product description

Just in time for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, True Raiders is The Da Vinci Code meets Lost City of Z and is the true story of one adventurer's incredible 1909 quest for the legendary Ark of the Covenant.

From Edgar Award-nominated author Brad Ricca, this book tells the true story of Monty Parker, a British rogue nobleman who, after being dared to do so by Ava Astor, the so-called "most beautiful woman in the world," headed a secret 1909 expedition to find the fabled Ark of the Covenant. Like a real-life version of 
Raiders of the Lost Ark, this incredible story of adventure and mystery has almost been completely forgotten today.

In 1908, Monty is approached by a strange Finnish scholar named Valter Juvelius who claims to have discovered a secret code in the Bible that reveals the location of the Ark. Monty assembles a ragtag group of blueblood adventurers, a renowned psychic, and a Franciscan priest, to engage in a secret excavation just outside the city walls of Jerusalem. They encounter traps, spies, mysteries, secret societies, and dark forces more ancient than the Old Testament itself. In a sprawling adventure that reaches from King Tut's tomb to the Titanic and even to the cold streets of Whitechapel, 
True Raiders tells the true story behind one of the world's most beloved movies -- and how it's all somehow connected.

Using recently uncovered records from the original expedition and several newly translated sources, 
True Raiders is the first retelling of this group's adventures- in the space between fact and faith, science and adventure.
