About the Book

Sitting with her legs all wrapped under her, dressed in diver casual, her long blond hair pinned up on the back of her neck, she was every bit a diver. The reader first meets this newest member of a group working in the harbor at Caesarea Maritima. “My friends all call me by my nickname,” she introduced herself. “I consider you friends, so you should too. I’m C.” Dr. Avnir Raban of Haifa University, in pursuing his life’s ambition of proving the existence of an archaeological site known as Strato’s Tower, has convened a team of some of the world’s finest marine archaeologists exploring the harbor. C has joined her new dive partner in the quest. C, however, has an unusual interest, not shared by Raban or her dive partner—an interest in the Aleppo Codex. The Jewish community of Aleppo, Syria, has maintained the Aleppo Codex, the earliest copy of the Hebrew Bible known to exist, intact for the past five hundred years. Now, the codex, having been recently smuggled into Israel, is missing two hundred pages. Israel wants the pages back.
