When a massive amount of gamma radiation is detected somewhere beneath
the desert of Iran, the world is on edge. Is it a nuclear weapon—or
worse? Alex Hunter and his highly trained incursion team is on a mission
to find out. When they arrive at the ruins of Persepolis, they find an
underground facility but no lab, no weapons, no scientists—not even
radiation. A black hole has taken everything...Meanwhile, Iran is preparing for the return of the prophet. Israel is
threatening nuclear war. And the details about Alex's special U.S.
military venture—code name: Arcadian—have been stolen. Then another
gamma spike is detected...and someone, or something, is draining the
fluids from the bodies of Iranian soldiers in the desert. Now it's up to
Alex to follow the traces of radiation all the way to the ancient caves
of Arak, where he'll come face to face with a creature from his darkest
nightmares. Is it game-over for Alex and his team? Or are greater
forces at work as the world reaches its natural end—and mankind casts
its final judgment?
