Review by: Malcolm Torres on June 6, 2016 :
This short story is set up with a series of one-two punches, setting in motion a tight plot involving ancient secrets and high tech mysteries. The plot jolts you from the Grand Canyon where a team attempts to explore an ancient cave and assassin-like bad guys block their way, to the secret depths of the Smithsonian where a team of spooks uncovers ancient secrets with big implications.
