Twenty years after renowned palaeontologist Doctor Aubrey Channing goes missing after making a spectacular discovery in the Badlands of Montana, Ethan Warner and Nicola Lopez of the Defense Intelligence Agency's ARIES program are despatched to investigate bizarre links between the scientist's disappearance and a legendary UFO encounter witnessed by hundreds in the Brazilian town of Varginha. But they are not alone in their quest. Pursued by the cabal of Majestic Twelve, who have chosen to eliminate their foes once and for all, and with Aaron Mitchell's shadowy assassin gunning for revenge against all who have crossed him, suddenly everybody is on the hunt for Channing. As they close in on the mystery so Ethan and Nicola realize that the end has begun, for the Sixth Extinction is already upon us and only one man possesses the key to its cure. From the freezing glaciers of Norway's Doomsday Vault to the remote jungles of Madagascar, the sweltering heat of Brazil's rainforests and a mysterious island in the Atlantic Ocean, Ethan and Nicola must race against time to defeat not only their foes but their allies too. For in the race for survival, it's every man for himself...
