Summary
When two young girls witness what they believe is a meteor streak across the Maine sky, they track it to a small island off the coast. At the same time the National Propulsion Facility finds anomalies in gamma ray data from Mars, and the president's science advisor is investigating strange, radioactive gemstones that suddenly appeared in a Cambodian mine. How on earth could these events be connected? Ex-CIA agent Wyman Ford finds that the "meteor" made a hole straight through the earth. Now he needs to find the connection before the earth suffers another strike.
Critique
A fast-paced scientific thriller with a little Star Trek mixed in. Fans of Michael Crichton will like the exciting premise.
