The Joshua Stone
Now Available from HarperCollins
In 1959, a secret government experiment went terribly awry. Six scientists mysteriously disappeared and could not be rescued. In desperation, President Eisenhower ordered the lab sealed shut and all records of its existence destroyed. Now, fifty-four years later, something from the lab has emerged.
When mysterious events begin occurring along the New River Valley in West Virginia, government agents Mike Califano and Ana Thorne are sent to investigate. What they discover will shake the foundations of science and religion and put both agents in the crosshairs of a deadly, worldwide conspiracy. A powerful and mysterious force has been unleashed, and it’s about to fall into the wrong hands. To prevent a global catastrophe, Califano and Thorne must work together to solve a biblical mystery that has confounded scholars for centuries. And they must do so quickly, before time runs out . . . forever.

"The Joshua Stone by James Barney is an epic thriller, vivid, fast moving, and beautifully imagined. From the opening chapters to the final twist, it pulls the reader along at high speed, combining science, high technology, and ancient Biblical mystery into a fascinating and brilliantly original story. I highly recommend it!"
