“Peter David takes a huge risk in attempting a reimagining of the Peter Pan story and succeeds brilliantly in this deeply touching fantasy about the pain we all encounter on the road to adulthood.”
— Katie Glasgow, Mitchell Books, Fort Wayne, IN

Description


What if you could bio-engineer the next great world prophet: scientifically produce the next Buddha, the next Mohammed, or even the next Jesus? Would it mark the Second Coming or initiate a chain reaction with disastrous consequences?

A master at combining historical and religious intrigue with edge-of-your-seat adventure, New York Times bestselling author James Rollins brings back SIGMA Force to battle a group of rogue scientists who've unleashed a bio-engineering project that could bring about the extinction of mankind.

From ancient Greek temples to glittering mausoleums, from the slums of India to the radioactive ruins of Russia, two of SIGMA's finest must race against time to solve a mystery that dates back to the first famous oracle of history—the Greek Oracle of Delphi.
