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. Will the past be enough to save the future?

A book by Jim Tchaikovsky

Jim Czajkowski - aliases James Clemens and James Rollins As James Rollins he publishes his adventure novels and thrillers with elements of fantasy, and under the name James Clemens his fantasy cycles are published. Jim Tchaikovsky was born in 1961 in Chicago, Illinois. He has three brothers and three sisters. Jim`s childhood was spent in the Midwest and rural Canada. He attended the University of Missouri, where he received his doctorate in veterinary medicine in 1985. Then he moved to California and settled in Sacramento, where in 1989 he opened his own veterinary clinic in the Greenhaven area, which he ran for ten years, working 60-70 hours a week. Tchaikovsky began trying to write in 1995. He says that his first stories can cause nothing but horror, but they helped him develop his own style. His first novel, Subterranean, published in 1999 under the pseudonym James Rollins, Jim wrote while still at the clinic. He set himself the task of writing three pages a day and completed the novel in eleven months. With this novel, he bypassed fifty litagents, only the 50th believed in him and agreed to represent his interests. In 1996, the novel was sold to a publisher, but was released only three years later. Not knowing if Subterranean would ever be published, Jim decided to switch to fantasy writing and penned Wit`ch Fire, published in 1998 under the name James Clemens. At first, Tchaikovsky tried to combine writing books and working as a veterinarian, but then decided to become a professional writer, although he still helps in the clinic on occasion. Now he ironically complains that he has less free time than when he worked as a veterinarian. Indeed, it is often necessary to write not even one novel a year, but two. In an interview, he said that he alternates between writing fantasy and thrillers, and at times it reminds him of schizophrenia. Subterranean, under the pseudonym James Rollins, was followed by Excavation (2000), Deep Fathom (2001), Amazonia (2002) and The Ice Hunt (2003). And under the name James Clemens, he continued the fantasy cycle The Damned and the Exiled, begun by Wit`ch Fire (1998). The cycle includes four more novels - "Wit`ch Storm" (1999), "Wit`ch War" (2000), "Wit`ch Gate" (2001) and "Wit`ch Star" (2002). The writer currently lives in Sacramento, California. Keeps two dogs and a parrot at home. He is fond of speleology and diving. Among the sources of his inspiration, Clemens names the authors of the Doc Savage series, the novels by E.R.

Burroughs about Tarzan, The Wizard of Oz by L.F.Baum, The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S.

Lewis, books by Jules Verne and HG Wells, and See also the biography of Howard Carter, explorer of the Egyptian pyramids. In 2004, the novel "Sandstorm" was released, which opened a cycle about the secret organization "Sigma Force", and a year later, like James Clemens, the writer began a new fantasy cycle "Godslayer". © Grumble Reviews James Clemens Official Website: http://www.jamesclemens.com/
