The Atlantis Code, by Charles Brokaw, is a cross between Indiana Jones and the Da Vinci Code. Handsome Professor Thomas Lourds attempts to decipher an ancient language on some artifacts and ends up running for his life from a group of assassins who are tied to a secret society of the Catholic Church. It's non-stop action and a great read. From official release/information:
Product Description: A thrill-seeking Harvard linguistics professor and an ultrasecret branch of the Catholic Church go head-to-head in a race to uncover the secrets of the lost city of Atlantis. The ruins of the technologically-advanced, eerily-enigmatic ancient civilization promise their discoverer fame, fortune, and power… but hold earth-shattering secrets about the origin of man.
While world-famous linguist and archaeologist, Thomas Lourds, is shooting a film that dramatizes his flamboyant life and scientific achievements, satellites spot impossibly ancient ruins along the Spanish coast. Lourds knows exactly what it means: the Lost Continent of Atlantis has been found. The race is on, and Lourds' challengers will do anything to get there first.Whoever controls the Lost Continent will control the world.
