The Lost Angel

New York Times bestselling author Javier Sierra returns with a heart-pounding thriller about mankind’s most ancient desire—and the modern evil some will unleash to obtain it.

In approximately seventy-two hours, a little-known Middle Eastern terrorist group plans to bring about the end of the world. Convinced that they are the descendants of angels and on the verge of at last returning to heaven, they kidnap scientist Martin Faber, whose research has uncovered an extraordinary secret. Martin’s only hope for survival is the rare psychic gift of his young wife. But Julia Alvarez must find the courage to save her husband while running from religious extremists and clandestine government agencies.

Javier Sierra takes readers on an exhilarating international adventure, from the summit of legendary Mount Ararat to the high desert of New Mexico, from the monuments of Washington, DC, to the medieval city of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. The Lost Angel bears all the hallmarks of the beloved author’s erudite yet fast-paced brand of storytelling, combining historical fact and fiction with dazzling narrative surprises.
