“The writing team that scared the willies out of readers with The Relic returns with a second, equally gripping novel of techno-terror . . . .

“Dynamic duo Preston and Child once again demonstrate their mastery of the genre....The thrillfest runs full force to the very last page.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Read this and you'll be panting for Preston and Child's next yarn.” —Booklist
