Dopo 1600 anni dal rogo che distrusse nel 391 d.C. la grande biblioteca di Alessandria, Dirk Pitt scopre non solo che gran parte della biblioteca si è salvata e che la chiave per ritrovarla giace, sepolta dai ghiacci, in Groenlandia, ma che un'organizzazione internazionale trama per impadronirsene al fine di sconvolgere gli equilibri mondiali, provocare il crollo economico degli Stati Uniti, annientare Israele e ricattare il mondo intero. Un solo uomo è in grado di fermare quella folle impresa, Dirk Pitt.
