In Washington, D.C., a homeless man takes an assassin's bullet and dies in Commander Gray Pierce's arms. A bloody coin clutched in the dead man's hand--an ancient relic that can be traced back to the Greek Oracle of Delphi--is the key to a conspiracy that dates back to the Cold War and threatens the very foundation of humanity. For what if it were possible to bioengineer the next great prophet--a new Buddha, Muhammad, or even Jesus? Would this Second Coming be a boon . . . or would it initiate a chain reaction that would result in the extinction of humankind?

Vital seconds are ticking rapidly away as Pierce races across the globe in search of answers, one step ahead of ruthless killers determined to reclaim the priceless artifact. Suddenly the future of all things is balanced on the brink between heaven and hell--and salvation or destruction rests in the hands of remarkable children.

Okay book, good enough to get you to the end but nothing spectacular

May 09, 2011

An interesting idea, and enough to keep you reading, but the author does 2 things that may annoy you enough into not finishing the book: 1. switches scenes from one country to another, typically at some cliffhanger and 2. concentrates heavily on pursuits, chases, and battles while glossing over relevant plot developments. This book starts well, and is interesting but by the end you are just tired and wondering why so many people are chasing so many people and after having seen so much of it, don't really care.
