Book Description: 

Ethan Freeman, ex-Special Forces Ranger, wakes up to discover he is the sole survivor of a fiery commercial airline crash that killed his entire family. His nightmare is only beginning when he becomes the FBI’s prime suspect. Only Ethan knows he’s not a cold-hearted murderer, but he has no idea what happened to him--and why he alone survived. He finds an unlikely ally in Sam Weaver, the NTSB Chief Investigator. An ex-military pilot, Sam senses Ethan is innocent. She tries to remain dispassionate in her investigation of the crash even as she finds herself attracted to the man who may be America=s worst homegrown mass-murderer. Neither Ethan nor Sam realize that shadowy spiritual forces are at work which will alter their lives forever. A monstrous evil, imprisoned since the time of the Pharaohs, has been released by The Nine, a sinister group of powerful men and women who believe they are the direct descendants of the Anunnaki, ancient Sumerian gods. The demon they have unleashed intends to free The Destroyer from The Abyss, the angelic prison referred to in the Book of Revelation, and unleash a worldwide reign of terror and annihilation. Facing impossible odds, time is running out for Ethan and all of humanity as he is drawn into an ever-deeper conspiracy--millennia in the making--and learns that he is the key to stopping The Nine. Will he overcome his deepest fears and find reserves of strength he never knew he had as he confronts pure evil in order to save himself and an unsuspecting world?

The demon looked out through the Professor’s sunken, reddened eyes, marveled at the sight before him. Surprise registered on Alec’s deeply tanned, weather-beaten face. 

The nearly seventy foot high structure the Professor’s memories referred to as the Sphinx had changed dramatically since the demon had last looked upon it. 

The face! 

It was all--wrong

Something else bothered the demon. 

Now, the area surrounding the plateau was nothing but desert. Millennia ago it had been lush and green with vegetation, the climate hot and humid instead of hot and bone dry as it was today. Then, the plateau had been surrounded with a beautiful, shallow lake fed by the Nile. The almost transparent water had shimmered under the golden yellow rays of the blazing, molten pearl that was the sun. Dozens of dark stone djed-pillars—meticulously carved from the iridescent bluish-black diorite taken from the quarry in the Nubian desert and signifying the blue-black coloring of the nocturnal sky--had once ringed the crystal-blue waters of the lake. Collectively, they represented the pathway to the Underworld. They came together at a strategic point known as the Gateway to the Duat, the place where every human soul went after death to be judged by Anubis. They, too, had disappeared, along with the gleaming white temple known to all as the Mansion of the Wetjeset-Neter, the “place of reeds.” 

 The demon, and others like him, called by humans the Shebitu, or the Elders, had been worshiped by humanity in the huge, magnificent temple built with gleaming polished stones quarried at Dilmun, the Place of Beginning, and brought to this location with great effort . . .
