IT'S THE BIGGEST DISCOVERY IN HISTORY . . . BUT THERE ARE SOME THINGS MAN WAS NEVER MEANT TO KNOW.

When archaeologist Lucy Morgan uncovers a seven-thousand-year-old tomb holding remains alien to our world, she realizes she has stumbled upon something important--something with the potential to rewrite history. But before Lucy can retrieve the remains, she's abducted.

A former war correspondent in Iraq and Afghanistan, Ethan Warner has seen much action in the line of fire. Now back home in Chicago, he's hoping to finally pick up the pieces of his broken life and begin to lead a more normal existence. But when called upon by Lucy's family to help find her, he knows he cannot let them down. Especially since he knows firsthand what it's like to have a loved one go missing.

Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., detectives Nicola Lopez and Lucas Tyrell are called to an abandoned building to check out a possible homicide. What at first glance appears to be the bodies of overdose victims in a crack den is instead something more sinister. How is it possible that these emaciated, naked bodies--rotting in the sweltering heat of August--show signs of hypothermia?

Working independently, Ethan and the detectives each discover that a shadowy corporation may have something to do with Lucy's disappearance and the mysterious bodies. And Ethan soon realizes that it's not just Lucy's life that's at stake but the fate of the world, and he must risk everything to stop those willing to alter the course of history, before it's too late.

In the tradition of books by Michael Crichton and James Rollins, Covenant combines science, suspense, and ingenious speculation to create an action-packed blockbuster not to be missed.

The characters are all so cardboard I had trouble turning the pages.

This is a remarkably well researched book, the author really did his homework on this novel. Interesting with expansive character development, with dual parallel plot lines converging at the end - - very nicely done by this author, and he captures a certain D.C. cop I once knew quite perfectly!

Leave it on the bookshelf. Weak characters. Plotline of obligatory action scenes for B movie.
