Tom Calvano is a freelance project manager with a reputation for getting results for corporations and governments. But he's never been up against a challenge like this. From the depths of space a deadly stellar-mass anomaly is hurtling toward Earth, threatening all of mankind with extinction. The Guardian, an ancient alien being who has watched over humanity for eons, has informed the U.S President and other world leaders of the threat. When they choose secrecy and denial, Tom convinces The Guardian to join forces with the Star-Slayer Team, an eclectic group dedicated to saving the planet. A geophysicist, George Blocker, independently recognizes the threat to humanity after the earthquake that touched off the Asian tsunami caused a shift in the axial tilt of the Earth. But what could have caused such a powerful earthquake and its unusual tectonic activity? He and a few colleagues, fearing global panic, begin meeting in secrecy to confirm their calculations. But the group's activities are uncovered by a powerful, mysterious international agent provocateur who makes the Star-Slayer Team an offer they can't refuse. The team's leader is Jon Walmer, a brilliant scientist and inventor of an incredible computer named Aieda who thinks she's female. Walmer enlists the help of the President to use the manned mission to Mars as a cover for funneling billions of dollars to their black-ops project. When the Star-Slayer Team finally comes up with a solution, it's a highly improbable one. It's based on Aieda's formulation of a new theory governing gravity and space-time that, hopefully, will give the team just one chance to prevent global disaster. Although there's no way to test the theory, it's the only alternative. The team has only seven years to develop the mechanism and hit the launch button before the anomaly consumes the Earth.
