(From the publisher):
Impending personal tragedy is dimming the brilliant light of Dr. Benjamin Knowlton's world. On the threshold of their greatest achievement, the renowned astrophysicist's beloved wife and partner -- ex-astronaut-turned-astronomer Channing -- is dying.
But something looms alarmingly on the far edge of the solar system: at once a scientific find of unparalleled importance that could ensure the Knowltons' immortality, and a potentially earth-shattering cataclysm that dwarfs their private one. For Benjamin and Channing have discovered "Eater," an eons-old black hole anomaly that devours stars and worlds. Yet its most awesome and devastating secrets are still to be revealed... and feared.
Eater is intelligent. And eager to communicate.
Eater is curious ... and hungry.
Eater is rapidly heading our way...
