I would have read it between November 2005 and January 2010, the time-frame I was working overseas. I would purchase books at the airport for the long flights. I still have many of them (refuse to throw out a book), but have since moved, married, and had an episode or two of spring cleaning take place.
I remember that in the first part of the book a fella (journalist perhaps) and a woman are in Peru, talking about the Nazca lines and alien potential when their exchange is interrupted by a helicopter looking for him. It goes on a wild global race from there to find this ship, he comes across a former nun-in-training that he was dating, involves the melting of Antarctica to reveal a temple of sorts... and so on. It could just be that I have read too many books and am piecing together my own that doesn't actually exist, I do
have a very active imagination and dream quite vividly.
