John Preston sets aside the easy bullet that would end his certain, lingering death. He now Knows too much. His mind has just returned from a wild ride tens of thousands of years into the past, where he witnessed three primitive humans divining a path to save humankind from a fiery global catastrophe. What John now Knows might cure him but could also require that he shred the very fabric of time and space.
John’s quest for answers thrusts him into the lead role to confront the Consortium, a cabal of eight families with the power to Know the future and the past. Guided by John’s latent Know ability and a seventy-thousand-year-old prophecy, he sets out on a path for his own salvation. Success will mean life. Failure…a cruel doom for all humankind.
Preservation is the first book in the Know Trilogy, which wraps a new theory of space-time, humankind’s evolution, millennia-old conspiracies, and imminent global destruction around a broken man’s redemption, an evil man’s reckoning, and a driven woman’s unique destiny.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Reading this mega-intelligent, earth rattling, human imperfections, adventure demonstrates how a truly gifted author can engulf the reader in advanced quantum physics in an exciting and accessible manner. A lesser writer would have lost his audience but for the pure imagination of this fascinating story built on science, action, mayhem and hominid (!) drama. Zinging back and forth in time on strings more tenuous than rubber bands, this story jump starts all manner of possibilities for mankind’s abilities, past and future, while keeping the reader grounded and fascinated. Only those in the “Know” are coming to realize just how far-reaching and desperate every action can affect the possible destruction of earth, each vary in abilities and quickly become so much more than one dimensional characters. People are flawed, evil is personified by one of the most insidiously Bondesque villains ever and the fear – is - real.
