When journalist Alex Dolan is hired by multibillionaire Stanislaw Clayton to write a book about the Sioux Crossing Supercollider, the world’s first privately funded high-energy physics facility, this is a dream job.
Clayton wants to use the collider to research the nature of gravity, with an eye on using the results in space exploration, and his thirteen-billion-dollar pet project has run into a series of high-profile snags and delays. There’s talk of the American government pulling its support of the collider, and Clayton needs someone to put a good spin on it.
For Wendy, Dolan’s wife, it’s less of a dream. She’s been uprooted from her home and job in New England and dumped in this shabby little town in the middle of nowhere, and eventually she begins an affair with one of the scientists.
Then something goes wrong at the site. Very wrong.
After the accident, Dolan finds himself changed, and the only one who can stop the disaster from destroying us all.
