A stunning thriller, in the style of Michael Crichton, James Patterson and James Clavell, that will keep you spellbound from start to finish

It's the adventure of a lifetime...

The Dead Sea Scrolls have revealed a stunning secret - an Overseer must cross generations to save the world. Time itself is moving too quickly, with each day becoming shorter than the last. Society is unravelling, people are violently out of control, no one is safe.

Helena Capriarty fears she is losing her mind. She's having an unexplainable psychic connection with a man she has never met - no ordinary man. To prove her sanity, she must find the elusive stranger, chasing him across the globe on a whirlwind adventure to some of the most mysterious and ancient sites on earth: monuments that hold a secret power.

All the while, the forces of opposition lie in wait. They know everything that is about to happen. One wrong move and we are all condemned to disaster.

So begins the quest to rectify the Schumann Frequency.

Zero point is approaching...


A terrific read. What a page turner. it's damned exciting and will take you on an adventure that covers the world and crosses generations to boot. I promise you'll be on the edge of your seat.
