In the French mountain village of Eze, Cassiopeia visits an old friend who owns and operates the fabled Museum of Mysteries, a secretive place of the odd and arcane. When a robbery occurs at the museum, Cassiopeia gives chase to the thief and is plunged into a firestorm.
Through a mix of modern day intrigue and ancient alchemy, Cassiopeia is propelled back and forth through time, the inexplicable journeys leading her into a hotly contested French presidential election. Both candidates harbor secrets they would prefer to keep quiet, but an ancient potion could make that impossible. With intrigue that begins in southern France and ends in a chase across the streets of Paris, this magical, fast-paced, hold-your-breath thriller is all you’ve come to expect from M.J. Rose and Steve Berry.
MJ Rose is a former advertising executive who used her expertise working on major accounts, such as Harlequin Books, to propel her self-published debut novel, Lip Service in to the public eye. She lives in Greenwich, CT.

Una bomba en Roma, un relampagueo de luz... el mundo del reportero gráfico Josh Ryder explotó, y a partir de ese momento nada volvería a ser igual._x005F_x000D_
Conforme Josh va recuperándose, en su mente van apareciendo pensamientos que tienen la emoción, la intensidad y la familiaridad de los recuerdos, pero que le resultan ajenos. Pertenecen a un pasado remoto, y son muy violentos. Ni las pruebas médicas ni los exámenes psicológicos consiguen explicar sus desconcertantes síntomas, pero los recuerdos le transmiten una sensación de apremio de la que no puede desprenderse... le instan a que salve a una mujer llamada Sabina, y a que defienda los tesoros que ella protege._x005F_x000D_
Pero, ¿quién es Sabina?_x005F_x000D_
La necesidad de encontrar respuestas hace que Josh acuda a la Fundación Fénix, un centro de investigación de renombre mundial donde se documentan científicamente casos de experiencias de vidas pasadas. Lo que descubre allí lo conduce a una excavación arqueológica y a la profesora Gabriella Chase, que ha descubierto una antigua tumba... una tumba que contiene un poderoso secreto que amenaza con fusionar el pasado con el presente. Es un lugar donde los muertos entran en contacto con los vivos, y donde los asesinatos del pasado se convierten en crímenes del presente.
