Lawyer Victoria Conroy and Darrel Boone, an expert in paranormal phenomena, meet for the first time at a London law office. Five hours later, a taxi deposits Victoria and Darrel at the gates of a mysterious and imposing castle in present day Austria. Their assigned mission is to recover a device resembling a large pendulum. The device has been stolen by a fringe group of religious fanatics and is believed to be hidden in the castle. The pendulum’s ability to maximize the earth’s energy, coupled with a rapidly approaching solar eclipse, now poses a serious threat to human survival. Victoria and Darrel must find the pendulum and stop it before midnight to avoid a catastrophe of potentially global consequences.
