Blasphemyby Douglas Preston
Synopses & Reviews
The world's biggest supercollider, locked in an Arizona mountain, was built to reveal the secrets of the very moment of creation: the Big Bang itself.
The Torus is the most expensive machine ever created by humankind, run by the worlds most powerful supercomputer. It is the brainchild of Nobel Laureate William North Hazelius. Will the Torus divulge the mysteries of the creation of the universe? Or will it, as some predict, suck the earth into a mini black hole? Or is the Torus a Satanic attempt, as a powerful televangelist decries, to challenge God Almighty on the very throne of Heaven?
Twelve scientists under the leadership of Hazelius are sent to the remote mountain to turn it on, and what they discover must be hidden from the world at all costs. Wyman Ford, ex-monk and CIA operative, is tapped to wrest their secret, a secret that will either destroy the world…or save it.
The countdown begins…
Some call it the greatest scientific breakthrough in history, others call it blasphemy!
While using the world's most powerful supercollider to unlock the mysteries of the universe, scientists soon discover a secret so devastating they must conceal it at all costs. Preston's latest bestseller--called a page-turning thriller of science and religion by Jeffery Deaver--is available in a tall Premium Edition.
