A mystical tale of conflict between a man's heart and his conscience at the birth of the Atomic Age.

Despondent over a great personal loss, geologist John Bowen wanders the deserts of the American Southwest. When he is recruited to work on the Manhattan Project during World War II, he finds himself faced with a moral decision that could end his life. He must decide where his greatest obligation lies; with those closest to him, or with the entire human family.

Eliot's Rock is a sweeping tale that takes the reader from the deserts of New Mexico to the lonely white expanses of Antarctica, and ultimately to wartime Japan. This is a story of love, loss, terror, betrayal, and eventual reunion. It is an exploration of a lost culture, and an examination of what must be a man's final responsibility.
