The next world war begins over the Internet. By early summer 2011, Ali Omar, a former U.S. intelligence officer, resurfaces as the leader of a rogue cabal of computer experts operating inside Chechnya. Their creation, The Third Millennium, a computer virus designed to manipulate the Internet and shape a new world destiny, is usurped by a malevolent presence initiating the assault on the Holy Land foretold in biblical prophecies. Unsealing the ancient prophecies, the presence molds the behavior of all who view a computer screen into evil incarnate through the commission of acts of violence. John Granger, computer forensics expert and special assistant to the Department of Homeland Security, races against time to locate and eliminate the source of the virus tracing its footprints by deciphering a series of messages deposited on compromised government computers. As he investigates the scenes of the victims of the new cyber-evil, Granger is unaware he has made himself a target for assassination.
