Can the past save the future? asks the latest SIGMA Force thriller from the king of the genre.

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 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...

The MO is the same as the other three, but the words 'serial killer' are not welcome in Northumbria force.And the manner in which she was killed is too close to home for Frankie...'Brand new series, same top-notch writing.'
