Molly Cochran and Warren Murphy turn their creativity to another long-lasting legend: the lost continent of Atlantis. In a radical departure from common theory, Cochran and Murphy place the lost continent in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle and populate it with gods - or rather the people whom time and myth-making transformed into Zeus, Hades, and the other gods of the Greek pantheon. Trapped in the turmoil and panic of Atlantis's destruction is a modern-day man, Sam Smith. In the 1990s, he finds himself the target of an international network of people bent on destroying anyone who has found a clue to the location of the lost continent and the secrets of the Atlanteans. A heartbeat ahead of an assassination attempt, Sam is mysteriously transported into the past, where his knowledge of the future makes him a pawn in the power struggle between Zeus and Hades. Before long, Sam gains knowledge far more dangerous than that of Atlantis's fate - he finds the true secret of the gods' powers, a secret almost older than time itself. The wheel of time is turning. Atlantis must die. But what of the present? Has Sam Smith learned enough to thwart the cataclysm that awaits at the end of this millennium?
