There, a doorway, open to a select few, leads into the past—or the grave. Claire Randall survived the extraordinary passage, not once but twice. Her first trip swept her into the arms of Jamie Fraser, an eighteenth-century Scot whose love for her became legend—a tale of tragic passion that ended with her return to the present to bear his child. Her second journey, two decades later, brought them together again in frontier America. But Claire had left someone behind in the twentieth century. Their daughter, Brianna....<br /><br /> Now Brianna has made a disturbing discovery that sends her to the stone circle and a terrifying leap into the unknown. In search of her mother and the father she has never met, she is risking her own future to try to change history...and to save their lives. But as Brianna plunges into an uncharted wilderness, a heartbreaking encounter may strand her forever in the past...or root her in the place she should be, where her heart and soul belong....

<b>An ancient pandemic returns--and this time, humanity may be altered forever. The race to stop the Atlantis Plague has begun.</b><br /><br />* * *<br /><br />The Atlantis Plague is the second book in <i>THE ORIGIN MYSTERY</i>, a trilogy that has sold over THREE MILLION COPIES worldwide.<br /><br />* * *<br /><br />In Marbella, Spain, Dr. Kate Warner awakens to a horrifying reality: the human race stands on the brink of extinction. A pandemic unlike any before it has swept the globe. Nearly a billion people are dead--and those that the Atlantis Plague does not kill, it transforms at the genetic level. A few rapidly evolve. The remainder devolve.<br /><br />As the world slips into chaos, radical solutions emerge. Industrialized nations offer a miracle drug, Orchid, which they mass produce and distribute to refugee camps around the world. But Orchid is merely a way to buy time. It treats the symptoms of the plague but never cures the disease.<br /><br />Immari International offers a different approach: do nothing. Let the plague run its course. The Immari envision a world populated by the genetically superior survivors--a new human race, ready to fulfill its destiny.<br /><br />With control of the world population hanging in the balance, the Orchid Alliance and the Immari descend into open warfare. Now the last hope for humanity is to find a cure. Kate alone holds the key to unraveling the mystery surrounding the Atlantis Plague. The answer may lie in understanding pivotal events in human history--events when the human genome mysteriously changed. Her journey takes her across the barren wastelands of Europe and northern Africa, but it is her research into the past that takes her where she never expected to go. She soon discovers that the history of human evolution is not what it seems--and setting it right may require a sacrifice she never imagined.<br /><br /><br /><b>SELECTED PRAISE AND PUBLISHED REVIEWS</b><br /><br />“...reads like a superior collaboration between Dan Brown and Michael Crichton.”<br />- <b><i>The Guardian</i></b> on <i>PANDEMIC</i><br /><br />“I finished the book fast because I just couldn’t wait...”<br />- <b>GeekDad</b> on <i>DEPARTURE</i><br /><br />“Riddle (The Origin Mystery trilogy) makes an effort to keep the focus on how his characters react to each other (including to their future selves) rather than to the technological marvels that reshaped their world.”<br />- <b>Publisher’s Weekly</b> on <i>DEPARTURE</i><br /><br />“Well-constructed and tightly-wound as a fine Swiss watch- <i>DEPARTURE</i> has non-stop action, an engaging plot and, of course, wheels within wheels.”<br />- <b>Diana Gabaldon</b>, bestselling author of Outlander on <i>DEPARTURE</i>
