A New York Times bestseller.
In a Paris cafe, American surgeon Paul Osborn looks across the room and spots the man who murdered his father 30 years before. In London, a grizzled L.A. homicide cop named McVey joins Scotland Yard to unravel the mystery of a severed head and seven headless corpses. Neither American knows the link between the long-ago killing and the recent murders. But Paul’s obsession to catch his father’s killer will send him careening across Europe at breakneck speed, his life in the balance, his heart in the hands of a beautiful woman who may be his lover—or his downfall. Shadowing his every move is the relentless McVey. And haunting them both is a secret organization larger and more embracing than any the world has ever seen, preparing for an apocalypse to begin. . . .
“A heart-thumping, stay-up-late novel . . . wild, unputdownable and outrageous . . . brilliant!”—Los Angeles Times Book review
