Upon reading the letter, Nora learns that her father believed he had, in fact, located the lost city. But what happened to her father, and who mailed the letter?
In her quest for answers, Nora mounts a fresh expedition to follow her father's path and find Quivira. In doing so, she hopes not only to solve her own personal mysteries, but many of the mysteries of her profession as well.

'Sit back, crack open the book and get ready for the ride of your life' – DAVID BALDACCI
Agent Pendergast faces his most unexpected challenge yet when bloodless bodies begin to appear in Savannah, GA, in this next installment of the #1 NYT-bestselling series.
A LEGENDARY HEIST.
Fifty years ago, Flight 305 was hijacked en route from Portland to Seattle. The hijacker, D.B. Cooper, collected a ransom of $200,000 and disappeared into the night, never to be seen again.
A BRUTAL CRIME.
In the ghost-haunted southern city of Savannah, Georgia, a worrying spate of bodies has been found completely drained of blood. Locals fear the infamous Savannah Vampire has returned – or prompted a dangerous copycat. Faced with such a gruesome and unusual case, the local police have no choice but to call in the FBI.
A CASE LIKE NO OTHER.
As the mystery rises along with the body count, Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast and his partner, Agent Coldmoon, will have to race to understand how these murders are connected to the only unsolved skyjacking in American history. Together, they uncover not just the answer... but an unearthly evil beyond all imagining.
A corpse, stiff with rigor mortis and bound in heavy ropes, has been dumped on the doorstep of FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast.
The murder has the hallmarks of the perfect crime – no witnesses, no motive, no evidence – save for one enigmatic clue: a piece of turquoise lodged in the stomach of the deceased.
The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of California's desolate Salton Sea where an ingenious killer is determined to make him pay for the long-buried sins of his forefathers.
But Pendergast already knows what is at stake, for the dead man left on his doorstep wasn't just anyone, it was his son.
The latest pulse-pounding thriller from New York Times bestsellers Preston & Child.
Nora Kelly, a young curator at the Santa Fe Institute of Archaeology, is approached by historian Clive Benton with a once-in-a-lifetime proposal: to lead a team in search of the so-called 'Lost Camp' of the tragic Donner Party. This was a group of pioneers who earned a terrible place in American history when they became snow-bound in the California mountains in 1847, their fate unknown until the first skeletonized survivors stumbled out of the wilderness, raving about starvation, murder-and cannibalism.
Benton tells Kelly he has stumbled upon an amazing find: the long-sought diary of one of the victims, which has an enigmatic description of the Lost Camp. Nora agrees to lead an expedition to locate and excavate it – to reveal its long-buried secrets.
Once in the mountains, however, they learn that discovering the camp is only the first step in a mounting journey of fear. For as they uncover old bones, they expose the real truth of what happened, one that is far more shocking and bizarre than mere cannibalism. And when those ancient horrors lead to present-day violence on a grand scale, rookie FBI agent Corrie Swanson is assigned the case... only to find that her first investigation might very well be her last.
A TRAGIC DISAPPEARANCE.
After a harrowing, otherworldly confrontation on the shores of Exmouth, Massachussetts, Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast is missing, presumed dead.
A SHOCKING RETURN
Sick with grief, Pendergast's ward, Constance, retreats to her chambers beneath the family mansion at 891 Riverside Drive – only to be taken captive by a shadowy figure from the past.
AN INTERNATIONAL MANHUNT
Proctor, Pendergast's longtime bodyguard, springs to action, pursuing Constance's kidnapper through cities, across oceans, and into wastelands unknown.
BUT IN THIS WORLD, NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS
And by the time Proctor discovers the truth, a terrifying mechanism has stirred – and it may already be too late...
