Book Summary

As a series of bizarre climate-related events occur across our planet, it seems the world is edging towards a catastrophic tipping point.

Rex Daingerfield is the owner of a giant fracking company that seeks to exploit a rich seam of gas in the environmentally sensitive Greenland ice shelf. But Daingerfield has a nemesis – his daughter. Born to an Egyptian mother, she is inducted as the Oracle of the Temple of Sekhmet. Her role is to protect the earth from the likes of her father.

The Oracle recruits the world’s greatest negotiator, Sam Jardine, to convince her father to change his destructive business model. But a secret society of the rich and powerful stands to profit from the chaos that has gripped the world. Led by an errant priest from the Temple of Sekhmet, he will do anything to stop Jardine.

As the planet edges closer to disaster, Jardine is confronted by politicians, lobbyists, vested interests – even his own radicalised half-brother – all of whom stand to gain from the mayhem about to be unleashed.

About the Author

Financial Thriller author Christopher Hepworth has been a professional negotiator for over thirty years with some of the largest and best known companies in the world. He has won numerous prestigious awards in his chosen profession of procurement. He has spent half a lifetime working for an array of colourful captains of industry both male and female, inspirational and downright terrifying. He often wonders how these desk warriors would cope if they were confronted with real-life global emergencies rather than plotting their narrow-minded corporate agendas. With the magic of fiction, Christopher Hepworth has mixed them together, created a wonderful set of characters, added some timeless villains and dropped them in the middle of some daunting cliff-hanger plots in exotic locations.

Born in the UK in 1961 and raised in Zambia in central Africa like his hero Wilbur Smith, Christopher Hepworth now lives in Sydney, Australia with his wife Anne and four children. Much of the spare time he found for writing has come while watching his children play representative cricket on playing fields around Sydney. It is amazing how many sentences can be written in between the fall of wickets.

The exotic characters in his book reflect his fascination with the charismatic, proud but often maligned warrior nations around the world and whose stories are screaming to be told. In his books, Christopher Hepworth seeks to highlight the plight of those proud people who have suffered the misfortunes of fate and history but whose dignity and aspirations remain intact.

Christopher Hepworth hopes that you will enjoy his new brand of hero fit for the twenty first century!
