Review

An all-singing, all-dancing, cover-to-cover thrills and spills action adventure with a thought-provoking idea at its core... -- Daily Mirror

From the Back Cover

The Light Age has dawned

Light divides the universe into two: day and night. Good and evil. Life and death. Now its power, harnessed by a new generation of optical computers,attempts to answer mankind's last great question:

What happens to us when we die?

This is perilous knowledge, however, as the brilliant young neurologist Dr Miles Fleming discovers. He has successfully used state-of-the-art optical computing technology to exploit the untapped potential of human brainwaves, apparently achieving the impossible. During the course of his work he unwittingly makes a staggering new discovery somewhere in the twilight zone between life and death. When he is unable to explain his discovery scientifically, the traumatic death of his brother forces Fleming to search beyond the certainties of this world and probe the darkness of the next . . .

But Fleming is not alone in wanting to shine a light on the truth. The reclusive genius responsible for developing the revolutionary optical computer which made Fleming's research possible has his own agenda. Secretly working with a charismatic religious leader, he seeks to exploit what lies beyond death for his own breathtakingly ambitious ends. As Fleming becomes entangled in their ruthless scheme, he has to confront his own darkest fears and beliefs to save not only his own soul but that of all humanity. Only when it is too late does he realize that there are some things one should never know . . .

Lucifer is a heartstopping descent into our deepest fears. At its core is the story of one man's courageous quest for meaning and purpose in a world where hope is dangerously elusive.
