The harrowing mission of Kelly Ramer to the far off site of the lost Sphinx has
ended in failure. A chance visit by a messenger discovers his intervention and the Assassin cult prevents the destruction of their hidden archive. But what has happened to Kelly?
Physicist Paul Dorland refuses to believe he has perished and
has scoured the history for evidence of his survival, determined to bring his friend home. Yet the unseen enemy has planned yet another intervention on the Meridians of Time, a Grand Transformation that will
re-write all of Western history from the 8th Century on, and soon the project team is launched on a desperate search to find the hidden clues, Pushpoints that will lever events as Time waits in a breathless
suspension for the hammer to fall upon the Anvil of Fate.
