Steve Berry’s first ever eBook original finds an adventurer in a strange and forbidding land, in search of a long lost treasure, and very much in harm’s way.
As a favor to enigmatic billionaire Henrik Thorvaldsen, Cassiopeia Vitt treks into Bulgaria’s Rila mountains in search of a buried stash of exceedingly rare artifacts from a bygone civilization: the ancient tomb of a Thracian king. But when her presence is discovered by a shadowy group of Russians secretly mining the area, she needs a way out. Who to trust becomes the question, and her life depends on choosing the right option.
This story (along with The Devil’s Gold and The Admiral’s Mark) is available for download in Three Tales From the World of Cotton Malone. A printed copy of the story appears inside the mass market edition of The Emperor’s Tomb.
