Effective Engineering Solutions has been inexplicably shut down, and the head of the company, Eli Glinn, has all but vanished. Fresh off a diagnosis that give shim only months to live, Gideon Crew is contacted by one of his coworkers at EES, Manual Garza, who tells him the two have mere hours to collect their belongings before the office closes forever. After years of dedicated service and several high-rick missions, theirs seems like the most ignoble of terminations - until Gideon and Garza happen upon an incredible discovery. After centuries of silence, a code-breaking machine at EES has cracked the long-awaited translation of a centuries-old stone tablet, the Phaistos Disk, that dates back to an otherwise completely unknown, ancient civilizations. The mysteries of the message itself hint at incredible treasures, and perhaps even a world-altering secret. No one remains at EES to take on this most remarkable mission but Gideon and Garza. The two agree to solve the mystery of the Disk's message and split the spoils: the perfect parting gift their employer doesn't know he has given. What lies at the end of the trail may save Gideon's life - or bring it to a sudden, shocking close. As Gideon and Garza soon discover, some missions are more dangerous than others. But as Gideon has proved again and again, there's no such thing as too great a risk when you're living on borrowed time.
