Tyler Locke’s commute on a Washington state ferry takes a nasty turn when an anonymous caller claims there’s a bomb on board. With the help of reality television star Stacy Benedict, he must solve an ancient Greek puzzle to disarm the bomb. It’s only the beginning: Locke and Stacy are soon racing around the world, barely a step ahead of both a dangerous Mafiosi and the local authorities, trying to uncover the legendary lost treasure of King Midas using cryptic clues from the Antikythera Mechanism, which was designed by Archimedes.
