Worlds apart, literally and figuratively, Douglas Preston’s Impact explores the devastation of global catastrophe originating from the Red Planet. What seems like a run of the mill meteor entering Earth’s orbit that crashes into the sleepy fishing village off of Maine has a devastating impact in the jungles of Cambodia. Wyman Ford, ex-CIA, is called in to find the mining camp deep in the jungle and the source of a new mineral found on Earth’s surface that has a radioactive nature not known to man. Little does Ford realize is, that the Rebels soldiers are the least of his worries.
Back in Maine, Abbey and Jackie, two young women with dreams of fortune, set out to find the meteor and hopefully score a one way ticket out of a mundane life. What they didn’t expect was to be caught up in a game of espionage and murder as they team up with Ford to try to save the planet from global extinction and an ancient alien technology threatening an unimaginable war of worlds.
A definite purchase new! A great afternoon read that will leave you wanting more. The New York Times bestselling author Douglas Preston explores the possibility that we are, and never were, alone in the universe.
