Blasphemy

by Douglas Preston

Some call it the greatest scientific breakthrough in history, others call it blasphemy!

Science and religion go toe-to-toe: Deep in an Arizona mountain, a group of scientists are hours away from re-creating the Big Bang . . . and a fanatic religious group will do anything to stop them.

The world's biggest supercollider, locked in an Arizona mountain, was built to reveal the secrets of the very moment of creation: the Big Bang itself.

Isabella is the most expensive machine ever created by humankind, run by the world’s most powerful supercomputer. It is the brainchild of Nobel Laureate William North Hazelius. Will Isabella divulge the mysteries of the creation of the universe? Or will it, as some predict, suck the earth into a mini black hole? Or is Isabella a Satanic attempt, as a powerful televangelist decries, to challenge God Almighty on the very throne of Heaven?

Twelve scientists under the leadership of Hazelius are sent to the remote mountain to turn it on, and what they discover must be hidden from the world at all costs. Wyman Ford, ex-monk and CIA operative, is tapped to wrest their secret, a secret that will either destroy the world…or save it.

Preston presents in Blasphemy a page-turning thriller that also addresses the hot topic of Science vs. Religion, which has been the subject of a few bestselling non-fiction books, including Sam Harris's End of Faith and Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion.
