• Une civilisation perdue.
    La cité engloutie de l'Atlantide fascine les esprits depuis la nuit des temps. Après des années de recherches, la jeune archéologue Nina Wilde pense l'avoir enfin localisée.
    Une quête plein de dangers.
    Quand le richissime Kristian Frost lui propose de financer son expédition, Nina saisit sa chance. Des sommets de l'Himalaya au fond des océans, elle s'embarque dans une folle aventure archéologique aux côtés d'Eddie Chase, un ancien agent des services secrets.
    Un secret mortel.
    Mais le sinistre Giovanni Qobras et sa mystérieuse confrérie ont juré de s'emparer du secret de la cité perdue. Un secret mortel qui menace l'ensemble de l'humanité...

  • Au large de l'Indonésie, l'archéologue Nina Wilde fait une découverte explosive : la preuve de l'existence d'une communauté, plus de cent mille ans avant toute civilisation connue. Mais lorsque son navire est sauvagement pris d'assaut, il devient évident qu'une mystérieuse société secrète est prête à tout pour l'empêcher de révéler cette avancée historique. Avec son compagnon Eddie Chase, ancien garde du corps du SAS britannique, Nina se lance dans une dangereuse quête aux quatre coins du monde, des profondeurs de l'océan aux couloirs des Nations unies, en passant par l'outback australien.
    Est-elle sur le point de dévoiler la plus fabuleuse légende de tous les temps ?

  • Une arme légendaire.

    Gravée d'une énigme menant à une source inépuisable d'énergie, elle rendrait invincible quiconque la porte au combat. Voilà pourquoi Excalibur, l'épée du roi Arthur, a toujours été si convoitée. Mais elle a disparu depuis l'époque des Templiers et certains pensent même qu'elle n'a jamais existé.

    Des tueurs sans pitié.

    L'historien Bernd Rust pense l'avoir retrouvée, mais il a besoin de Nina pour financer ses recherches. D'abord sceptique, la jeune directrice de l'agence internationale du patrimoine refuse de s'engager... jusqu'à ce qu'une bande de mercenaires déterminés s'empare des travaux de l'historien.

    Une course contre la montre.

    Wilde et Chase n'ont plus le choix : ils doivent trouver Excalibur en premier, pour le bien de l'humanité. Des déserts de Syrie aux étendues gelées de l'Arctique, Nina et son fiancé Eddie, ancien agent des services secrets, sont lancés dans une chasse au trésor qui promet bien des dangers...

  • Un héros mythique : Nina Wilde en est convaincue, les textes antiques l'attestent : Hercule, le héros mythologique, possédait son propre tombeau. Si elle le découvre, la nouvelle directrice des opérations de l'agence internationale du patrimoine remplira sa mission : protéger les trésors de l'humanité.

    Un trésor incroyable : Mais Wilde et son petit ami Chase ne sont pas les seuls à enquêter sur cette tombe merveilleuse. Les artefacts qu'elle contient attisent toutes les convoitises. Et, notamment, celle d'une mystérieuse cabale, prête à tout pour s'en emparer.

    Un ennemi mortel : De la Suisse à Shanghai en passant par Londres et le Botswana, le couple est lancé dans une course contre la montre. Ils sont prêts à tout pour éviter que le tombeau d'Hercule ne tombe entre de mauvaises mains...
