About the book
Iraq, 2004. Lawlessness is spreading throughout the country and looters have plundered the museums and historical sites. Mina Osman, a young American archaeologist of Iraqi descent, is fighting to preserve the country's antiquities. When she stumbles upon an ancient cuneiform tablet, it proves to be of unimaginable significance - its cryptic language holds a secret that will play a part in a series of earth-shattering events. Aided by ex-US Army Major Jack Hillcliff, Mina travels across the world to unlock the secrets of the 13th Tablet but at each step she is pursued by deadly enemies who will stop at nothing to obtain the tablet and its power for themselves.
About the author
Alex Mitchell is an archaeologist and researcher. He studied at Strasbourg in France for his B.A. and Masters and at Oxford University for his doctorate. Alex has many passions besides archaeology: traveling the world and its great wonders - you might often find him day-dreaming under a tree whilst chomping on a sharp and crisp apple, but you will never find Alex without a notebook (...even stranded in a Middle-Eastern desert). He is currently an Honorary Associated Researcher at the Institute of Archaeology, Oxford, and a collaborateur scientifique externe at the Faculty of Letters of Fribourg University (Switzerland).
