Publisher's Summary

Two primitive tribes living half a world apart.
One guarded revelation that was never meant to be seen.
And a calamity about to be unleashed.

In the jungle cities of the Amazon, thousands of tribal descendants suddenly drop dead at the exact same moment for no apparent reason. Strange truths start to emerge that lead respected ecologist, Antonio Medina, into the deepest reaches of the rain forest, to a tribe that has seen virtually zero contact with the outside world.
On the other side of the planet, in the Indian Ocean, anthropologist Stel Foster is on a similar quest. When he learns of unlikely ties to the tribe in Brazil that his long-time professional rival, Antonio Medina, is investigating, he agrees to work together with the ecologist.
Antonio isn't sure he can trust Foster, but together they are forced to solve a perilous puzzle, with the most alarming piece being two halves of a strange artifact safeguarded by both tribes for thousands of years.
Even worse, a powerful secret society will stop at nothing to control the ultimate truth the artifact holds. With options running short and time even shorter, our comprehension of what it means to be human is about to shift forever.

Just didn’t interest me..

The only thing that I was impressed by was the narrator’s ability to diversify the different voices. She did an excellent job with both male and female pitches.
The story itself, however, didn’t really interest me at all. It just wasn’t my kind of story.

Great story. Plenty of twists and turns.

Mysterious deaths.
Two reclusive tribes at opposite ends of the world.
A mysterious artifact.
All this adds up to a great story with plenty of twists and turns.
