Publisher Description

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.

Interesting, but...

I loved the Indiana Jones meets Professor Langdon characters in this book. I thought it kept my interest threw out it. I only gave it four starts though because, I felt it had a somewhat disappointing ending.... He left it open (yes, I know it's a series of books). Thought it would of had a better ending then it did

I would recommend this book to anyone....

Tears flow

I was taken aback by my reaction to the first ending of this story, then shocked at the true ending. Rollins always surprises and entertains. Pretty much exhausting at times but always worth the read. On to the next!!!

The last oracle

If you've read more than one books from this author, you already know the pace of the story. It is very hard to drop the book as the suspense will keep turning pages after pages. I personally really enjoy this one.
