Archeologist John Ackerman uncovers a meteorite while working on a millennium old Vikings excavation in Greenland. He realizes that the stone is radioactive, struck earth around 50,000 years ago, and that Eric the Red and his followers must have buried it in this cave because they must have learned first hand the danger it posed.

Two deadly opponents want to possess the Viking meteorite to use in constructing a devastating super- bomb that can wipe out an entire city in a blink. Aleimein Al-Kahlifa and his Muslim group believe this as an omen from God to use with a nuclear device stolen in the Ukraine to destroy London, while billionaire industrialist Halifax Hickman sees the opportunity to use the material with his industrial know how to destroy Islam. Juan Cabrillo, Chairman of the Corporation, sends his experts to stop both factions from succeeding in their respective mass destruction plots.

As with the first Oregon Files book, GOLDEN BUDDHA, Clive Cussler and Craig Dirgo provide an action-packed thriller filled with incredible amounts of technological elements especially of nuclear and naval facts.
