A modern 2012 philosophy, and heroic icon for our Times. Leaves no political or religious System, politician, priest, or media unscathed!
Jack Vane, a private investigator, is burnt out from his past. A big city, P. I., and rough ex cop, he's trying to salvage his life and live up to his recent marriage vows to a beautiful Native American woman. He doesn't know that she is a bearer of Blood Lightning, a mystic connection that hurls both of them into the avalanche of a 2012 prophecy, danger, and destiny.
When the beautiful leader of a secret global organization, suddenly calls upon Jack for his help, he is lured from retirement by the promise of fantastic wealth, power, and salvation, should he succeed in a world-shaking Quest.
But with her talk of conspiracy, mysterious shadow governments, and a lost ancient relic of incredible power, this "Dragon Lady" strikes Jack as insane, so he refuses to assist her.
Immediately afterward, Jack finds his pregnant wife murdered. Did the woman Charmant kill her as punishment? Or as a warning for him to be silent? Are the murders a brutal conspiracy to make him find the lost relic? Jack becomes crazed with blood vengeance and seeks the power to destroy not only those invisible forces responsible – -but their entire world.
Jack sets out on a lethal quest to find the murderer and the relic. He doesn't realize his journey will lead him through a monstrous landscape of moral, spiritual, and actual physical transformation – -to a discovery of ancient secrets, conspiratorial truths, shadow governments, and the greatest mysteries ever NOT known.
And a chance to save the world – -or destroy it.
Follow Jack through a labyrinth of mind-searing coincidence, doom-confronting situations, physical and spiritual transformation, and a climactic battle with an ancient Power.
