About Blasphemy:

In Douglas Preston’s Blasphemy, the world’s biggest supercollider, locked in an Arizona mountain, was built to reveal the secrets of the very moment of creation: the Big Bang itself.

The Torus is the most expensive machine ever created by humankind, run by the world’s most powerful supercomputer. It is the brainchild of Nobel Laureate William North Hazelius. Will the Torus divulge the mysteries of the creation of the universe? Or will it, as some predict, suck the earth into a mini black hole? Or is the Torus a Satanic attempt, as a powerful televangelist decries, to challenge God Almighty on the very throne of Heaven?

Twelve scientists under the leadership of Hazelius are sent to the remote mountain to turn it on, and what they discover must be hidden from the world at all costs. Wyman Ford, ex-monk and CIA operative, is tapped to wrest their secret, a secret that will either destroy the world…or save it.

The countdown begins…

“Listeners are in exceedingly capable hands – Sowers never lets us down. He weaves together the complex subplots of what happens when science and religion collide.” —AudioFile

“When a talented reader narrates a spellbinding story by a consistently powerful author, great things happen in the audio world. Scott Sowers nails the suspense of Preston’s latest novel; listeners will be grabbed from the very first line of this ‘ripped from the headlines’ story of science and religion clashing, with tragic results…Preston never fails to deliver a first-rate thriller, and with Sowers providing the outstanding narrative, listeners are in for a non-stop – and thought-provoking audio experience.” —Library Journal, starred review

“Preston’s exhilarating and and absorbing science-based effort will thrill readers from the first page to the last. Michael Crichton wishes he could write half as well.” —Library Journal on Tyrannosaur Canyon

“If John Grisham had written Jurassic Park, he couldn’t do better than Tyrannosaur Canyon.” —Stephen Coonts on Tyrannosaur Canyon

“Grandly entertaining…Intelligently told and never less than fun.” —The Washington Post on Tyrannosaur Canyon

“Scott Sowers’s superb use of accents and inflections allows this archaeological thriller, a sort of Mexican Jurassic Park, to flow smoothly and blend a diverse collection of details…Sowers’s narration of a dry and ironic pathologist talking to a local policeman as if she were talking to an idiot is masterful. The descriptions of T. Rex, which begin each new section, are compelling and awe-inspiring.” —AudioFile on Tyrannosaur Canyon
