“In a blink, Max felt his car moving toward the light . . . He pounded on the windows and screamed, ‘Let me out!’ to a silent audience he envisioned watching him. He was terrified the wall of light would either crush him or incinerate him. Then his car went through the light in a surreal moment that left Max breathless and clutching the air. Recovering from the experience, he stared forward, transfixed on only his thoughts. He gasped for air and found himself still alive.”
Maxwell Fairmont was a no-nonsense man, in that he didn’t believe in miracles, ghosts, apparitions, or alien beings on our planet, until one fateful night when he got lost in a California desert and stumbled upon Doc. That event propelled him into an incredible adventure, the likes of which had not been experienced by any human before. The encounter also gave him an alternate view of the universe he had not previously considered.
Reader of good novels.
Excellent adventure intermingled with some hard science, which is mostly contained in four chapters that the author notes can be bypassed without missing any part of the action - "...if science is not your cup of tea."
