Description

In Douglas Preston's Blasphemy, 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 world's 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…

    Intriguing, easy to read, a real page turner! Loved it immensely, definitely a must read for any sci-fi people
  • A good read but sacrilegious in my opinion.

    This book reflects the author's excellent ability to create and tell a story. However, the story itself has all likelihood of being accepted as truth instead of fiction. It is my opinion that the author demonstrated immense irresponsibility in writing this book, as did the publisher for putting it into print.

    I rarely give a book five stars, but I was on the edge of my seat from cover to cover. I've read the Pendergast series by Preston and Child, and decided to try a book by each of them individually, I highly recommend everyone do the same.
