Eight Days to Live : It all begins with a painting called Guilt. Eve Duncan's daughter, Jane, has no idea why she painted the portrait of the chilling face that now hangs in a Paris gallery. But those who belong to a powerful cult - one that dates back to the time of Christ - know both the face and the significance behind it . . . They believe that Jane must die - when the moment is right, and not an instant before she leads them to an ancient treasure whose value and power are beyond price. But for now, they target those close to Jane, killing without mercy or conscience. From Paris to the Scottish isles to the Holy Land, Jane finds herself in a desperate race against time to unravel the mystery surrounding her painting . . . and save her own life. Even with Eve's help, can she possibly succeed before her time is up?
