Description

2012 came and went. The world prepared itself for impending disaster--and nothing happened. Or so it seemed. But by 2020, energy from a supernova is disrupting the sun. Solar storms ravage the globe with unprecedented ferocity, and debris in the form of comets and asteroids threaten to end life on earth. The wealthy of the world hide in vast underground bunkers, but even they know that they cannot survive without a miracle. It all comes down to one man--a young psychiatrist named David Ford--who may hold the power to save the world. Newly employed at the extravagant Acton Clinic, Ford encounters people who seem to understand what's happening... some may even possess an extraordinary knowledge of what's to come. One of them is the beautiful and enigmatic Caroline Light, who demands more from Ford than he could possibly give... another is cunning ex-CIA operative Mack Graham, a skilled killer with questionable loyalties...December 21, 2012 was not the end. The end is "The Omega Point" where time stops.

Review quote

"What comes after the end of the world? Whitley Strieber wraps mind-bending principles inside an apocalyptic mystery. The story is one of both disaster and hope."
--Larry Bond, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Cold Choices""A mind-bending, truth-telling, high-powered novel that is just impossible to stop reading. It's got everything: sweep, scale, history, high stakes and immense ideas. One of the best thrillers about the end of the world I've ever read."
--Douglas Preston, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Impact""Whitley Strieber's new novel "Midnight "is nothing less than a certifiable pager turner. As I was reading it I kept seeing the story unfolding on the big screen, just like "The Day After Tomorrow". The threat of a nuclear strike against the U.S. is very real and very chilling, as are the kinds of people Strieber has conjured up in this really excellent yarn."--David Hagberg, "USA Today" bestselling author of "Dance with the Dragon""" "Engrossing . . . A first rate exercise in literary paranoia."
--"Publishers Weekly" on" The Grays"

"Immensely entertaining."--"Booklist" on "2012: The War for Souls" "Wildly entertaining. Fans of apocalyptic page-turners like King's "The Stand" and Niven and Pournelle's "Lucifer's Hammer "will enjoy this ambitious - and audacious - tale."--"People" on "The Grays"
