Nomad

Something massive is coming...
And it's heading for Earth.


That's what Dr. Ben Rollins, head of Harvard's exoplanet research team, is told by NASA after being dragged out of bed in the middle of the night. His first instinct is to call his daughter, Jessica, who's vacationing in Italy with his wife. "Something is coming," he tells them, "a hundred times the mass of the sun. We can't see it, don't know what it is, but it's there. NASA's calling it Nomad, and in just months, the Earth may be destroyed."

"Set firmly in the realm of God-I-hope-not science fiction, Mather grounds his story in hard facts, weaving a tale that is all too plausible, gritty and realistic." - Peter Cawdron, author of Anomaly

But what is it? And how did they miss detecting it until now? In a frantic race against time, Dr. Rollins must unravel Nomad's secrets. A mysterious clue surfaces in his old research papers from the end of the Cold War, more than thirty years earlier... 

The world erupts into chaos as the end approaches--and Ben discovers that his wife and daughter are trapped in Europe. The key to humanity's survival rests in the final answers Dr. Rollins pieces together, in the midst of his desperate scramble across continents to find his family before Nomad swallows the planet.

MORE ABOUT NOMAD

A story of family, redemption, love and hope set amid a brand new category of cataclysm--all the more plausible and terrifying as the science behind it is vetted by a team of world-class astrophysicists from CERN, SETI, the Keck Observatory and more. It even has its own simulation video, included at the end of the book.

"An instant classic of the apocalyptic genre, a petrifyingly wild ride." - A.C. Hadfield, bestselling author of The Atlantis Ship.
