Imagine a world where soldiers regenerate and continue fighting without pause, where suicide bombers live to strike again and again. This is the dream of Richard Ridley, founder of Manifold Genetics, and he has just discovered the key to eternal life: an ancient artifact buried beneath a Greek-inscribed stone in the Peruvian desert.

When Manifold steals the artifact and abducts archeologist Dr. George Pierce, United States Special Forces Delta operator Jack Sigler, call sign King, and his "Chess Team" —Queen, Knight, Rook, Bishop, and their handler, Deep Blue—give chase. Formed under special order from President Duncan, they are the best of America's Special Forces, tasked with antiterrorism missions that take them around the world against any threat, ancient, modern, and at times, inhuman. With cutting-edge weapons, tough-as-nails tactics, and keen intellects, they stand alone on the brink, facing the world's most dangerous threats.

Ridley's plan to create unstoppable soldiers has just made him threat number one. Tension soars along with the body count as the team faces high-tech security forces, hordes of "regens," the horrific results of Manifold's experiments, and a resurrected mythological predator complete with regenerative abilities, seven heads, and a savage appetite. The Chess Team races to save Pierce and stop Manifold before they change the face of genetics—and human history—forever.

Heart-pounding action combines with adrenaline-charged suspense in the first of Jeremy Robinson's smart, sharp series featuring the Chess Team.

Jeremy Robinson does it again! I finally had a chance to read this, simply loved it! Action, sci-fi, with a bit of horror-just enough. I'm quickly loving the chess team books, starting with Prime, which was also excellent. READ THIS BOOK!

Almost instantaneous regeneration bugs me. So unlikely if not impossible.

A great book full of action and just enough supernatural. It has a great military background. After this one I am reading the full serie.
