Jacob Ambli, a Catholic priest, was sent as a spy on a Spanish military mission to find seven caches left for the Church. He kept a diary showing the locations, but was murdered trying to get back to Rome, and the journal was lost. Now, a century and a half later, the diary has come to light, and the Spanish government, Cuban intelligence agency, and the Catholic Church are racing to be the first to claim it.

Kirk McGarvey's getting a little long in the tooth, but the novels continue to be amongst the better suspense ones.

"Approached by a shadowy organization that would claim a conquistador treasure, Kirk McGarvey embarks on a dangerous competition from Washington to Seville, where he confronts one of the most ruthless assassins of his career. By the best-selling author of Allah's Scorpion."
