"It's a perfect circle, Chris. The god receives his audience, the grid receives the power--and we light up Chicago."After the perilous retrieval of a long-dormant god from Iraq, Chris Copeland--professional god hunter and company troubleshooter--is about ready to quit his job. But his employers at the Registry have other plans...plans to build a power facility on the shores of Lake Michigan. Adam Shailer, a rising star at the Registry, thinks he can cage the god, drain its energy, and power the city.It's Chris's job to make sure nothing goes wrong. And at first, everything seems fine. Great, even. But when ecstatic devotees start leaving human sacrifices on the beach near the god-house, it quickly becomes clear that the god is not as contained as the Registry would have everyone believe. The devil's in the wires, and there's no turning back now.
Registry field op Chris Copeland arrives in Hungary on a routine mission: find a sacred spot, lay down a wire grid, and capture a full flask of a god's energy. But when his arrogant new partner, Adam Shailer, sabotages the wires, things go very, very wrong. The god manifests as a mirror image of Chris himself. Chris quickly destroys the god and, for the good of the company and his own career, buries the evidence.Six years later, Shailer is a rising star among the energy industry's corporate elite, while Chris has taken a break from operations. But when a mysterious serial killer begins stalking Budapest--a psychopath who bears an eerie resemblance to Chris--the operative is forced back into the field.With the help of Anna Ganz, a brusque, chain-smoking Hungarian detective, Chris tracks the monster across the globe. Only the real danger isn't a killer on the outside ... it's Chris's treacherous colleagues at the Registry, who refuse to acknowledge the terrifying forces they've unleashed in the name of profit--forces whose origins lead back to the dawn of man ... and beyond.
