A fast-paced mystery that combines modern-day action with ancient Mesopotamian intrigue. Half a dozen children born on the same day eighteen months ago all begin speaking an ancient language that hasn't been spoken for two thousand years. But it is what they are saying that is truly puzzling - between them they possess a history of the entire world since the rise of the Babylonian Empire. An Australian archaeologist, his American journalist wife, and his university professor, embark on a journey that takes them all around the globe - including Madagascar, Sweden, Mongolia, America, Syria, Turkey and Australia - to find the children and get to the bottom of the mystery. Along the way they are pursued by a shadowy government agency, struggle to survive as the forces of nature seem to conspire against them and encounter a NASA scientist whose discoveries lead them to the realisation that they are involved in something with consequences far more deadly than they could ever have imagined.
