The discovery of an ancient alien artifact is causing extremely destructive weather patterns in the northern hemisphere, and only Alex Cave can save us from another ice age.

A climatologist discovers that a massive sheet of transparent ice in the Arctic Ocean is expanding by thousands of square miles in a matter of minutes, but no one can explain how the water could freeze so quickly. Weather patterns change for the worse and threaten a catastrophe that will affect the entire world.

As various government agencies struggle to find a solution, they all converge on a single man: Alex Cave, a professor of geophysics, whose previous experience with ancient alien artifacts makes him the only man capable of solving this mystery. As a special adviser to the Director of National Security, Alex is given special powers to find out the cause, and preferably prevent a disaster in the making. He is an ex-CIA operative, and more than capable of dealing with those who try to thwart his efforts to find a speedy solution.

Alex leads a small band of volunteers in a desperate attempt to remedy the situation before civilization faces ecological disaster, but Alex is thwarted by those in their number who have their own agenda, and the interference of a group of well-organized modern day pirates further complicates their mission to save humanity from extinction.

Hidden treasure, betrayal, and self-sacrifice play a defining role in this roller coaster tale by this bestselling and award-winning author.

The color of your eyes will determine whether you live or die, and only geologist Alex Cave can save the majority of our population from annihilation.

Alex had discovered four alien artifacts that seemed designed to destroy all life on our planet. He thought they were locked up at a secret facility in Nevada, away from unscrupulous industrialists and scientists, but two of the devices have gone missing, and one of them is in orbit over our planet.

The signal is detected from deep inside the Earth by a powerful artificial intelligence, who claims ownership of our planet for its genetically superior race of humans, which have been in stasis for 180-million-years. It wakes a beautiful woman named Pandora and takes control of her mind and body, and only Alex can see that her blue eyes actually sparkle. She demands that we voluntarily kill everyone with brown eyes because of their genetic tendency for violent behavior, or the A.I. will destroy our entire race to keep us from contaminating her people. Can Alex find a way out of this no-win situation?
