A scientific breakthrough of such magnitude it could radically alter the future of humanity—for better or worse—is in the wrong hands. Graduate students from M.I.T. have stolen a breakthrough in wormholes from renowned Professor of Physics Nicholas Fischer. Their leader, Nick Fischer Jr., has convinced the group to assassinate powerful politicians and World Bank executives, privy to the discovery, to prevent them from using it for their own New World Order agenda and egregious profits. Using wormholes for swift, traceless, attacks and exits, they execute the first mission. Fischer Sr. is arrested for the murders, having been framed by his son.
Chase Manhattan, man of danger, and part of a new breed of modern-day discovery seekers, desires to settle down. He’s met a beautiful woman he hadn’t seen since high school and seeks a long-lasting relationship. Ready to leave crime-solving behind, he’s taking a position as an associate professor of physics at UC Irvine. His idyllic plans are interrupted when he uncovers the scheme.
As if tampering with wormholes in unchartered spatial realms wasn’t enough trouble, the naïve use of these portals unlocks Pandora’s Box, unleashing demonic forces of Biblical, Armageddon magnitude. China’s leadership has been usurped by a military leader who is now possessed by an archfiend from hell and its army is backed up by a demonic host of death angels on a mission to kill the entire human race, thrusting global events toward World War III almost overnight
Love, sacrifice, greed, betrayal, and spiritual contemplation define this thriller of science gone too far. Chase Manhattan must discover a depth of courage and rely on the strength of his sole mate Susan Anderson if he is to destroy this technology mankind is clearly not ready for.
