Une pluie de météorites d'une violence inouïe s'abat sur l'Océan Pacifique.

Quand les communications avec l'île Christmas sont interrompues, il comprend que la nature a déjoué tous les pronostics. Un méga-tsunami se précipite sur Hawaï et les minutes sont comptées. Il lui reste moins d'une heure pour faire évacuer un million de personnes. Et pour sauver sa famille, qui profite du soleil à Waikiki...
Il ne reverrait jamais sa fille. Ses meurtriers étaient en possession d'un vestige dont la puissance défiait l'imagination. Et il allait mourir sans avoir pu jeter ne serait-ce qu'un regard à la plus grande découverte archéologique de tous les temps... L'archéologue Dilara Kenner mène des fouilles au Pérou quand elle reçoit des informations cruciales sur la disparition de son père, qui a passé sa vie à chercher l'Arche de Noé. Aussitôt, elle comprend qu'elle est en danger.
Un homme peut l'aider : Tyler Locke, un ingénieur de l'armée. Lancée à ses côtés dans un compte à rebours mortel, elle n'a que sept jours pour retrouver l'arche sacrée. Car entre de mauvaises mains, son secret pourrait détruire l'humanité...

Ce composant, une vieille femme prétend le posséder - et cette femme, c'est la cliente de Tyler Locke. En acceptant de la rencontrer, Tyler était loin de se douter qu'il serait précipité dans une des plus grandes affaires d'espionnage du siècle. Ni qu'il ferait face à une des plus sérieuses menaces qu'ait connue l'humanité ! Mais le compte à rebours est lancé...
