By J.S. Colley
Average 4.1 STARS
What if the creationists and evolutionists are both wrong?
The body of an archaeologist is sent home in an urn. At the same time, a video he recorded ten years earlier goes viral on the Internet. The video shows him wearing an ancient crown-like object, and acting so odd, the public thinks the once-famous archaeologist had a mental breakdown during his last expedition.
The artifact, which is soon dubbed the "Halo," becomes the subject of a worldwide search by those who desire to understand and protect it, and by those who would abuse it. While each harbor their own reasons, the archaeologist's son, Nick; his old partner, Henry; Jane Carter of the SETI Institute; and NSA Special Agent Veronica "Ronnie" Vagnetti, all become embroiled in a battle to learn the truth about both the video and the Halo.
What the small group finally uncovers is astonishing. The shocking revelations contained within the Halo explain the once unexplainable, and answers questions that Man never even thought to ask. But not all the ancient secrets of Man's past are hidden within the object. Others secrets are revealed to only one of them.
Should the fiercely guarded secrets passed down through the ages and today known only to a few elite organizations and the Vatican -- secrets that undermine the theories of both creationism and evolution, and that would shake the foundations of Christianity -- be revealed? Is the World ready to learn the truth? And will those individuals--whose lives have become intertwined with the fate of the Halo--find what they've been searching for?
“It wasn’t difficult for Nick to sneak out of the house. After the agents left, his mother had been so upset she went into the bedroom and closed the door. Emily was in her room, either texting or on Facebook or Twitter. By now, she would be totally oblivious to everything else around her. It was only once he was outside the house that Nick might encounter a problem.
His bedroom window looked out over Third Avenue and was directly across from the cemetery. A dark sedan had been parked there ever since Vagnetti & Company had said their goodbyes a few hours ago. He could see the profile of a man’s face in the faint light of the streetlamps.
He looks a little old for a field agent, Nick thought.
Nick suspected Agent Vagnetti had posted the operative to keep a watch on them. He didn't know if the agent was trying to be obvious, or if he was just bad at his job. Whether he would follow Nick or was just there to keep an eye on the house, he wasn't sure. But he wasn't going to take any chances.
Once outside, Nick thought about his options. What difference did it make if the NSA agent followed him? Probably not much, but it was the principle of the thing. As far as he was concerned, the NSA was on a need-to-know basis. And they didn’t need to know he was visiting Henry.
Nick could see down the length of backyards almost all the way to University Drive. Dimly lit and scattered with shrubbery meant to provide privacy, it would be the perfect escape route. He wound his way along the backs of several houses, then cautiously made his way to the street. He peered down the length of Castell Avenue, to where it dead-ended at Third. No agent in sight.
Man, this is way too easy. The thought didn’t give him much comfort…”
