(Revised 2nd Edition)
Dr. Holmes was thoroughly bored with his psychiatric profession until he met Hastelloy. The man is named after a durable metal capable of surviving under high-stress service where more common materials fail; ironic considering he’s an insane asylum patient.
Hastelloy is convinced he’s locked in a battle for the survival of mankind with the mysterious species Alpha. This conflict supposedly began when Hastelloy and his alien crew crashed on Earth during the time of ancient Egypt. Dr. Holmes listens with understandable skepticism to the patient’s story about his involvement with building the Great Pyramid and Sphinx, bringing about the rise of Pharaohs, and even assisting Moses with the slave exodus to the Promised Land. Is Hastelloy crazy, or is it crazy to ignore him?
Meanwhile, a group of archeologists make new discoveries in the Giza plateau. While investigating previously unknown chambers found inside the Great Pyramid and Sphinx they come face to face with elements intent on preserving those secrets. Egypt’s recorded history, and Hastelloy’s true mental state, are drawn into question by what they find.
All the while a National Security Agent grapples with NASA amid the launch of a new deep space probe capable of broadcasting a message that will be heard by others. Is this threat a product of NSA paranoia or an attempt by alien influences on Earth to phone home? Both sides will stop at nothing to further their cause.
Mankind's past present and future are revealed in this gripping thriller that does not let go for a single page, and has enough twists and turns to test even the most sturdy safety harness. The Origins of all will be revealed.
