New Jersey, 1937: A homicidal madman has a safe holding a terrible secret that is thought lost, when fiery fate intervenes. Decades later, that secret's discovery is about to threaten the world once more....

Mining engineer Philip Mercer is in the Central African Republic searching for precious metal while the country is faced with a mounting civil war. As Mercer tries to help local villagers escape from rebel forces, he meets Cali Stowe, a field researcher for the Centers for Disease Control. She is investigating why a particular village suffers from one of the highest rates of cancer in the world -- a fact that intrigues Mercer. Once Mercer is back in the States, his search for answers leads him to a long-lost safe and a cryptic note inside: Dear Albert, I believe I have succeeded. The element you seek does exist in nature.

This launches Mercer on the most spectacular adventure of his career -- one that will leave a city in flames...and reveal the truth behind three thousand years of legend.
