The shocking sequel to the #1 Sci-Fi Bestseller, The Dig (Book 1 of the Matt Turner Series).
A Cuban logging company discovers a priceless Egyptian opal sealed deep within a felled tree trunk – hidden from the world for at least 1,000 years. A remarkable find, considering Columbus didn’t explore the region until centuries later. Out of place artifacts, or Ooparts such as these rarely meet with satisfying explanations … Unless, of course, you know the right people.
Matthew Turner’s gift is also his curse. At age 9, he discovered his special ability to "read" the imprints people leave on objects. Now 26, the talent has since landed him both wealth and trouble. After a harrowing experience in Kenya, Matt and his girlfriend are enjoying a relaxing Tahitian vacation, but their trip is cut short when an enemy they thought long gone shows up with other plans. Matt is kidnapped away, dragged halfway around the globe, and ordered to find "the rest" of the lost treasure.
In the mountains of Southern Cuba, Matt finds not riches, but even deadlier foes, and the secrets of a long-dead explorer who will forever alter Matt’s life.
