From the Publisher:
Wyman Ford is tapped for a secret expedition to Cambodia... to locate the source of strangely beautiful gemstones that do not appear to be of this world.
A brilliant meteor lights up the Maine coast... and two young women borrow a boat and set out for a distant island to find the impact crater.
A scientist at the National Propulsion Facility discovers an inexplicable source of gamma rays in the outer Solar System. He is found decapitated, the data missing.
High resolution NASA images reveal an unnatural feature hidden in the depths of a crater on Mars... and it appears to have been activated.
Sixty hours and counting.
When Wyman Ford gets the call about a top secret mission to investigate a gemstone mine in Cambodia, he assumes there must be more there than meets the eye-there usually is in his line of work. Without wasting a syllable in this action-packed SF-tinged adventure, Douglas Preston links Ford's investigation up with bizarre astrological events in Maine, as well as some conspiratorial activities within NASA. IMPACT delivers the very thing its title invokes, and will sure to keep thriller fans entertained.
