by Douglas Preston - available in hardcover
I resisted buying this book because I'm not a big fan of science fiction, but my local bookseller at Mendham Books thought I'd enjoy it. I'm glad I took his advice.
IMPACT was really good! Part sci-fi and part mystery, former CIA Agent Wyman Ford is on the same search as amateur astronomer Abbey Straw; to find out where in Maine a meteor has landed and how it ties into radioactive gems being mined in Cambodia. Coming at the problem from different angles, it's when they join forces that things start to heat up. A race to the end, you won't be sorry you bought this book.
