Zig Zag (Paperback)
|A cross between ABC''s hit show "Lost" and Michael Crichton''s "Timeline," this lightning-paced techno-thriller tells a story about a group of scientists selected to take part in a secret research project and they horror they unleash after they meddle with time.|
From the Publisher:
Hiding dangerous discoveries that she made a decade earlier while working with a covert string theory research team, physics professor Elisa Robledo is horrified when she learns that her former team members have been brutally murdered by a mysterious dark force that is now targeting Elisa. Reprint.
While studying advanced physics at a prestigious European university, Elisa Robledo was invited to join a select research team on a secret project to manipulate String Theory. It was the opportunity of a lifetime for the eager young scientist—the chance to actually view monumental events from the far distant past: dinosaurs roaming the Earth, life during the Stone Age, the crucifixion of Christ. But on a remote island in the Indian Ocean, the team's experiments went horribly awry . . . and something terrible was awakened.
Now, years later, Elisa's former colleagues are dying, one by one. The nightmare they created by meddling with Time is taking a shocking and gruesome toll. And only by uncovering the sinister truth behind the science can Elisa hope to survive the dark, devouring forces that mean to destroy her and the world she knows.
Like a Spanish Michael Crichton, Jose Carlos Somoza takes intriguing science-fiction premises and uses them to generate horror and thrills. In ZIG ZAG a physicist develops a method to use quantum mechanics to view into the past but soon the people associated with the project begin to die horrible deaths in the present.
