“As Shaun Strickland speeds through the cold Carolina night, his car slams hard into something surging from the bushes. The something turns out to be a someone, old and tattered, and carrying an ancient package whose mystery is irresistible. Breaking the seal, Shaun discovers a bundle of documents which seem impossibly old, written in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic. But there is something else amongst the pages; a book, sealed airtight for millennia, but written in modern English, and predicting the exact moment it will be found. Relentlessly pursued, Shaun must immerse himself in an ancient world to uncover the secret which is his only hope of survival.
