This book tells the untold true story of Monty Parker, a rogue British nobleman. After being dared to do so by Ava Astor, the so-called “most beautiful woman in the world,” headed a secret 1909 expedition to find the fabled Ark of the Covenant. Like a real-life version of Raiders of the Lost Ark, this incredible story of adventure and mystery has almost been completely forgotten today.

In 1908, Monty was approached by a strange Finnish scholar named Valter Juvelius, who claims to have discovered a secret code in the Bible that reveals the location of the Ark. Monty assembles a ragtag group of blueblood adventurers, psychics, and a Dominican priest, to engage in a secret excavation just outside the city walls of Jerusalem.
