Sleeping Giants

Themis Files Book 1




If you loved The Passage, World War Z, The Martian or Interstellar: this is a must-read thriller for you.

'This thing . . . it rewrites history. It dares us to question what we know about ourselves. About everything.'

As a young girl, Dr Rose Franklin made a life-changing discovery.
Hidden deep underground, she found an enormous, ornate, metal hand. Tests prove the artefact predates all human civilisation.

Where did it come from?

Dr Franklin leads the top-secret investigation into the mystery of its origin - but finding answers leads her to an awe-inspiring question.

Were we meant to find it?

When it emerges that there may be more pieces buried out there, a fierce race begins to solve this vast, global puzzle.

And what happens when we do . . . ?
