A priceless book which purports to contain parchments of the Bible’s last testament has been stolen from the vaults of a young wealthy heiress, Kimberly Prester. The thief, Tilly McKinnon, an extremely dangerous woman, is currently serving a life sentence for murder in Holloway Prison. She believes that she has been cursed by the book and is desperate for it to be recovered and returned. Joey meets with Kimberly in her luxurious conservatory and is commissioned by her to interview McKinnon with a view to recovering the work. Joey is strongly attracted to the flirtatious Kimberly but realized that he is ‘punching above his weight’.
Joey’s investigations lead him into a world of danger and seduction where he finds that at least three other ancient organizations that are after the book are anxious to get him out of their way. McKinnon escapes from prison and their fates become intertwined as do their emotions. Clues lead him to a sunken medieval abbey, a thousand strong suicide of a sect near Stonehenge, and a final conflict with the Knights Templar in their Paris tower.
Throughout the adventure Joey calls on the assistance of Olivia DeMontford, a sexy minx who is obsessed by him. His relationship with this girl is, by necessity, steamy
