It's said that God is infinite, and everywhere. But what if He isn't? What if it were possible to fly so far out into space that you arrive at a place where God does not exist? How would you know it? What would happen?

These questions arise when nearly three dozen astronauts and observers embark on the most daring voyage of exploration in all of human history, a space flight designed to probe the very limits of our universe. Among those on board is a scientist who also wears a priest's collar-Father Cameron Teal, director of the Vatican Observatory, recruited for the mission by an iconic industrialist who secretly hopes to find God. After the N.A.U.S. Santa Maria crosses an unimaginable distance, bizarre, unexplainable, and profoundly frightening events start to unfold. As the chaos increases and terror grips the crew, Father Teal begins to wonder whether, in the quest to find God, he's actually lost Him.

"This novel delivers. Carr's writing pulls the reader into the story, willingly or not. The images form as the suspense builds. Be careful of the dark."
-Dr. Steve B. Howell
Project Scientist, NASA's Kepler mission and author of A Kepler's Dozen
