Synopsis: Financed by a mysterious American multi-millionaire and manned by an old Jewish archaeologist, a secret expedition delves deep into the Jordanian dessert. With the help of two sketchy maps, the exact location where the Ark of Covenant was buried by the Jews that saved it from the destruction of the Second Temple is pinpointed. One of these maps was amongst the Qumran scrolls, the other was found hidden in the inside a candle kept by a Jewish family for centuries and stolen by a sadist doctor during the Nazi occupation of Austria. The “Mosses Expedition”, which is about to make the greatest archaeological discovery of all times, is infiltrated by the Vatican’s secret services, the Mossad, and by a mole from the Islamic Fundamentalism. A Spanish journalist has the story’s exclusive rights and is part of the expedition.
“The Moses Expedition delivers the best of the literary suspense and international intrigue genres with breakneck thrills and twists, and Gomez-Jurado enriches every page with a sophisticated portrayal of characters and a deep respect for history. This fantastic novel will have your brain working overtime and your bedside lamp on into the night”.
