(From the publisher):
For two thousand years, a secret brotherhood has been searching for the new Messiah. Now a genetic scientist is about to end their quest.
It is the beginning of a new millennium. At the very moment of Dr. Tom carter's supreme triumph -- a Nobel Prize for his revolutionary genetic discoveries -- his worst nightmares come true. His wife is slain by an assassin's bullet that was meant for him. And Carter's astonishing ability to read a person's genes reveals a terrible future for his nine-year-old daughter: incurable brain cancer.
Carter needs a miracle to save his little girl. And one is waiting for him in a cave in the Middle East... and in the guarded DNA of the greatest healer in the history of the world.
The scientist has made a pact with an ancient, secret order, an alliance that makes Tom Carter the target of a beautiful, determined, and frighteningly efficient killer; a partnership that could mark the beginning of an unthinkable end to everything human.
