What if you could bioengineer the next great world
prophet: scientifically produce the next Buddha, the next
Muhammad, or the next Jesus? Would it mark the Second
Coming or initiate a chain reaction with disastrous
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
scientists who've unleashed a bioengineering project that
could bring about the extinction of humankind.
Washington, D.C., a homeless man dies in Commander Gray
Pierce's arms, shot by an assassin's bullet. But the death
leaves behind a greater mystery: a bloody coin found
clutched in the dead man's hand, an ancient relic that can
be traced back to the Greek Oracle of Delphi. As ruthless
hunters search for the stolen artifact, Gray Pierce
discovers that the coin is the key to unlocking a plot
that dates back to the Cold War and threatens the very
foundation of humanity.
An international think
tank of scientists known as the Jasons has discovered a
way to bioengineer autistic children who show savant
talentsâ€”mathematical geniuses, statistical masterminds,
brilliant conceptual artistsâ€”into something far greater
and far more frightening, in hopes of creating a
world prophet for the new millennium, one to be
manipulated to create a new era of global peace . . . a
peace on their own terms.
Halfway around the
world, a man wakes up in a hospital bed with no memory of
who he is, knowing only that he's a prisoner in a
subterranean research facility. With the help of three
unusual children, he makes his escape across a mountainous
and radioactive countryside, pursued by savage hunters
bred in the same laboratory. But his goal is not escape,
nor even survival. In order to thwart a plot to wipe out a
quarter of the world's population, he must sacrifice all,
even the children who rescued him.
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 historyâ€”the Greek Oracle of Delphi.
But one question remains: Will the past be
enough to save the future?
