Two brothers and a beautiful archaeologist exploring ancient mysteries in the Greek Isles get swept into a deadly maelstrom of Bacchanalian horror….
It was the greatest secret of the ancient world, held under penalty of death. It lasted over millennia. A procession of thousands pouring out from Athens to gather on the plains of Eleusis. The giants of empires all took part Socrates, Plato, Pericles, Augustus, Hadrian, Marcus Aurelius. A hallucinogenic elixir was poured. Secret, sacred objects revealed. In the great dark Hall of Initiation, an awe-inspiring transformation took place, a profound experience of death and rebirth…. Such was the celebrated pagan rite known as the Eleusinian Mysteries. Midnight. Three figures descend a perilous cliff to the ancient site of the Oracle of Delphi. Jack Duran has joined his older brother, Dan, to perform an unusual and unauthorized experiment. With the help of Dan’s girlfriend, the brilliant young archaeologist Phoebe Auerbach, the trio will put the famous Oracle to the test.
Breathing fumes in the ruins of the Oracle’s temple, Phoebe falls into a trance of possession and succumbs to a terrifying vision, a foreboding premonition of horrors to come and a clue to the secret of the Mysteries.
