An exciting new adventure - introducing number-one New York Times best-selling coauthor Jack Du Brul and his erudite geologist with a special taste for international intrigue, Philip Mercer.
Sinking thousands of feet below the surface of the earth in the Leister Deep copper mine in Minnesota, Philip Mercer rides a series of heavy-duty elevators to visit his old friend and mentor, Abraham Jacobs. Jacobs has led a research team to the deepest section of the mine for a groundbreaking study into climate change and cosmic rays. But as Mercer approaches the bottom, he is stunned to hear the unmistakable report of automatic gunfire in the massive underground chambers. He can't stop the inevitable: by the time Mercer finds his way to them, his dear friend, and the entire research team, have been efficiently executed. Mercer is left seeking answers...and revenge.
This sets in motion a propulsive thriller intertwined with intrigue, vengeance, and cutting-edge science. Mercer is thrust into an international hunt for the murderers - and the frightening secret of what they were looking for. The Lightning Stones is a smart rocket ride...and a franchise in the making.
Jack Du Brul became a number-one New York Times best-selling author with Clive Cussler, cowriting the Oregon series that has become a fan favorite. Du Brul's own backlist - featuring Philip Mercer - now serves as a launching pad for the reintroduction of Mercer on a much larger level.
"I don't know how he does it, but Jack Du Brul just gets better with every book. In The Lightning Stones, his hero Philip Mercer really comes into his own. This is the most un-put-downable thriller I've read in ages." (Lincoln Child, number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Forgotten Room)
"Fresh, original, and incredibly ingenious, The Lightning Stone is one of the best thrillers I have read in years. This is wall-to-wall excitement! Nobody writes like Du Brul." (Brad Thor, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Code of Conduct)
"Wow! The Lightning Stones is a labyrinth of science, history, action, and adventure, featuring the wary geologist/spy Philip Mercer. A perfect blend of menace with normality." (Steve Berry, number-one internationally best-selling author of The Patriot Threat)
