1858 - An Antarctic whaler stumbles on an aged wreck. 2001 - A team of anthropologists gazes in awe at a wall of strange inscriptions moments before a blast seals them deep with the rock. 2001 A research ship manned by Dirk Pitt is set upon and nearly sunch by an impossibility - a vessel that should have died 56 yrs before. What do they have in common?
When mysterious black obsidian skulls and other artifacts of an exceedingly ancient culture begin to turn up in odd places, Pitt jumps in with both feet. It soon becomes dangerously apparent that a powerful, amoral group of fanatics calling itself the Fourth Empire wants the strange discoveries to remain underground. Pitt teams up with a beautiful red-haired expert in ancient languages to decipher the meaning of the artifacts. They were made 10 millennia ago in a then-temperate Antarctica by a seafaring civilization advanced enough to predict its own destruction by a comet impact. Now the Fourth Empire (whose literal and figurative progenitor comes as no surprise) is predicting a similar disaster in only a matter of months, and preparing to take control of the earth.
