What if you could bio-engineer the next great world prophet:
scientifically produce the next Buddha, the next Muhammad,
or even the next Jesus? Would it mark the Second Coming or
initiate a chain reaction with disastrous consequences?
A master at combining historical and religious intrigue with
edge-of-your-seat adventure, New York Times bestselling
author James Rollins brings back Sigma Force to battle a
group of rogue scien tists who've unleashed a bioengineering
project that could bring about the extinction of humankind.
In Washington D.C., a homeless man dies in Commander Gray
Pierce's arms, shot by an assassin's bullet. But the death

the world's population, he must sacrifice all, even the

From ancient Greek temples to glittering mausoleums, from
the slums of India to the toxic ruins of Russia, two men
must race against time to solve a mystery that dates back to
the first famous oracle of history â€“ the Greek Oracle of
