Rachel Kirby is a computer genius whose personal life is hell. While she continues to climb the corporate ranks, her beloved twin sister is plagued by a chronic illness that will eventually kill her, leaving Rachel all alone.
 
Serendipity in the form of a mysterious email lands in Rachel's lap one day, but not without a price. Thousands of miles away, archeologist John Tanek sits trapped inside a collapsed Egyptian tomb with a functioning laptop. He knows that Rachel is the only person who can help him, but time is quickly running out. It turns out the collapse was no accident. John has discovered something very valuable in that tomb, something that humankind has been searching for throughout history, something that Rachel could use as it may hold the key to her sister's cure. While Rachel orchestrates his rescue, she soon finds herself trapped in a dangerous web of deceit and murder. Can she put her trust in John Tanek? She'd do anything to save her sister. Will they both live long enough to unravel the ancient mystery they've found inside the tomb?
With Johansen and Johansen's fast-paced action, charismatic characters, and impeccable research, Storm Cycle will carry you away.

About the Book

Rachel Kirby's beloved twin sister is plagued by a chronic illness that will eventually kill her. Thousands of miles away in an Egyptian tomb, archeologist John Tanek has discovered something that may hold the key to a cure--if he can make it out of the tomb alive.

Read from the Book

A R D M O R E U N I V E R S I T Y H O U S T O N , T E X A S          The trees on the hill should be a perfect cover, Pelham thought.          He moved quickly up the incline from the side of the road where he’d hidden his car.        The sun was low in the sky.  He didn’t have much time before the Kirby woman would be running down the path toward the Science Building.  For the last five days Rachel Kirby had been putting in twenty-hour workdays and taken only four hours to rest at her condo before she’d gone back to the lab to work.  Today should be no different.  She’d drive her car to the parking lot three miles from the Science Building and run the rest of the way.              Pelham knelt down as he reached the trees and gazed down at the campus below.  A few students were strolling on the sidewalk and there was a girl sitting on the steps of the English building working on her laptop.              Should he take them out?  It would confuse the motivation.  The police would think he was just a nutcase if he didn’t focus solely on Rachel Kirby.  But it would also raise a public outcry and make the chase hotter for him.
