"The terra-cotta army in Xian, China, is one of the most spectacular archaeological finds in the world. It is composed of over 8,000 life-size soldiers buried with the Qin Emperor in 210 BC, in order to serve him in the afterlife. But why would the Lucians monitor these ancient treasures, built long before the first Cahills were even born? Is there something hidden among the soldiers? Or could it be a trap designed to send careless Clue hunters into their own afterlife?"
