In Last Light, the stakes could not be higher. Israel discovers proof
of a secret nuclear weapon facility in the southern desert of Iran. As
Israel strikes first the world is thrown into chaos.
While on a fashion photo assignment under the shadow of the Great Pyramid of Khufu, photographer Matt Reese and model Elaine Gardner experience an extraordinary phenomenon that has traveled across the ages, changing the course of history and the lives of everyone it touches. Their discovery, embedded in the digital pixels of his photo, leads them on an eleven day odyssey from San Francisco, to Geneva, to Jerusalem and the inter-sanctum of the Vatican. Thrust into a collision course with a new radical terrorist group bent on using the Mid-East crisis to start World War III, they discover the truth surrounding the phenomenon and deliver it to a world on edge.
Flash backs (in the style of Dan Brown’s historical use of secrets of the Vatican), are interwoven in the story within the escalating Mid-East crisis. Major historical events, that have shaped man’s history for the past two thousand years, collide with a modern world on the brink of Armageddon.
In the non-stop excitement of James Rollins adventures, Last Light was written to bring the reader from the edge of destruction to the power of enlightenment.
