Liam Michaels isn't just a wealthy art dealer and photographer. He is actually Azrael, the angel of death, an immortal sentinel created thousands of years ago before the dawn of man for the purpose of finding and destroying true evil.|
Azrael and his Core, a group of highly trained commandos, have just squashed attempted attacks on New York and Chicago by terrorists wielding neutron bombs. In the process, they discovered who was behind the threat: the Ba, an ancient warrior people controlled by a demon-the demon Azrael has been battling for more than three thousand years. Now the fight is about to come to a climax as Azrael and his team pursue the demon across the United States and Europe in a desperate effort to prevent a global nuclear holocaust.
While this high-tech thriller rides the borders of the imagination and tangles with the unthinkable, the futuristic weaponry and advanced military systems employed by Azrael and his commandos arise from technologies that actually exist today in prototype form. In this chilling tale of terrorism, Azrael and the Core must utilize their most daring maneuvers, ingenious countertactics, and flat-out heroics in a brutal battle over the fate of the world.
