For thousands of years, sacred texts have predicted the end of the world. The prophets have always proved false. Until now.

Father Michele Deauchez, sent by the Vatican to investigate, finds his faith shaken to the core. New York Times reporter Simon Hill smells a Pulitzer in the making. Especially when the portents foretold in the Book of Revelations begin to come true, one by one.
