Sinopsis:

The deadliest document ever written must be found.
And time is running out.

It has long been rumored in academic circles that a sixteenth-century monk named Eisenreich took Machiavelli several steps further, writing a masterplan for world domination so dangerous the Pope had him killed to suppress it. But Eisenreich's text, On Supremacy, survived. Some scholars even believed the Third Reich had a copy. But when the bullet-riddled body of a young girl is found in Montana and "Eisenreich" is her dying word, it becomes terrifyingly clear that not only is the document real--someone is planning to use this explosive piece of history in the late twentieth century.
        
This deadly document is at the heart of The Overseer, a chillingly authentic, compulsively readable thriller of global intrigue and political conspiracy that follows a desperate search for a fabled manuscript, one with frightening modern-day implications. Beautiful, troubled government agent Sarah Trent is given just enough information by her covert office to begin digging into the murder of the young girl. Her search takes her to Columbia University and a brilliant young political theorist named Xander Jaspers, who agrees to help her. But neither Xander nor Sarah fully understand the dangerous situation into which they've been thrown. For On Supremacy has fallen into the hands of a cabal intent on using it as a blueprint for ripping apart society as we know it and creating a new world order out of the ashes of the old.
        
The cabal, led by a coldly intelligent mastermind called the Overseer, begins its campaign of terror. As the acts of terrorism--assassinations, bombings, the collapse of the grain market--go off like clockwork, Sarah and Xander realize the only way to prevent total chaos is to find another copy of the manuscript and uncover the identity of the Overseer--and so the race is on.
        
This intelligent, full-throttle thriller is the extraordinary literary debut of a young political theorist, author Jonathan Rabb, who asks: What if such a sophisticated and dangerous sixteenth-century document resurfaced at the turn of the millennium? Would it be the most thrilling discovery of the twentieth century...or the most terrifying? Read On Supremacy at the end of this provocative novel and judge for yourself.

From the Back Cover:

"The Overseer is an exceptional debut thriller, refreshingly original, with a feel-your-pulse plot that warp speeds its way through the centuries. Jonathan Rabb writes with studied knowledge of his material. The characters are well-defined, the dialogue crisp, and the history a shake-and-stir mix of fact and fiction...a smooth blend of Ian Fleming and Umberto Eco."
--Lorenzo Carcaterra, author of Sleepers and Apaches

"The Overseer is a stunning accomplishment, a novel that works both as a smartly plotted, provocative novel of ideas and a taut, complex, thoroughly entertaining thriller reminiscent of early Robert Ludlum. Well-written, intelligent, with a unique concept...a richly satisfying literary debut."
--Larry Bond, author of The Enemy Within and Red Phoenix

"The Overseer is an intelligent, action-packed thriller, a highly original novel that pulls you in from the first intriguing pages and refuses to let up. A riveting piece of suspense fiction that feels chillingly real."
--Kyle Mills, author of Rising Phoenix
