Nazione germanica, Anno Domini 1631. Magdeburg, città del destino e della dannazione, è nuovamente sull’orlo dell’abisso. A disperata difesa, le forze luterane sostenute dal Re di Svezia, ma ancora prive dell’appoggio militare dei principi germanici contrari all’assolutismo asburgico. In feroce attacco, l’esercito dell’Impero cattolico, migliaia di uomini allo stremo a causa di stenti, pestilenze, diserzioni. Un esercito ridotto a una macabra torma barbarica. Da ambo le parti, dominano niente altro che desiderio di morte e voglia di strage.

Elisabetta Celestino, a brilliant young archaeologist at work in Rome’s ancient catacombs, has discovered a unique pattern of astrological symbols on an underground wall. She feels sure that evidence of a previously unknown pre-Christian sect lies in an adjacent chamber, and is devastated when the Vatican refuses to support her excavation effort. Ten years later, a cave-in damages the vault, revealing a chamber full of human skeletons that share a disturbing anatomical feature. Elisabetta has joined an Augustinian order following the tragic end of her academic career, but unexpectedly finds herself in a race to solve the secret of the catacomb and prevent an apocalyptic event that threatens the future of humankind. Moving between present-day Europe, 1st-century Rome and Elizabethan England, The Devil Will Come is an exhilarating tale of a battle between the forces of good and evil that has been fought in the shadows through the centuries and across continents—and that both sides are willing to kill to keep secret.

The enemy from within . . . Iranian-born British Commando Major Ray Kerman was a rising star in the SAS -- until he abruptly switched loyalties while on a mission in the Middle East. Fanatically determined to employ his brilliant talents and training in the destruction of those he once swore to protect, he is now General Ravi Rashood, leader of the world's most vicious terrorist organization -- and he has found his ultimate weapon: Barracuda 945.

Yet Admiral Arnold Morgan, the President's National Security Adviser, must somehow marshal America's forces and hunt down this 8,000-ton nightmare of modern warfare before it unleashes its fire and death . . . or the first target to fall will be California.
