Description

In Antarctica, a scientific expedition drops anchor to witness the cataclysmic breakup of an ice shelf. As investigative reporter Gracie Logan begins her live news feed, a massive, shimmering ball of light suddenly appears in the sky, shapeshifting and enveloping the ship before disappearing as mysteriously as it arrived, the entire event witnessed by a shocked world audience. On a mountaintop in Egypt, a solitary priest contemplates the magnificence of God's creation spread out before him. His presence in this holy place is a mystery even to him; he is certain only of the elusive power of the calling he feels and the compulsive need to record in writing-and to draw-the vision which repeatedly consumes him. And in Boston, reformed car thief Matt Sherwood finds out that his brother's death may not be all it seemed to be-and that it may be related to the stunning controversy that's spinning out of control and threatening to erupt into violence and chaos. The entire world holds its breath as Gracie and Matt chase down the story of a lifetime: Has God finally decided to reveal himself? Or is something more sinister at hand?show more

Review quote

'A pulse-pounding thriller' DAILY TELEGRAPH '...one of the top writers of intelligent thrillers. This is a humdinger that taps into our deepest fears over the state of the planet.' PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH 'A thoughtful book with a powerful message and yet also a thrilling read with compelling, well-developed characters. Highly recommended.' LIBRARY JOURNAL 'Readers who like their thrillers to have a solid intellectual component will enjoy Khoury's books very much. Given the high quality of each of his novels, it seems fair to say that he may be around for a while.' BOOKLIST 'Unrelenting action and a suitably twisted ending...' PUBLISHERS WEEKLYshow more
