A pacy international thriller with a historical twist, from the New York Times bestselling author.
For ex-field agent Cotton Malone the stakes have never been higher: a deadly virus that could wipe out civilisation as we know it - and a cure that lies buried in the past.
A secret international coalition has created a lethal biological weapon. Whoever develops the cure will control the future of global warfare. Yet that cure could already exist, buried centuries before with Alexander the Great.
When Malone hears about it, he joins the hunt for Alexander's long-lost tomb. His quest soon becomes a harrowing fight for truth that has unimaginable repercussions...
