Publication Date: March 30, 2010



New York Times bestselling author Raymond Khoury returns with a provocative, hard-hitting thriller ripped from the headlines and set at the intersection of science, religion, politics and history...

It appears out of nowhere in the skies above Antarctica--a blazing sphere of light that transforms into a mysterious symbol for all to see. Then, it vanishes. The world is enraptured by the event. Is the symbol man-made? Is it of extraterrestrial origin? Or is it a sign from God? The entire human race holds its breath, desperate for an answer--but will it be the one they're hoping for?

For reporter Gracie Logan, it's the story of a lifetime. And her search for the truth will lead her from an ancient monastery in the sands of Egypt to a megachurch in Texas and into a mystery that she may not survive.

For ex-con Matt Sherwood, it's a chance to redeem himself--and to find the men responsible for the death of his brother.

And for a few shady players in the corridors of power in Washington D.C., it's a chance to redefine the world--and to manipulate the relationship between religion and politics in America, for better, or for worse...
