From the Back Cover
The experts are wrong.
Ancient manuscripts unearthed in a Warsaw museum might skew the beliefs on which many of the world's leading religions are founded. The discovery in Poland sparks a quest to find a supposedly mythical, secret Gospel and ancient Koran text believed hidden in Spain centuries ago. Two young scholars follow a path forged by King John of Poland and later by Ponce de Leon to America. The records indicate that Ponce de Leon purportedly secreted the Crown of Thorns and other valuable treasure in the New World.
There are those that wish them dead before they succeed in their quest that could ultimately change two of the world major religions and eliminate the head of the Catholic Church.
