Another cutting-edge thriller set at the intersection of science, religion, and history from the bestselling author of The Last TemplarNew York Times bestselling author Raymond Khoury - whose debut novel, The Last Templar, has sold more than a million copies in the United States, and whose second, The Sanctuary, was also a major national bestseller - returns with The Sign.
Like the first two, this new thriller combines gripping contemporary
suspense with a high-concept mystery rooted in history, philosophy,
religion, and science. And like those novels, it is bound for
bestseller lists nationwide. In Antarctica, a scientific
expedition drops anchor for a live news feed. As the CNN journalist
begins her report, a massive, shimmering sphere of light suddenly
appears in the sky, enveloping the ship in luminous white light before
disappearing as mysteriously as it arrived - the entire event witnessed
by an incredulous world audience. Meanwhile in a dusty bar in
Egypt, a dozen men are lazily discussing the state of the world when
the brilliant, glowing symbol on the television stops them cold. One
man breaks out in a sweat, crosses himself repeatedly, and rushes out
of the bar muttering the same phrase over and over again: It can't be.
Across the Internet and around the globe, a stunning controversy
threatens to consume the world: Has God finally decided to reveal
himself? Or is something more sinister at hand?
