Library Of The Dead

About the Book

An ancient knowledge. A conspiracy of silence. A secret to kill for.

 

On the seventh day of the seventh month, the seventh son of a seventh son is born to ominous prophecy on the Isle of Wight. Centuries later, in 1947, Winston Churchill is called out of retirement to deal with an unprecedented archaeological discovery that threatens to derail postwar reconstruction. Soon afterwards, in Roswell, New Mexico, an alleged UFO sighting heralds the establishment of a secret military complex in Nevada—a base that comes to be known as Area 51.

 

In present-day New York City, Will Piper is reluctantly forced to interrupt his dissolute spiral into retirement when his superiors at the FBI assign him to the high profile Doomsday serial-murder case. The victims have nothing in common, except for one detail—each of them received a postcard foretelling their date of death. But just when Piper finds a credible lead, he’s taken off the case. Continuing the investigation on his own, he must outwit the ruthless team of covert operatives from Area 51 who are protecting the government’s greatest secret.

 

From a medieval monastery to a cutting-edge government laboratory, Library of the Dead spans centuries and continents to deliver a richly detailed, highly researched and sharply written exploration of fate and free will.
