THE CODE BURIED IN A CENTURIES-OLD MANUSCRIPT...
From a remote Scottish mountain, Dr. Oliver Webb-one of the world's great physicists--is whisked away by a military helicopter and routed to the Mexican border. Along with the leading men of physics and one sexy atom smasher. Webb is given an impossible task: identify the asteroid--codename Nemesis--that is on course to collide with and destory America. They have five days to stop it. If they can't, the President will strike by ordering the U.S. military to pull the nuclear trigger...
IS THE ONLY SALVATION...
But when one of Webb's colleagues is found dead, he has every reason to suspect that there is more to Nemesis than he knows. Then, he makes a staggering discovery: the secret to saving the world is hidden in a 17th-century Latin manuscript that has gone mysteriously missing.
FOR THE SURVIVAL OF THE UNITED STATES
