"I just want to be crystal clear about this: if it has
value, we're gonna steal it. Are you with me?"
Effective Engineering Solutions has been inexplicably shut
down and the head of the company, Eli Glinn, has all but
vanished. Fresh off a diagnosis that gives him only months
to live, Gideon Crew is contacted by one of his coworkers at
EES, Manuel Garza, who tells him the two have mere hours to
collect their belongings before the office closes forever.
After years of dedicated service and several high-risk
missions, theirs seems like the most ignoble of
terminations-until Gideon and Garza happen upon an
After centuries of silence, a code-breaking machine at EES
has cracked the long-awaited translation of a centuries-old
stone tablet, the Phaistos Disc, that dates back to an
otherwise completely unknown, ancient civilization. The
mysteries of the message itself hint at incredible
treasures, and perhaps even a world-altering secret. No one
remains at EES to take on this most remarkable mission but
Gideon and Garza. The two agree to solve the mystery of the
disc's message and split the spoils: the perfect parting
gift their employer doesn't know he has given.
What lies at the end of the trail may save Gideon's life-or
bring it to a sudden, shocking close. As Gideon and Garza
soon discover, some missions are more dangerous than others.
But as Gideon has proved again and again, there's no such
thing as too great a risk when you're living on borrowed time.
