Description: Was there a second diary chronicling Columbus' voyages to the New World, written by his sailing companion, Las Casas? Some scholars at the Library of Congress think so, and pre-Columbian expert Annabel Smith has been commissioned by the library's magazine, Civilization, to write an article about it.

She is not the only person interested in the subject. Wealthy bibliophile David Driscoll has been offered Las Casas' diaries through the rare books underground. Not only are the diaries for sale, a map purportedly pinpointing where a treasure-trove was buried by Columbus is part of the package. Driscoll, a major benefactor of the Library of Congress and a vain man, would love to take credit for procuring these documents for the Library.

As Annabel begins her research in the Hispanic division of the Library of Congress, a researcher there is killed. Simultaneously, a TV investigative journalist chases the Las Casas story using her own resources. As she, and Annabel, narrow in on the missing diaries and the murderer, they move closer to personal danger. Was the murder eight years ago of the library's leading Hispanic scholar connected to the coveted diaries and map? Annabel suspects that it was, and digs deeper into his death, using the vast, barely explored recessess of the huge library itself. In the process, she comes close -- too close -- to facing her own mortality.

A rare manuscript and map add up to murder in one of the great libraries in the world, the Library of Congress.
