Description

When the smallest imagined particle of matter threatens to destroy all that matters, science and religion collide on the world stage and within the corridors of power. Presidential Science Advisor William Wild Bill" Hiccock and his top-secret Quarterback Operations Group (QUOG) has already faced down some of the most sinister high-tech rivals imaginable. Now they must face one that can eliminate all life on Earth in an instant.THE GOD PARTICLE is a super-kinetic thriller that pits brains, religion, political power, and common humanity against the onslaught of extremely dangerous, narrowly focused scientific exploration into the fabric of creation, complete with a plot to shoot down one of the President's helicopters. Fringe religious groups - but not the usual suspects - engage in terror. Ugly espionage is set against the beauty of the Cote D'Azur. The romance of Paris offsets the grit of Boston's South of Roxbury while the Euro-pop discos of Switzerland punctuate the quest.In the end it comes down to one question: Can former FBI agent Brooke Burrell, now QUOG's lead operative, choose between her personal and professional life in time to solve the puzzle and stop it all?

Review quote

Praise for Tom Avitabile: "Frighteningly realistic. Most of Washington really works this way. Homeland Security had better read this one and take corrective action." -- U.S. Ambassador Michael Skol on THE EIGHTH DAY "Awesome. I could not go to sleep last night because I couldn't put it down!" -- Donna Hanover, WOR Radio 710 on THE EIGHTH DAY "THE HAMMER OF GOD is a tightly plotted, fear-filled and all-too-realistic thriller that is finely written, in fact the best this reviewer has read in a long time. It should be a best seller and will make the reader anxiously awaiting the third and final novel in this thriller trilogy! Great job, Tom Avitabile!" -- Crystal Book Reviews "Well done and insuring that the reader will grab book three as soon as available." -- Bookbitch on THE HAMMER OF GOD
