SWORD OF GOD
Payne & Jones - Book 3
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER



TWO DISCOVERIES:
Off the coast of South Korea, a young boy discovers a cave that is coated in human blood. Less than a week later, everyone in his village disappears….In Saudi Arabia, a female archaeologist unearths an artifact that threatens the historical foundation of Islam. To some, it is a discovery that must be silenced at all costs.

AN UNTHINKABLE ACT:
In a secret bunker run by U.S. intelligence, the unthinkable has happened. While interrogating one of the world’s most dangerous terrorists, an American soldier is executed and no one knows how.

A GLOBAL THREAT:
Payne & Jones (his former commanders) offer to spearhead the investigation. They quickly realize that there is more to this atrocity than terrorist reprisal—there is a plot in motion that will burn the world in the fires of a holy war. And it's up to them to stop it.
