Money and ego have turned the quest for art into a deadly business in which the superrich battle to possess the rarest and most beautiful objets d'art on Earth. Sammu-ramat: Queen of Babylon is the first warrior queen in history, called by some the Whore of Babylon. Her golden death mask left a legacy of lust and violence to those who fought to possess it. Madison Dupre: curator for the billion-dollar Piedmont collection. She fights for her career, her freedom - and her life - after she acquires the fifty-five-million-dollar golden mask of the long dead Babylonian queen. Coby Lewis: an ex-Navy SEAL, who uses his frogman training to dive for sunken treasure. Madison knows she can't trust him...but she also can't resist him. Abdul ibn Hussein: His father died protecting the golden mask from thieves. Abdul said that the mask was stolen when the Baghdad museum was looted as American troops entered the city. He also claims that Navy SEALs worked with Iraqis to loot the museum.
New York, London, Zurich, and Malaga are the venues as the heat is turned on Madison - and she goes on the run to clear her name and save her life.
