Wyman Ford is tapped for a secret expedition to Cambodia... to locate the source of strangely beautiful gemstones that do not appear to be of this world.

A brilliant meteor lights up the Maine coast... and two young women borrow a boat and set out for a distant island to find the impact crater.

A scientist at the National Propulsion Facility discovers an inexplicable source of gamma rays in the outer Solar System. He is found decapitated, the data missing.

High resolution NASA images reveal an unnatural feature hidden in the depths of a crater on Mars... and it appears to have been activated.

Sixty hours and counting.

    Douglas Preston presents a story that could very well be another variation of "The Day the Earth Stood Still". This is extremely interesting since he has created an alien threat without any actual aliens showing up. The story reads fast and the characters intriguing enough to keep your interest as your curiosity makes you turn the page to find out what happens to them next. An original tale that will keep you fascinated from page one until that last (wish there were more pages) written word.

    Be', devo dire che ce l'ha fatta, e molto bene direi! La lettura scorre veloce, difficile staccarsi dalle pagine del libro.

    En realidad le pondría 3 estrellas y media.Puede que sea el de más ciencia ficción de los que ha escrito hasta ahora, a la vez que tiene mucha acción. El final se precipita un poco demasiado a mi modo de ver.

    Impacto (Douglas Preston)

    Una novela adictiva de principio a fin , que hace que te introduzcas en la história y no puedas levantar la cabeza hasta terminarla...
    Quizás es la más "fántastica" de las que ha publicado en solitario , pero al final lo que cuenta es lo que entretie ...(continue)
