OMEGA THEORY by Mark Alpert - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK
See all titles by Mark Alpert.
David Swift and Monique Reynolds desperately try to stop a group of religious zealots from re-creating the Big Bang.
“The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid. And a child shall lead them.” She smiled. “That’s you, Michael. That’s why Brother Cyrus needs you. You’re going to help us fulfill the prophecy.”
The Omega Theory opens
with media reports that, despite U.S. warnings, Iran has tested a
nuclear bomb. But the blast from the device is different and far more
dangerous than that of any previous nuclear weapon. Surveillance
instruments show that for one split second an event occurred that had
not taken place since the Big Bang fourteen billion years ago.
Meanwhile, science historian David Swift and quantum physicist Monique
Reynolds learn that their autistic son, Michael, has been kidnapped by a
militant cult called the True Believers. Michael, a descendant of
Albert Einstein, has inherited Einstein’s remarkable intelligence and is
the only person in the world who knows Einstein’s last secret—the Final
Theory, a set of equations that could explain all the forces of nature.
Only those who understand the key to creation could know how to destroy
it. The Iranian nuclear blast is a demonstration of this understanding.
Soon David and Monique realize their desperate search for Michael is
also a desperate race to stop the horrific power of the theory from
being unleashed. Joining forces with FBI Agent Lucille Parker, David and
Monique race from the Old City of Jerusalem to the deserts of
Turkmenistan to rescue Michael and stop the cult’s fanatic leader. Their
journey proves just how difficult it is to stop those who are willing
to die in the name of God. Praised by bestselling peers such as Douglas
Preston and James Rollins, Mark Alpert shows he is at the top of his
writing game and the cutting edge of science, seamlessly weaving fact
and fiction with nonstop heart-pounding action in this explosive
We will never see our universe in quite the same way again.
