In this riveting follow-up to The Grail Conspiracy, famed journalist Cotten Stone is at the top of her craft until one of her discoveries is proven to be a hoax. Without a steady job, credibility, or a shred of self-respect, the struggling reporter fades from the limelight. A year later at a famous Inca site, she unearths a crystal tablet that predicts the Great Flood and another final "cleansing" -- yet to take place -- to be led by the daughter of an angel. According to the Venatori -- an ancient society of spiritual warriors -- a series of these sacred tablets exist . . . and the last one holds the key to surviving Armegeddon. Racing to recover this last secret before the Fallen Ones, Cotten comes face to face with her terrifying destiny, a legacy to battle the Son of the Dawn until the End of Days.


"Fascinating and breathless, The Last Secret by Lynn Sholes and Joe Moore will leave you glued to your chair. From Texas to Peru and Italy, the story sweeps across centuries in a quest for the secret key to surviving Armageddon. Sholes and Moore are true story-tellers, with unerring eyes and the souls of artists. You'll love this one!"—Gayle Lynds, New York Times Bestselling author of The Last Spymaster

"Demonic possession, strange suicides, and Biblical prophecy collide in Sholes and Moore's The Last Secret, an intelligent religious thriller with bite. Once again, Cotten Stone proves herself to be a heroine for the new millennium. Insightful, engrossing . . . but more importantly, a suspenseful thriller from first page to last!"—James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of Black Order

"Hold on tight to The Last Secret--and enjoy the ride!"—Nelson Erlick, author of The Xeno Solution and GermLine
