An ordinary middle-aged man of Scottish origin lives a quiet and retired life in the mountains of Southern Italy with his wife. One day Cole meanders in the mountains where he encounters an object of unkwn origin. His life and that of the world is changed forever. The object assimilates him physically, conferring unimaginable power. Motivated to arrest what he sees as one of mankind's greatest failings, he utilises his newfound powers to challenge the world's most powerful governments and drive them to change. The Pool goes where book has ever gone before. This imaginative vel takes on world leaders and the Vatican, as it strives to bring sense to global affairs. When fearful governments stand up to Cole by threatening nuclear attack, who will be the Saviour?
