The Lost Tomb by David Gibbins
From the underwater site of what might be the apostle Paul's chipwreck, explorer Jack Howard and his partner Costas Kazantzakis speed to Herculaneum where startling evidence from the night Vesusius erupted seems to rewrite history. What if the emperor Claudius did not die from poison but retired in the shadow of the volcano to be a scholar historian for 25 years? The same Claudius left clues leading to a secret in the Roman remains under London and from there into the heart of darkness. The author's research enables Jack and Costas, clad in the latest cutting edge gear, to leap to the right answers and discover more than one lost tomb. Brush up your Latin and remember to breathe. Atlantis, Crusader Gold
