Maxwell Draper, a physicist, receives foreboding radio transmissions from a deep space satellite caught in the boundless expanse of a black hole – prophetic messages of harmful national events yet to occur.
Nelson Quip, his friend from college days, is also witnessing harmful transformations in his hometown of Laslo, Maine – a development that will cause the extinction of a forest and its wildlife.
This provocative, contemporary story is based upon actual national events, unheeded warnings about failing policies, and the associated indifference to inaction. What will happen if we remain unaware of a changing world around us and inadvertently ignore the troubling events that surround us on a daily basis? The answer is contained in this story – an outcome that only you can decide.
