Description
New York Times bestselling author Raymond Khoury returns with a provocative, hard-hitting thriller ripped from the headlines and set at the intersection of science, religion, politics and history... It appears out of nowhere in the skies above Antarctica—a blazing sphere of light that transforms into a mysterious symbol for all to see. Then, it vanishes. The world is enraptured by the event. Is the symbol man-made? Is it of extraterrestrial origin? Or is it a sign from God? The entire human race holds its breath, desperate for an answer—but will it be the one they're hoping for? For reporter Gracie Logan, it's the story of a lifetime. And her search for the truth will lead her from an ancient monastery in the sands of Egypt to a megachurch in Texas and into a mystery that she may not survive. For ex-con Matt Sherwood, it's a chance to redeem himself—and to find the men responsible for the death of his brother. And for a few shady players in the corridors of power in Washington D.C., it's a chance to redefine the world—and to manipulate the relationship between religion and politics in America, for better, or for worse...
