Princeton, Good Friday, 1999. On the eve of graduation, two students--Tom Sullivan and Paul Harris--are a hairsbreadth from solving the mysteries of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, a Renaissance text that has baffled scholars for centuries. But as the deadline looms, research has stalled--until an ancient diary surfaces. What Tom and Paul discover inside shocks them: proof that the location of a hidden crypt has been ciphered within the pages of the text. But just as they begin to realize the magnitude of their discovery, Princeton's snowy campus is rocked: a longtime student of the book is murdered, shot dead in the hushed halls of the history department. So begins a cycle of deaths and revelations that will force Tom and Paul, with their two roommates, into a fiery drama spun from a book whose power and meaning have long been misunderstood.
