Someone is killing good people. Why?

A series of murders as far apart as the backstreets of New York, the crowded slums of India and the pristine beaches of Cape Town can't be connected. Can they?

Rookie New York Times reporter Will Monroe thinks not - until his beautiful wife Beth is kidnapped. The men holding her seem ready to kill without hesitation.

Desperate, Will follows a sinister trail that leads to a mysterious cult - fantatical followers of one of the world's oldest religions - right on his own doorstep. Now he must unravel ancient propheices and riddles buried deep in the Bible to find a secret worth killing for, a secret on which the fate of humanity may depend. But with more victims dying every hour and each clue wrapped in layers of code, time is running out.......

The biggest challenger to Dan Brown's crown.
Daily Mirror

Compulsive reading....successfully blends ancient teachings with the highly charged ways of the 21st century....bears all the hallmarks of a blockbuster
Daily Express

More readable than The Da Vinci Code  - the sense of menace is darker and the characters more believable.
Esquire

Always twisting and turning, Bourne's novel takes readers on a dramatic, full-throttle adventure, which ultimately offers a timely spin on the question, "Can the end ever justify the means? Stephanie Zvirin

The best thriller I've read in years Piers Morgan

Will be compared, inevitably, to The Da Vinci Code. The similarities are difficult to ignore, but it's far better written ! will thrill any conspiracy-theory fans ! a highly enjoyable read
