Publisher's Summary

When past and present collide...

In 1959, nine hikers of the Dyatlov expedition perished while crossing a remote mountain range in the Soviet Union. More than sixty-five years later, the circumstances surrounding their deaths remain a mystery. In 1995, Julie Sigler was killed in an Air Force training exercise crash, but the circumstances of her death are never called into question... until she appears on TV, twenty years later, standing beside the current President of the United States.

The world will burn...

Disavowed and on the run, the black ops Chess Team is in search of one of their own: Former President Tom Duncan. Held in a secret U.S. government detainment site after sacrificing his freedom to ensure the team's, Duncan, call sign Deep Blue, hasn't been seen or heard from in a year. Meanwhile, the team's leader, Jack Sigler, call sign King, is on the trail of a woman who just might be his sister Julie—back from the dead and working for his enemies. Drawn into a labyrinth of intrigue, King discovers a scheme to topple the U.S. government and forge a new global empire.

An empire will rise from the ashes.

To stop a war that could destroy civilization, King and the Chess Team infiltrate the frozen Russian wilderness, battle the elements and inhuman abominations spawned in Cold War laboratories, and go head-to-head with a powerful enemy, ascending from the pages of history. Torn between loyalty to his family, his teammates, and his country, King faces his most daunting challenge yet. The stakes have never been higher or more personal.

New York Times and #1 Audible bestseller Jeremy Robinson and international bestseller Sean Ellis, the duo behind Herculean and Cannibal, are back for the eighth novel in the pulse-pounding Jack Sigler Thriller series. With the ancient mystery of James Rollins and the frenetic pacing of Matthew Reilly, and with an all too plausible civilization-ending scenario, Empire will please new listeners and longtime Sigler fans alike.
