In a top-secret research facility, a team of scientists receive an unexpected message from the depths of space.

Now it's up to Irish mathematician Tom Petrie to decode these messages and unlock their secret--one that is believed to contain an unimaginable technological breakthrough, and has the power to change the course of human history...unless the world's superpowers succeed in suppressing the truth. Can Petrie and his team unmask the message's true intent while evading those who aim to crush its extraordinary revelations? A desperate race against time--and through space--is about to begin....

Über den Autor (2007)

Bill Napier was born in Scotland in 1940. He studied astronomy at Glasgow University, and has spent most of his career as an astronomer at observatories in Scotland, Italy, and Northern Ireland. He is an honorary professor in the Centre for Astrobiology at Cardiff University. In his research he has discovered a process which allows life to spread around the Galaxy, taking hold wherever it finds suitable environments—such as the Earth. He now lives in Ireland with his wife Nancy and divides his time between writing novels and carrying out research with colleagues in Wales and California. He likes to cook but faces stiff competition from wife and children.
