9781846943461: 2012: The Secret of the Crystal Skull

Archaeologist Laura Shepherd is working late one night when she finds her colleague Ron Smith dead clutching a mysterious crystal skull. With police unable to answer key questions about his death, Laura's boss orders her to investigate the mystery. The skull leads Laura to its eccentric previous owner, an old woman whose shock revelation blows Laura's orderly world apart. When a laser test on the skull etches out the cryptic code 1221201212212012 Laura's scientist husband thinks he has stumbled upon the next generation of computer technology. Wanting to know more, he visits the old woman only to find chilling evidence she was involved in Ron's death and now has designs on Laura. Yet when Laura narrowly avoids a fatal accident she is convinced it was the old lady's words that saved her - but returns only to find the old woman dead. With no other leads to go on, Laura sets out on a dangerous mission - to an ancient Mayan temple surrounded by armed guards - determined to unlock the skull's secret, whatever the cost.

From the Back Cover:

AN ANCIENT PROPHECY, A DEADLY SECRET, AND ONLY ONE WOMAN WHO CAN SAVE THE WORLD.

When archaeologist Dr Laura Shepherd discovers her colleague dead clutching a mysterious crystal skull, she is catapulted into a shadowy world of strange omens, psychic phenomena and cryptic codes.

Her quest for the truth leads her to risk her career, her marriage, and even her life.

Whe she learns of a terrifying prophecy for the year 2012, she sets off on a dangerous mission, to an ancient Mayan temple buried deep in the rainforest, surrounded by armed guards - determined to unlock the skull's secret, whatever the cost.

What the critics said about the authors' last book: 'Excellent...Fascinating' - The Mail on Sunday (UK) 'This book reads like an Indiana Jones adventure tale. Seldom has a recounting of archaeological research resulted in such a fascinating, fun, but ultimately terrifying read.' Janet Brennan for Fate Magazine (USA)

Chris Morton and Ceri Louise Thomas are independent film-makers and environmental campaigners as well as writers. Their last book has sold over 100,000 copies and been translated into 15 languages.
