|Plot Summary of Singularity|
Per Aspera Press, Nov 2004, 25.95, 512 pp.
In 1908 Tunguska, a remote part of Siberia, a black hole star the size of an atom with the weight of a billion tons crashes onto the earth, but instead of making a gaping hole in the planet, it lands intact. Dr. Jack Adler investigates the internal orbiting star and concludes that life is in danger from the celestial object. Someone else obviously knows that too because someone attempts to murder Jack and his team
CROM Agent Marianne Bonaventure drafts Jonathan Knox to help her prove that Russian billionaire Arkedy Gristin is dealing with weapons of mass destruction. They wrangle an invitation onto the Russian's yacht, but fail to find evidence of WMD activities; instead they learn that Arkedy is working on a secret project involving the black hole. Their discovery of Arkedy's activities proves dangerous, forcing the duo to flee for their lives in order to regroup and try to figure out a way to stop the Russian from exploiting the star.
