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....
