When puppet masters control politicians,
technology leads to turn-key tyranny.
Now, once treasured rights have become privileges:
privacy, faith and life itself.
Based on true but little-known prophecies of saints.
Angela Concepcion is rising to the heights of political power as this generation’s celebrity politician.
But she will not get there on her own. Along the way, the ambitious Latin beauty has enlisted the aid of Dr. Huntington Cyst,
the brilliant founder of XCyst Industries, a global corporate juggernaut with dominant positions in information technologies,
advanced weaponry, biotechnology and media. His manipulative young apprentice, however, is cunning and devious beyond his years.
Evan Thas envisions a world under his control, and his ruthless plan is so sinister prophets have warned against it. Only one man – a mysterious drifter named John Eben Malek – may know how to stop him. However, he has been accused of murder.

“... very cleverly written ...
about the power of sin and its influence in the world....
[The ending] was very much a surprise;
it brings all story lines together and is dramatic ...
[and] hard to put down ...”
“... paints a fascinating picture....
Nowell’s obviously in-depth research ... gives the story
an eerie edge of reality.”
