Overview

American and European scientists have been building bigger and faster particle accelerators to smash atoms into smaller pieces. They are looking for the Higgs boson, the particle that gives matter mass, The God Particle. What if they find it?

Fermilabs and CERN are the biggest players in this race for the Higgs boson, named after Peter Higgs who first proposed its existence in1964 as a way to explain why atoms act the way they do. Since then, tens of billions of dollars have been spent to prove the Higgs exists, but to this day it remains elusive.

However, in California, there's a much smaller lab with an equally determined group of scientists in the hunt for the Higgs. Their motivations are as varied as the characters themselves. Whether love, money, power, or revenge drives them, they have set the world on a course of utter destruction.

This is their story.

Editorial Reviews

James Halon
The Russian's fear The 13th Power, but for the Americans there is unlimited wealth to be had through its ultimate control. The evils enter... government lies and spies. Who is The Ark? Mixed motives abound: greed, love, and revenge flourish through the pages. Terry Wright gives us action, adventure, beautiful women, life and death -- and above all -- believability! "The 13th Power" is brilliant, masterful, and most of all -- entertaining.
