It starts with a nearly empty plane crashing in the Himalaya. Archeologist Eva Rajek struggles through the cold and the wreckage, looking for survivors. When alpine engineer and mountaineer Jason Quinn, a man with a past mired in tragedy and violence, rescues her, neither of them are expecting wave after wave of Chinese assassins to try to murder them.
Pursued to America, the frozen ice of the Gulf of Finland, and the soaring heights of Hong Kong, Quinn and Eva connect her archeological investigations with the machinations of charismatic shipping magnate and cathedral-builder, David Hong. As a scheme to obtain a private audience with the Pope at the Vatican comes to fruition, Hong's fanatical followers are preparing for global warfare.
When Hong is identified as the man behind the assassins, Quinn takes the fight to him, leaving a swath of destruction in his path. If Quinn fails to stop Hong's plan, a terrible secret just might lead the entire Catholic Church to crumble.
RESURRECT is the first book in the Jason Quinn series. Fans of Matthew Reilly, Jeremy Robinson, James Rollins, and Clive Cussler should all enjoy this first adventure in the exploits of mountaineer Jason Quinn.

If you've been craving some old school Cussler, you really need to read RESURRECT." --Sean Ellis, author of INTO THE BLACK and MAGIC MIRROR
