21.12.12 The date is set. Time is running out.
Hidden for four centuries, a crystal skull of exquisite beauty has just been found by Stella Cody, who also inherits its legacy of dark secrets, intrigue and murder.
Facing an increasingly implacable enemy, Stella and her lover, Kit, struggle to crack the code that hides the skull’s intended resting place.
Their search takes them from the intellectual rigour of Cambridge University to the untamed wildness of England’s prehistoric stone circles.
But time is against them, and they have only days – hours – left to uncover the secret that may yet save the world.About the Author:
