In Washington DC, a homeless man dies in the arms of Commander Gray Pierce clutching a bloody coin in his hand - an ancient artefact that could unlock a plot threatening the very foundation of humanity. Meanwhile, a group of international scientists are engineering children with exceptional talents into something far greater and far more frightening - 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. For Commander Pierce and SIGMA Force, it's a race against time to solve a mystery that dates back to the Oracle of Delphi...

He's already been attracting excellent reviews: 'A non-stop thrill-a-minute ride' Tess Gerritsen. 'This novel about an ancient secret society and the race to find priceless antiquities is sure to be compared to Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, but, in every way, it's a much better book. Where Brown's bestseller was predictable despite its compelling premise, this tale is clever and suspenseful' Booklist. 'An adventure in the grand manner. Rollins takes the reader through the horror and intrigue...like no one else. The action never relents' Clive Cussler.
