(From the publisher):
Who is Kalki and why is he planning to destroy the world—and everyone in it?
Why is the beautiful Teddy Ottinger flying to the top of the world to meet Kalki and his cultists in Katmandu?
Why are the CIA, the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency, and several thousand devoted disciples in pursuit of Kalki?
And if Kalki is a mystical legend, if he is a reincarnated spirit, if he does hold truths and powers unknown—then why does his ultimate world include only a select few chosen to breed a new human race?
Kalki holds the key!
