Some things are better left unknown. Some are better left unsaid. And some are better left undiscovered. When two best friends uncover a mysterious crystal, they set in motion a series of extraordinary events that put their lives at risk and leave the future of the world hanging in the balance. A taut thriller full of unrelenting suspense, Gnosis is a scintillating exploration of time and the relationship between past, present, and future. Mike Summers is an avid outdoorsman full of energy and vigor. His best friend Jim is not. Yet they often spend days hiking in the Cascade Mountains together and today is one of those days. What makes today different, however, is the cave they discover--and the path it will lead them on. Deep inside the cavern is a crystal that they will come to konw as Gnosis. Embedded within the crystal itself is a message that is incredibly difficult to obtain. Together they try desperately to crack the code to no avail. When they recruit the owner of a groundbreaking encryption company, however, their luck takes a dramatic turn. They struggle to unlock the message of the most beautiful woman either man has ever seen. But their discovery prompts evil forces to unite to keep the mysteries of the crystal hidden. If they don't, the future of our world will be decided by the world that has been. The question is, is it for the better--or for the worse? Deftly paced with thought-provoking twists and shocking turns, Gnosis keeps you guessing as it dives deeper into the heart of our existence. As inventive as it is revelatory, Gnosis is a fascinating journey into the unknown--and the only recently discovered.
