The Planners up the ante by threatening to kill Rick's father, their hostage, if Katy and Rick fail to find the Book. The Planners can't find the Book themselves, for they have erased their own history -which holds the key to locating the Book -in their zeal to cover up the truth about human origins. Katy and Rick's quest draws them from Michigan to the remote deserts of Egypt as they battle an old enemy and join forces with a mysterious woman who knows more than she should about ancient history. As Katy and Rick unearth the tomb of a god, they realize their mission has expanded beyond just saving Rick's father. Now, they must save the human race itself from annihilation.
