With the Chinese on the brink of unraveling a theory missing since Einstein's death -- the fabled Unified Field Theory, which would put them in possession of a weapon more devastating than any nuclear arsenal -- antiterrorist operative John Taft must act swiftly or the United States will soon be on the bottom rung of a new world order.
Juan Cabrillo's first adventure with the Oregon-a state of the art spy ship disguised as a nondescript lumber hauler-takes him and his crew into dangerous waters, as they try to put Tibet back in the hands of the Dalai Lama by striking a deal with the Russians and the Chinese.<P> Cabrillo's gambling chip is a golden Buddha containing records of vast oil reserves in the disputed land.

Hace más de mil años, un vikingo realizó un hallazgo de cuya trascendencia era incapaz de hacerse una idea: un meteorito con una capacidad radioactiva tan poderosa que podría causar una auténtica hecatombe mundial. La piedra permaneció oculta en un santuario de Groenlandia hasta nuestros días, a salvo de ambiciones que pudieran desencadenar su colosal poder destructor. Un arqueólogo la descubrió e informó de su existencia a su patrocinador, un multimillonario cuyo corazón albergaba unas inextinguibles ansias de venganza. Y él no era el único que veía en el meteorito un instrumento para sus turbios deseos: también una organización terrorista aspiraba a poseerlo. Ni la CIA ni el servicio secreto británico serán capaces de dar con quienes han robado la piedra. No les queda más remedio que confiar en que Juan Cabrillo y su equipo de élite puedan detener la que podría ser la mayor catástrofe de la historia de la humanidad.

Over a hundred years ago, Nikola Tesla created a device for transferring electricity without wires. It was supposed to be his greatest triumph. Instead, his invention spawned a nightmare so terrifying that it was hidden from the world...until now. Unusual surges of electricity are being tracked emanating from the former Yugoslavia. Special Agent John Taft of the National Intelligence Agency is dispatched to investigate the phenomenon, and uncovers a conspiracy of terror, led by a fanatical Serbian nationalist and powered by a machine capable of targeting any location on the globe-and causing apocalyptic earthquakes to strike on command. Now, as the terrorists fell cities at will with their earth-shattering weapon, Taft must fight a battle on dangerous ground, against an unstable foe whose greatest desire is to control the world--or destroy it.
