The Omega Point is the story of a heroic FBI agent, a twisted assassin, and a beautiful NASA astronaut, each pursuing love in a world full of sex, danger, and—brain candy! Emergence, quantum mechanics, neuroscience, the Singularity, and other topics ripped from today’s science headlines infuse the action with a deep fascination of our rapidly changing world. A rogue division of the NSA creates a new social technology. But even their lead scientist does not realize what they’ve released into the world… When an MIT professor is murdered, FBI Agent Rex Sheppard teams up with a beautiful FBI analyst to hunt down the killer. The pursuit leads him to love, but also sends him on a journey that will take him off the planet, and even out of his own mind. NASA astronaut Diane Morgan has so focused her life on her work that she's living in a near state of grace, until she meets a powerfully sexual man who seems to want nothing more than to entertain and excite her. What she doesn't know is that all that charm and good breeding was stapled to his face by the CIA, and that he is about to involve her in a monstrous plot to destroy the US government. A plot that hinges on her first flight into space... A thriller with a satiric edge, savvy, very funny—and deeply disturbing.
