Something massive is coming... And it's heading for Earth.That's what astronomer Ben Rollins is told by NASA after being dragged out of bed in the middle of the night. His first instinct is to call his daughter, Jessica, who's vacationing in Italy with his wife. "Something is coming," he tells them, "a hundred times bigger than the sun. We can't see it, don't know what it is yet, but they're calling it Nomad--and in just months, the Earth may be destroyed.""Compelling science, gut-wrenching adventure, and a truly original premise. The disaster thriller we've all been waiting for." - Nicholas Sansbury Smith, author of the Extinction Horizon series.But what is it? And how did they miss detecting it until now? In a frantic race against time, Dr. Rollins must unravel Nomad's secrets. A mysterious clue surfaces in his old Cold War-era research papers, from more than thirty years earlier... The world erupts into chaos as the end approaches--and Ben discovers his wife and daughter are trapped in Europe. The key to humanity's survival rests in the final answers he pieces together, in the midst of his desperate scramble across continents to find his family before Nomad swallows the planet.MORE FROM THE BACK COVERA story of family and redemption set amid a brand new category of cataclysm--all the more plausible and terrifying as the science behind it is vetted by a team of world-class astrophysicists from CERN, SETI, the Keck Observatory and more. It even has its own simulation video, included at the end of the book.Nomad comes from the mind of award-winning, Amazon Best-Seller Matthew Mather, whose books have sold a half million copies and been translated into sixteen languages, with 20th Century Fox developing one of his latest novels, CyberStorm, for film.
