Police detective Miles Cannon had already served his time as an Army reservist in Iraq and Afghanistan. His former commander calls him to active duty again to investigate the death of the man who saved both of their lives.

Cannon returns to war-torn Iraq and finds himself in the middle of a dangerous investigation involving a seductive archaeologist and a desert mystery that is thousands of years old. He will need both his investigative skills and his Army special operations training to survive this deadly desert adventure.


In the sequel to the award-winning mystery, The Perdiccas Scroll,” new private investigator and former police detective Miles Cannon is still recovering from wounds he sustained in Iraq.

The widow of a British detective asks for his help after her husband is murdered in an old Spanish fort in Florida.

This dangerous adventure will put Miles’ skills to the test as he deals with a new group of suspects, an attractive federal agent, and the international mystery of an ancient religious relic. To survive, Miles will also need his abilities as a special operations combat veteran.
