RRP  $32.99 $30.75

An eleven-year girl named Rose is riding her bike in the woods near her home in Deadwood, USA, when the ground disappears beneath her feet. When she comes to, she finds herself in a deep pit, lying in the palm of a giant metallic hand.

Seventeen years later, Dr Rose Franklyn is leading a top-secret scientific investigation into the strange artefact she unwittingly discovered all those years ago. It is clear to Rose and her team that the hand is not only ancient but also not of this world. A search begins for the rest of this vast creation. What they find defies their imaginations: it is perhaps the greatest mystery humanity has ever faced.

But even more terrifying is the power it begins to unleash . . .
