Secrets, miracles, prophecies, and the threat of Armageddon intertwine in this riveting sequel to the international bestseller The Sacred Bones . . . When American geneticist Charlotte Hennesey examined what she believed were the bones of Jesus, the Vatican tried to stop word of her discovery from spreading. Now her proof has vanished. But the bones were just the beginning. In her tests, Charlotte discovers that the DNA has the ability to repair damaged genes, to heal the sick, to cure incurable diseases. Dying from cancer, the determined scientist uses herself as a human guinea pig to try and save her own life . . . But someone wants those bones – and Charlotte. Rabbi Aaron Cohen, a descendant of the biblical Aaron and the high priests of the long-destroyed Temple in Jerusalem, foresees a time when Jerusalem’s Temple Mount is cleared of the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque and replaced with the Third Temple. And for Cohen, that time is now. He has only one problem – he cannot touch the Ark because his bloodline isn’t pure. And that's where Charlotte comes in . . . Cohen’s dangerous plan doesn’t go unnoticed, however. When Israeli archaeologist Amit Mizrachi uncovers a mysterious Egyptian hieroglyph in a hidden and previously undiscovered room, he asks noted Egyptologist Julie LeRoux to interpret it for him. As they begin a quest to unravel the mystery, bullets start to fly, and they know they are onto something huge. As Cohen puts his plan into action, the keepers of the mosques on Temple Mount are outraged. Will this be the act that leads to vast armies meeting on the hills of the town named Megiddo causing a global Armageddon?

With the malevolent eye of Vatican security expert Salvatore Conte watching her every move, Charlotte must work against the clock.

The Vatican Cathedral is packed to the rafters as Pope Gregory XVII leads the congregation in mass. A cloaked stranger steps suddenly and fearlessly towards the altar and commands the wheelchair-bound Pope to stand. He does. The miracle, if that's what it is, stops the world in its tracks. Who is this stranger? More inexplicable events follow: blind children see for the first time, cancers are cured, and a popular young starlet killed in a surfing accident inexplicably regains consciousness. There is widespread awe at each new demonstration of healing, but the Vatican retreats from the public eye, closing its doors to the world. What the public doesn't see is that someone is threatening various Church officials-as well as the stranger the world is branding a miracle-worker. Skeptical investigative journalist Alexander Trecchio, seeking a source who could discredit the growing religious mania, instead discovers a gruesome killing. Soon Alexander and police officer Gabriella Fierro are working together to find the killer and get to the bottom of the mysterious events that have sent the world into a frenzy and the Catholic Church into retreat. The question on everyone's lips is, what is the true nature of the mysterious events unfolding in Rome? Amid talk of miracles and even the Second Coming, Alexander and Fierro uncover evidence of powerful earthly forces at play. Can those forces be stopped before more lives are lost-and one of the most ancient institutions in the world is destroyed?
