In 1791, two men began the planning layout of the original plans for the nation's capitol city. One is shunned and resigns in disgrace, and the other is all but forgotten. Years later, an original copy of the plans long thought to have been destroyed is found, with hastily marked notations by Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.
During the second World War, American military scientists discover some fascinating properties of the hydrogen atom and its link to an ancient mystical number. The exact findings are never published, but a national laboratory is built in 1943 to further their research in covert silence. America is told it is a defense project, code-named The Manhattan Project.
An ego-maniacal entrepreneur and his company, Vilocorp, will stop at nothing to build the perfect human specimen. His firm's research has been getting closer every day, but they seem to have uncovered a horrific, ancient secret that has been locked away for thousands of years.
Now, it's up to two men to understand the mystery surrounding the events and ancient symbolism before Vilocorp unleashes a hellish fury upon the earth; one that hasn't been seen for ages...

Yes...not my favorite combination of author/reader, but they seem to be on the same page when it comes to editing and charcters.
Most...the historical settings and the research into the characters was impressive.
Least...there was some leaps of editorial faith that were somewhat...odd.
Indeed it did, and quite nicely I might add.
Look into more books by this author and reader combination.
A quick, interesting thriller. Nothing amazing, but well worth the credit.
"It an ok read"
To be honest there's a lot of dribble, lost me a few times and got bored, however the story and characters are enjoyable.
