Shelfari edited the description of Nemesis Saturday, August 22, 2009.
THE CODE BURIED IN A CENTURIES-OLD MANUSCRIPT… From a remote Scottish mountain, Dr. Oliver Webb—one of the world’s great physicists—is whisked away by a military helicopter and routed to the Mexican border. Along with the leading men of physics and one sexy atom smasher, Webb is given an impossible task: identify the asteroid—codename Nemesis—that is on course to collide with and destroy America. They have five days to stop it. If they can’t, the President will retaliate first by ordering the U.S. military to pull the nuclear trigger... IS THE ONLY SALVATION… But when one of Webb’s colleagues is found dead, he has every reason to suspect that there is more to Nemesis than he knows. Then, he makes a staggering discovery: That the secret to saving the world is hidden in a 17th Latin century manuscript that has gone mysteriously missing. FOR THE SURVIVAL OF THE U.S. An electrifying race against time, NEMESIS spans centuries and the globe in a white hot journey through physics, history, and geopolitics—and mankind’s ultimate duel with the unknown. “Incredible…extraordinary…a really terrific novel!” --Jeff Long, New York Times bestselling author of The Descent on Splintered Icon
