A MYSTERY THAT COULD TOPPLE THE LAWS OF PHYSICS. A TECHNOLOGY SO POWERFUL IT COULD BRING INSTANT WORLD DOMINATION. Studying samples from a 65-million-year-old clay layer deposited during the extinction that killed the dinosaurs, geologist Gregory Neale discovers an unremarkable appearing crystal. Assigned to identify it, his graduate student Christine Shelburne, hungering for more than a professional relationship with Greg, discovers that, although not radioactive, the object somehow generates heat, apparently limitless and endless heat, source unknown and completely mysterious.
Greg and Christine subject the object to increasingly sophisticated tests, but succeed in only lengthening its list of properties impossible under known laws of physics. Refusing to accept his colleagues' verdict that the object is of extraterrestrial manufacture, Greg insists on enlisting the help of a state-of-the-art National Laboratory. This work accidently triggers an even more baffling property of the crystal, an ability to shift time. Finally convinced, Greg prepares to announce the discovery to the world, but his delay forces him to battle a charismatic televangelist convinced Satan created the crystal to destroy religious faith and MADCAT, a shadowy government agency determined to control the crystal's unfathomable power.
