Photojournalist Mike Burke carried his camera into every war zone and hellhole on earth—and came back with the pictures (and battle scars) to prove it. He was flying high until, quite suddenly, he wasn’t. When Burke’s helicopter crashed and burned in Africa, he came away with his life but lost his heart to the beautiful woman who saved him. That’s when he decided it was time to stop dancing with the devil. But a wicked twist of fate puts an end to Burke’s dreams, leaving him adrift in Dublin with bittersweet memories...and no appetite for danger. But neither danger—nor the devil—is done with him yet.

An ocean away, Jack Wilson leaves prison burning for revenge. Like Mike Burke, Jack has had something taken from him. And he, too, dreams of starting life over. Only Jack’s dream is the rest of the world’s nightmare. Driven by his obsession with a Native American visionary, and guided by the secret notebooks of Nikola Tesla, the man who is said to have “invented the twentieth century,” Wilson dreams of the Apocalypse—and plans to make it happen.

As a terrifying worldwide chain reaction is set in motion, one thing stands between Jack Wilson and the time of reckoning he is calling forth: Mike Burke. With nothing left to lose, and little understanding of precisely whom and what he’s facing, Burke risks everything, one last time, in a battle of wits with an enemy who knows no fear...and shows no mercy.

About the Author:

John Case is the bestselling author of The Genesis Code, The First Horseman, The Syndrome, The Eighth Day, and The Murder Artist.

From AudioFile:

A deranged mathematical genius and a relentless photojournalist demonstrate the expertise of Dick Hill in a story that blends the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, the Culpepper Switch, the Information Security Act, Tesla's Tunguska Event of 1908 (the biggest explosion in history), and globe-trotting to exchange drugs-for-guns-for-diamonds. The exhausting scope of this book is mitigated by Hill's performance. His flat tone perfectly conveys psychopathic musings; his deliberate whine lets the listener experience the frustration of government bureaucrats who are unwilling to see the big picture. Hill's presentation of quantum theory, as delivered by a heavily accented Serbian teacher during a multicourse meal fueled by vodka, reveals a plot that seems all too feasible.
