By Christopher Ride
An action-packed time-travel thriller from the author of the bestselling The Schumann Frequency.
In 1860 a young man appears inside the walls of the Forbidden City of Peking. He has the most striking sapphire-blue eyes, and - more importantly - he appears to know every aspect of the future.
Randall Chen is a time-traveller who, with the help of his fellow Overseer Wilson Dowling, has been sent back on a mission to protect the greatest treasure in Asia.
But even with Randall’s exceptional foresight he will underestimate Empress Ci Xi, a calculating Manchurian beauty with an insatiable lust for power.
Using her considerable intellect and charm to draw in the mysterious blue-eye, she will turn his powers to her advantage.
And the consequences will echo throughout the ages…
