OVERRIDE

The Lure

Bill Napier

St. Martin's Paperbacks

In a top-secret research facility, a team of scientists receive an unexpected message from the depths of space.
 
At first, the blizzard of sub-nuclear particles seemed random. But soon a pattern emerges that could only have come from an alien intelligence far more advanced than our own. 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….in The Lure by Bill Napier.
