Summary, etc.:
A pulse-pounding, page-turning thriller involving corruption, secrets, and lies at the very deepest levels of government and media. This is mandatory reading for any thriller aficionado. --Steve Berry, New York Times Bestselling Author A shadowy group is manipulating society--and they've only just begun. Late one night, investigative journalist Jack Logan receives a surprise visit from U.S. Senator Malcolm Phillips at his New York apartment. Disheveled and in a panic, the senator swears that he's about to be murdered and pleads with Jack to protect his wife Taylor, who happens to be the only woman Jack has ever truly loved. Days later, Phillips is found dead in a hotel room in Micronesia, the apparent victim of an allergy attack. While the nation mourns, Jack and Taylor race to find the one man who knows the truth. As they're pursued by unknown assailants, their desperate hunt leads them to the Institute, an immense facility shrouded in mystery that has indoctrinated a generation of America's political and media power players. Led by the enigmatic Damon Crosse, the Institute has its tentacles everywhere--but Taylor unknowingly holds the secret to the one thing that Crosse needs to carry out his plan. Taking readers on a thrill ride from the back halls of Congress to the high-rise offices of Madison Avenue and a remote Greek island, The Institute is a provocative, pulse-pounding novel that dares to ask the question: who's really in charge?

    Investigative journalist Jack Logan is speechless when U.S. Senator Malcolm Phillips (now married to Jack's ex-fiancée, Taylor) pushes into his apartment, claiming that Logan placed Taylor in grave danger by scuttling a bill Phillips was ordered to push through. Phillips insists that if he's killed, Jack must protect Taylor and take her to a man named Jeremy who can explain everything. If anything, Jack expected to read that Malcolm had suffered a breakdown, so he's shocked by urgent reports that Malcolm has suddenly died in a diving accident. Jack rushes to Taylor, and they barely escape men attempting to break through her door. As they dive underground, Malcolm's final letter leads them to the horrific truth: Taylor is being hunted by Damon Crosse, the leader of a shadowy but well-connected scientific organization. Crosse believes that Taylor holds the secret to finding a hidden relic he plans to pair with genetic science to draw humankind away from God. A staccato-paced series opener that will appeal to readers seeking conspiracy-laced thrillers with strong Christian themes. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
