    • Abstract:
      Summary: "When a newly engaged couple climbs Mount Ararat in Turkey, an avalanche forces them to seek shelter inside a massive cave uncovered by the snow fall. The cave is actually an ancient, buried ship that many quickly come to believe is really Noah's Ark. But when a team of scholars, archaeologists, and filmmakers make it inside the ark for the first time, they discover an elaborate coffin in its recesses ... and when they break it open, they find that the cadaver within is an ugly, misshapen thing ... and it has horns. A massive blizzard blows in, trapping them in that cave thousands of meters up the side of a remote mountain ... but they are not alone"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2017 March #2

Since religion's conception, human beings have striven to find proof that some higher power exists. Sometimes the search is abstract, but in the case of Golden's latest novel, the unearthed proof is horrifyingly real. Engaged thrill seekers Meryam and Adam spend their time traveling the world, publishing books about their adventures, but it isn't until an avalanche on Mount Ararat occurs that they decide to cement their claim to fame. With the help of guides, their group reaches a newly exhumed cave at the site of the avalanche, to discover what looks like Noah's Ark. But the Ark isn't the only thing they find; a mummified body with long horns is uncovered in the ruins, and its presence causes tension among the team of archaeologists and scholars sent to study the artifacts. Fights escalate, people start disappearing, and even the nonbelievers of the team begin to suspect the worst: they've unearthed a demon. Golden takes readers on a terrifying journey into their own worst nightmares with a novel that is sure to chill to the bone. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2017 February #4

The whole is more than the sum of its parts in this exceptional supernatural thriller from bestseller Golden (Dead Ringers). An avalanche on Turkey's legendary Mount Ararat uncovers a cave that may contain the remnants of Noah's Ark. Adventurers, authors, and filmmakers Adam Holzer and Meryam Karga are determined to be the first to stake a claim on the site, and thus get the Turkish government's permission to excavate it. They succeed, despite fierce competition, only to find that the ark contains a hideous and unsettling humanoid skeleton with two horns on its skull. While the scientists and rationalists on the team, including Ben Walker, whose National Science Foundation affiliation is actually a cover for the U.S. Department of Defense, dismiss any talk of demons, someone—or something—begins to pick off members of the expedition. While the contours of the story line will be familiar to genre fans, Golden makes them feel fresh through solid prose, effective characterizations, and a willingness not to pull any plot punches.
