Dance of Death

Author(s): John Case

Thriller

From the masterful creator of The Genesis Code and The Murder Artist: John Case's latest chilling exploration of terror and suspense. Jack Wilson has just been released from the Federal Correctional Institution Allenwood, a maximum security prison, in White Deer, Pennsylvania. Now that he's a free man, he is hell-bent on a 'return to Paradise'. By which he means the destruction of Western civilization - which he refers to as 'the great levelling'. A Native American by birth, though skeptical of so-called 'Indian culture', Wilson is a brilliant mathematician obsessed with the secret notebooks of Nicola Tesla - and the 'Ghost Dance' of his historical namesake, the Paiute Indian Jack Wilson. Tesla, a turn-of-the-century genius, claimed (and the KGB believed) that he had discovered a weapon of unparalleled destructiveness, one that used harmonic resonance to dismantle the molecular structure of any target. It is Wilson's belief that Western civilization is a fragile enterprise, so technically interdependent upon its various components, that a carefully targeted attack upon its infrastructure might well bring the whole thing down. And that was also the idea of the first Jack Wilson, the Paiute Indian contemporary of Tesla whose vision of the Ghost Dance imagined a kind of Indian Rapture brought about by a great shaking of the earth - after which the white civilization would be gone. In our time, Jack Wilson sets that diabolical scheme in motion...
