In The Traveler, John Twelve Hawks introduced listeners to a dangerous world inspired by the modern technology that monitors our lives. As it ends, Gabriel Corrigan hesitates under the weight of responsibility. His brother Michael seizes opportunity–and joins the enemy. THE DARK RIVER opens in New York City with a stunning piece of news. Gabriel’s father, who has been missing for many years, may still be alive and trapped somewhere in Europe. Gabriel and his Harlequin protector, Maya, immediately mobilize to escape New York and find the long-lost Traveler. Simultaneously, Michael orders the Brethren–the ruthless group that has been hunting Gabriel–into a full-scale search. The race moves from the underground tunnels of New York and London, to ruins hidden beneath Rome and Berlin, to a remote region of Africa that is rumored to harbor one of history’s greatest treasures. And as the story moves toward its chilling conclusion, Maya must decide if she will trade everything to rescue Gabriel.
A mesmerizing return to the places and people so richly portrayed in The Traveler, THE DARK RIVER is propelled by edge-of-the-seat suspense and haunted by a vision of a world where both hope and freedom are about to disappear.
