The Vesuvius Isotope, by Kristen Elise, Ph.D.
From the ancient ruins beneath Mount Vesuvius, an ancient document has emerged. It is the only text ever attributed to the inquisitive, ambitious, and cryptic last pharaoh of Egypt...
When her Nobel laureate husband is murdered, biologist Katrina Stone can no longer ignore the secrecy that has increasingly pervaded his recent behavior. Her search for answers leads to a two-thousand-year-old medical mystery and the life of one of history’s most enigmatic women. Following the trail forged by her late husband, Katrina must separate truth from legend as she chases medicine from ancient Italy and Egypt to a clandestine modern-day war. Her quest will reveal a legacy of greed and murder and resurrect an ancient plague, introducing it into the twenty-first century.
