury the truth—and them—forever.
“National Treasure meets The Bourne Identity in this riveting debut. Blending history, suspense, and adventure, Burns takes readers on a nonstop thrill ride through some of the country’s most famous sites—and infamous periods of history—ensuring that you’ll never look at New York City, the 1930s, or the name ‘Rockefeller’ the same again. Not to miss!” —Jeremy Robinson
