In the world’s undersea realms, the superpowers are pressing. Climate change is ravaging the surface nations, and their militaries are surging into the oceans to seek out new resources to sustain their exploding populations. Now Truman McClusky, mayor of the underwater city, Trieste, must gather a team of operatives and travel the world to steal the most unique and deadly weapon ever invented for use underwater.

A Temperance Brennan Novel

Called in to examine what is left of a body struck by lightning, Tempe traces an unusual tattoo to its source and is soon embroiled in a much larger case. Young men—tourists—have been disappearing on the islands of Turks and Caicos for years. Seven years ago, the first victim was found in a strange location with both hands cut off; the other visitors vanished without a trace. But, recently, tantalizing leads have emerged and only Tempe can unravel them.

Maddeningly, the victims seem to have nothing in common—other than the strange locations where their bodies are eventually found, and the fact that the young men all seem to be the least likely to be involved in foul play. Do these attacks have something to do with the islands’ seething culture of gang violence? Tempe isn’t so sure. And then she turns up disturbing clues that what’s at stake may actually have global significance.

It isn’t long before the sound of a ticking clock grows menacingly loud, and then Temper herself becomes a target.

Massive quakes, volcanic eruptions, and deadly tsunamis herald a greater cataclysm to come—for something is stirring miles under the ocean, a threat hidden for millennia.

As seas turn toxic and coastlines burn, can Sigma Force stop what has been let loose—especially as an old adversary returns, hunting them and thwarting their every move? For any hope of success, Commander Gray Pierce must search for a key buried in the past, hidden deep in Aboriginal mythology. But what Sigma could uncover is even more frightening—something that will shake the very foundations of humanity.

  1. I have tried to find the last two chapters to Ends of the Earth and everywhere I look there is no response to the many of us who want to still be able to read those two chapters. Why can’t you honor that even though you have already finished the voting and written the following book? i don’t understand. We spend the time reading and buying your books and you do this to us?

    1. I assume you are referring to Tim Downs’ novel, Ends of the Earth. I am not Tim Downs, but a reviewer of his series. He wrote Ends of the Earth in 2009 and had those two chapters on his website, which he has since taken down. This is remnants from his blog from when the book was released, perhaps it will help to read these comments by others about the ending:

      Have you read Nick of Time? It pretty much answers what happens at the ending of Ends of the Earth.

      I do wish that Tim Downs writes another Bug Man book, I love the series.
