Lincoln Miller, an ex–Navy SEAL turned NCIS Special Agent, is sent to Aquarius, the world's only sub-oceanic research facility, located off the Florida Keys, to investigate reports of ocean dumping. A week into his stay, strange red flakes descend from the surface. Scores of fish are dead and dying, poisoned by the debris that turns to powder in Miller's fingers and tastes like blood.
Miller heads for the surface, ready to fight whoever is polluting on his watch. But he finds nothing—no ships, polluters, oxygen. Cut off from the rest of the living world, Miller makes his way to Miami where he discovers a lone survivor and the awful truth: the strange phenomenon that robbed the air of its life-giving force was an attack by an enemy reborn from the ashes of World War II. And they're just getting started. Miami, Tel Aviv, and Tokyo have all been destroyed. And if Miller can't put a stop to those responsible in seven days, the rest of the world will be next…

“The popcorn novel of the summer has arrived, and Jeremy Robinson delivers an action fest that rivals the best of James Rollins, Clive Cussler, and Matthew Reilly.” —Associated Press
“Another crisply plotted tale from the fertile imagination of Jeremy Robinson. This one has it all, frozen Nazis, UFO crashes, Antarctica, and some really cool science. Plan to hunker down for an all nighter with this one. I did.” —Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author
