David is after ancient civilisation's secrets. The race for survival is on.
When John Stiles is severely injured in a Karate bout, he returns from his near death experience with a new gift - the ability to read minds. After being chased by the secret police through the streets of Munich, he escapes to Cairo.
At the same time in London, after seeing the ancient sword in the antique shop window, Aleksandra experiences an unbearable headache and collapses. The unexplainable fear and the sudden wave of strange visions from ancient times persuade her to undergo regressive hypnosis. Revelations change her and she is urged on a quest to Egypt.
Meanwhile, Egyptian scientists in The Great Pyramid at Giza try to penetrate and see what lay behind The Second Door. Could it be the key that would solve the mystery of The Ancient World?
David, New York tycoon, controlling an intricate network of underground societies is also on the quest to discover a closely-guarded secret that had lain hidden for centuries - an ancient piece of knowledge left behind by an advanced civilization holding the key to absolute power and understanding of life.
Here the race for knowledge and survival heats up, from ancient Babylon and Egypt via medieval Europe to modern-day world.
