From Israel to Japan, where he becomes expert of the art of fighting, through Tibet where he learns Buddhist meditation techniques, Ary discovers that Japan’s founding religion – Shintoism – is a direct descendant of the Hebrew religion. This startling revelation brings him closer to solving the mystery of the ancient body and the manuscript.
Already pursuing a quest strewn with mystery, danger and initiation, Ary is also searching for Jane, the woman for whom he chose to leave the Essenes, a Jewish mystical sect renowned for its healing powers.
