(From the publisher):
Albert Einstein referred to it as the Unified Field Theory. It was his obsession, more important than Relativity and more difficult to prove. But on August 2, 1945, he did just that. Days later, the bombs dropped. Einstein knew what would happen if his Unified Field Theory was combined with his Theory of Relativity -- and the consequences were too horrifying to contemplate. In despair, the physicist decided that the Unified Field Theory must never be shared. He would carry this secret to the grave. And for half a century, the devastating truth remained buried.
Sometimes John Taft wished the world was as simple as it had been in the 1940s. Yet the last days of the millennium proved to be a very different place. Allegiances changed daily, and an antiterrorist operative like Taft had to do everything he could to keep his sights on the correct targets. Even if he was one of the best.
But nothing has prepared Taft for his next assignment. While unnatural disasters threaten the world's oil supplies and the Middle East teeters on the brink of war, the Chinese have made a chilling discovery. Somehow, they have unearthed the dormant formula devised by the 20th century's most brilliant mind. On the eve of the People's Republic's 50th anniversary, the imperialistic nation is on the threshold of unraveling the mystery of Einstein's fabled Unified Field Theory, and will soon possess a weapon more devastating than any nuclear arsenal. And unless something is done very soon, what's left of the United States will be on the bottom rung of a new world order.
