The founder of Symbios Innovations, Hans Streisser, has dedicated his life to the relentless pursuit of knowledge. Known by his followers as the Great Elder, he walks a blurred line between genius and madness and has graced his subjects with the most extraordinary discovery in the history of science. But he'll do anything to keep his discovery a secret, including the use of murderous henchmen like Vic Cappetti.
As Jacob's curiosity lures him deeper into a dangerous web, he learns the truth behind the Great Elder's plans and finds himself caught in a life or death struggle that could very well lead to the extinction of mankind.

"A wildly entertaining book ... [that] delivers a deliciously compelling villain ... [and] plot twists until the very end." -bestthrillers.com
