What if the greatest event in human history never happened?
That's the question facing
the unlikely team of Palestinian-American detective Ben Kamal and his Israeli counterpart Danielle Barnea, as they investigate

pair, Ben and Danielle struggle to put the cultural divisiveness between their respective peoples aside as they embark on
a trail that stretches back more than half a century to another team of archaeologists who were slaughtered in Turkey in identical
The motive lies in an ancient manuscript which may contain
startling proof that Christ didn't die on the cross and the Resurrection, the very foundation of Christianity, never happened. A secret certainly worth protecting and that's exactly what a ruthless Vatican official
has been doing with the help of a secret team of assassins.
Now the ancient manuscript is missing again and the race
is on to find it. For Ben and Danielle to succeed, though, they must first learn

Set amidst a backdrop of the oldest places on earth, A
Walk in the Darkness offers both a complex mystery and a sensitive love story between two people whose refusal to be mired
in the morass of their cultures allows them to save themselves and preserve history.
