“Konrath is one of the greatest thriller writers alive.”
—Blake Crouch, bestselling author of Wayward Pines
In 1906, a crew of workers at the Panama Canal unearthed something that could not be identified or explained. Something sinister. And very much alive . . .
More than a century later, a team of scientists gather at an underground facility in New Mexico to determine what this being is—the most amazing discovery in the history of mankind—and how it has managed to survive. A biologist will analyze its structure. A veterinarian will study its behavior. A linguist will translate its language. But even the greatest minds in the world can not answer one inescapable question: Could this ancient creature, this mockery of God and nature, actually be the ancient demon known as . . . the Beast?
From bestselling author J.A. Konrath comes a tenseand thrilling exploration into the mysteries of life and death, good and evil, and the original source of our darkest fears . . .
