Think of the greatest possible scientific discovery ... they made one even greater. The world's biggest supercollider, hidden in an Arizona mountain, was built to unlock the secrets of the very moment of creation: the Big Bang itself.

Isabella is the most expensive machine ever created by humankind, run by the world's most powerful supercomputer. It is the brainchild of Nobel Laureate William North Hazelius. Will Isabella divulge the mysteries of the creation of the universe? Or will it, as some predict, suck the earth into a mini black hole? Or is Isabella a Satanic attempt, as a powerful televangelist decries, to challenge God Almighty on the very throne of heaven?

Twelve scientists are sent to the remote mountain to turn it on ... and what they discover must be hidden from the world at all costs.

Wyman Ford, ex-monk and CIA operative, is tapped to wrest from the team their secret, a secret that will either destroy the world ... or save it. The countdown to midnight begins ...
