Brian January about this book: An ancient tablet holds the key to the fate of mankind... "Emerald" is a fast-paced thriller starring OSR agents Park Skarda and April Force. Joining forces with Dr. Laura "Flinders" Carlson, a brilliant linguist, they embark on a search for the Emerald Tablet of Thoth, the fabled texts of the legendary priest-king of Atlantis that reveal the existence of an unknown power source, an element so powerful that a single teaspoon could turn an entire city into molten slag. But there are others who want the element, too—members of an ancient cult who are plotting to destroy the Earth in a planet-wide deluge
Hunted by a psychotic assassin and fanatic followers of the cult, the heroes are plunged into a deadly race against time, a race they must survive at all costs if they are to find the Tablet and keep it out of their enemies' hands. From secret chambers beneath the Sphinx to a hidden vault in the bowels of the Vatican to a Nazi U-boat perfectly preserved in the oxygen-starved depths of the Black Sea, Skarda, April, and Flinders pursue a path of danger and death to save mankind from ultimate destruction. Length: 106,000 words (approximately 425 printed pages)
