A deadly conspiracy! An ancient prophecy! A race to prevent Armageddon!
A thrilling, high-octane race to save civilisation that will engross
fans of Dan Brown and Sam Bourne. When ex-SAS operative Ben Hope decided
to give up rescuing kidnap victims in favour of the Theology studies he
abandoned years before, he should have known that fate would decide
differently. Searching for missing biblical archaeologist ZoA"
Bradbury, Ben finds himself embroiled in his riskiest mission yet. What
is the ancient secret that ZoA" uncovered? And just who is willing
to do anything to protect it? The investigation leads Ben from Greece to
the American Deep South and the holy city of Jerusalem, and he soon
discovers that it's not just his and ZoA"'s lives on the line, but
those of millions, threatened by a fundamentalist plot to gain ultimate
power. The stakes are terrifyingly high as Ben races to prevent a
disaster that could kick-start apocalyptic events as foretold by the
Book of Revelation...
