Shortly thereafter, Jason Sterling contacts Kasunori Tanaka to berate him over the botched attack on the Hail Mary.  He reminds Tanaka that he owes much of his corporate success and wealth to the clandestine operations conducted by the Blackdoor Group.  As a result of his failure, Sterling kidnaps Tanaka's only son, Toshi.  His return will be dependant upon Tanaka completing another murderous mission for Blackdoor and currying favor with Jason Sterling. After battling the storm for twenty-four hours, the Hail Mary stumbles upon the Cedar Elm.  Strangely, the shipwreck is located 500 hundred miles from its last reported location.  Additionally, the Hail Mary's search and recovery equipment was badly damaged in the attack.  However, after much deliberation, Tulley and Oberlin agree to help Macallan and launch a recovery mission on the Cedar Elm.

On her way to Rockefeller University, Macallan is intercepted by Whitt Roberts posing as a psychiatrist treating her grandmother, Amelia Orsel.  She is suspicious of him, but he finally wins her trust when he provides some insight into her grandmother's mysterious affliction.  Whitt explains that they need to obtain a blood sample from Macallan's grandmother as soon as possible because her time could be running out.  But before Whitt and Macallan can make it to Amelia's apartment, their car is violently T-boned by Anton and Othello who grab Macallan and throw her into their car and speed off.  In the getaway car, Othello grills Macallan about her interaction with Whitt Roberts.  He also takes a sample of Macallan's blood. The three of them arrive at Sutton Manor, an enormous complex of almost 20 townhouses on the outside, but a single compound on the inside.  A woman named Ikoro analyzes Macallan and her blood before she meets the leader of the compound named Seinshun.  He explains that she is very special and that he has known of her for her entire life.  He explains that he is her great-great-great grandfather and is over 400 years old.  Macallan is highly skeptical but agrees to listen to what Seinshun has to say.  He explains that the immortals are dying from an unknown illness.  Macallan needs to find the Key that can save them.  Seinshun informs Macallan that she must travel to Anchorage, Alaska to engage in a treasure hunting operation to search a shipwreck called the Cedar Elm.  He gives her $5,000,000 to assist her in her journey. Macallan rushes back to Rockefeller University to tell her lover, Jimmy Saltzer, what has transpired during her unbelievable day.  But instead, she finds a terrible surprise waiting for her in the laboratory.

Macallan rushes to her grandmother's side.  When she arrives, her grandmother is only semiconscious.  She recognizes Macallan but begins to speak very strangely.  She keeps saying how special Macallan is, and that no one is supposed to know about her.  Macallan is puzzled and mentions the word "Leviathan" which causes her grandmother to become very agitated and complains about hearing voices inside her head.  Soon, she relapses into unconsciousness leaving Macallan confused and worried.  After Sedgewick convinces her to spend the night at her grandmother's lavish Fifth Ave apartment, Macallan discovers a secret staircase under her bed.  She follows the staircase to a hidden room occupied by mysterious large sphere with a single word inscribed on it.  Leviathan.

Chapter 1

Apr 21st, 200840:02

A highly advanced Chinese submarine, the Hei Ten Shi, is on a mysterious mission to deliver an otherworldly cargo to the Marianas Trench, the deepest part of the Earth's ocean.  The Chinese vessel suffers damage while maneuvering through the tight oceanic canyons.  Because the vessel is now sinking rapidly, it enters a race against time to reach its destination, deliver its cargo and rise to the surface.  But before it can release the cargo that is weighing it down, the Chinese vessel is intercepted by an American submarine, the USS Dakota, on a routine patrol to Pearl Harbor.  The Chinese submarine dives to over 21,000 feet to avoid engagement.  But before the Chinese can escape, the cargo "activates" sending out strange pulses of radiation that cause both the American and Chinese submarines to have massive system failures.  As the Hei Ten Shi separates the main components of its ship, the Dakota fears an attack and launches its torpedoes destroying a large part of the Hei Ten Shi. One year later, a CIA operative named Whitt Roberts is called to meet with Jason Sterling.  Sterling is part of the Blackdoor Group, a highly clandestine arm of the CIA that acts in complete autonomy from the rest of the US Government and its laws.  Whitt has been called upon to investigate the disappearance of the Dakota, but Jason Sterling seems to know more than he is letting on.  Whitt explains that a powerful signal was sent out from the Marianas Trench.  But what is even more unusual is that the signal appears to have been answered from a source in outer space.  Jason tells Whitt that he wants him to abandon his search for the Dakota and focus on a new target...in New York City.
