The Dark Ark (Paperback)
It took only seconds for NORAD Headquarters to be transformed into a scene of utter chaos as early warning signals flooded in from a network of missile detection sensors. A torrent of men scrambled to their stations seeking to mitigate the threat of attack.

The Prometheus possessed secrets that could change the world - secrets about to be stolen.
