The only way to save the future is to decode the past. The only way to decode the past is to save the future.

Archaeologist Sheppard Smyth has staked his career and the honorable memory of his wife and partner on proving his widely panned theory: Cleopatra VII, the last sovereign pharaoh of Egypt, was not a victim of suicide as history suggests, but of a well-concealed murder. When a statue of the doomed Queen is unearthed in a pre-Columbian excavation site in Mexico, Shep rushes to investigate and, hopefully, find the proof that has evaded him for so long. The statue, however, is only the first clue suggesting a mysterious connection between Mesopotamia and Mesoamerica, and possibly - beyond. Suddenly thrust into the heated rivalry between sexy and enigmatic antiquities thief Victoria Kent and the infamous Russian mafioso Dmitri Kronastia, Shep finds himself a common pawn played by forces working to see out a quest older than the pyramids and cloaked in the Mayan Doomsday prophecy of 12.21.12.

I'm a big fan of originality and I've never heard a story even remotely like this!

A class act

After listening and reviewing a number of audio dramas, I count Killian McRae's 12.21.12 as one of the best. The plot is fascinating and the characters intriguing.
The audio quality is a cut above most others and there are no dull moments. I recommend this show.

This was an amazing ride. I loved the way the author wove the story, the mythology and the real world into a seamless whole. If you like magic, mythology and a good solid story, this is the podcast for you.
