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.

ďThe wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid. And a child shall lead them.Ē She smiled. ďThatís you, Michael. Thatís why Brother Cyrus needs you. Youíre going to help us fulfill the prophecy.Ē

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 Einsteinís remarkable intelligence and is the only person in the world who knows Einsteinís last secretóthe 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 cultís 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 thriller.

We will never see our universe in quite the same way again.

Omega Theory May 15, 2011
Reviewer: P. Sutton from Inglewood, West Australia  
This is book 2 of the series after Final Theory which I really enjoyed. Even though I did not understand the mechanics the actual story was excellent.
This one I did not like the baddies being based on a religious nutter and having all these high placed followers from high places in various Governments and armies just doing his bidding.
I liked the story as far as action goes but I like to believe the storyline and this one I found too far fetched. How one nutter can convince all these high placed people to kill themselves and do his bidding, just did not connect with me.
If you can forgo that part of it , then it is a good story with enough intrigue and suspense that you will read it and enjoy it. As a fictional story it is a good yarn.
