The Eye of God

By James Rollins

  • Hardback
  • £14.99

A gripping, high-concept Sigma Force adventure from bestselling author James Rollins.

A gripping, high-concept Sigma Force adventure from bestselling author James Rollins.

The crash of a U.S. military research satellite in the remote wilds of Mongolia triggers an explosive search for the valuable cargo it holds: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy, the energy connected to the birth of our universe. But the last blurry image from the falling satellite captures a chilling sight: a frightening look into the future, a view of a smoldering eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin.

At the Vatican, a mysterious package arrives for the head of Pontifical ancient studies, sent by a colleague who had vanished a decade earlier. It contains two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA testing reveals both are from Genghis Khan - the long-dead Mongol king whose undiscovered tomb is rumoured to hold the vast treasures and knowledge of a lost ancient empire.

Commander Gray Pierce, and Sigma - joined by a pair of Vatican historians - race to uncover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, to a mystery bound in the roots of Christianity's origins, and to a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the fate of humanity.

The same choice any couple who love each other would make. They dispose of the body. They clean the house, inch by inch, and pretend this never happened. But try as you might to hide it, murder has a way of making itself known...

Private Investigator Alma is caught up in another impossible murder. One of the world's four richest people may be dead - but nobody is sure which one. Hired to discover the truth behind the increasingly bizarre behaviour of the ultra-rich, Alma must juggle treating her terminally ill lover with a case which may not have a victim.Inspired by the films of Kubrick, this stand-alone novel returns to the near-future of THE REAL-TOWN MURDERS, and puts Alma on a path to a world she can barely understand. Witty, moving and with a mystery deep at its heart, this novel again shows Adam Roberts' mastery of the form.
