From the still halls of a Chicago museum, they've stolen a priceless ancient relic, and from its blackened crevices they've liberated a human spirit. His name is Jambres - priest of the once-mighty empire of Egypt - and for more than three millennia, he's waited to walk again on earth.
His quest: to reunite the halves of his soul, sundered for a long-ago crime he didn't commit.
His chosen instrument: Carl Garrett, a white supremacist whose ruthlessness and fanatic determination make him the ideal match for Jambres's gruesome scheme.
At stake: the lives of hundreds of millions. They'll be killed in the most horrifying blood sacrifice history has ever seen - unless one lone and desperate woman, armed with knowledge no mortal is meant to possess, can stop Jambres before the slaughter begins.
