The BABEL Project
by Hugh Vest
"EINSTEIN WAS WRONG" "PARTICLE BREAKS SPEED OF LIGHT"--Headlines are erupting daily charting scientific breakthroughs in Europe/CERN’s vast new particle research facility while America sits idly by on the sidelines. But what if America was ready to boldly take the lead in its own top secret lab a thousand times more powerful?
Now the U.S. is set to propel itself into scientific world dominance and a new understanding of the universe with its highly classified underground facility called BABEL. Years ago America planted the first flag on the moon, now it would bury the first flag of this new frontier deep within its own hills.
BABEL's creator, Dr. Mercer Collin, and his team of misfit geniuses have tirelessly prepared for its first historic experiment. Something, though, has gone terribly wrong. During final preparations, BABEL's lead scientist covertly runs the experiment himself. He then mysteriously dies just after locking the data in the project's supercomputers with an unknown password.
The driven Mercer Collin uncovers the sabotage and seeks to steal the encased treasures of the experiment for himself. An unlikely Dr. Neil Hendrix, BABEL's new lead scientist, stumbles both upon his friend’s secret experiment and Mercer's suspicious desires.
Suspecting his friend sought to protect the data from Mercer's ambitions, Neil departs BABEL's lair on a last ditch mission of his own to pry the dead scientist's password from the mind of his estranged daughter, Anna, and to secure the data from Mercer. Mercer's relentless agent, ex-Navy SEAL "Snake" Blake, is sent to hunt Neil and he quickly picks up the pursuit. Battling the demons of his past, will Neil's path of discovery with the beautiful Anna unlock more than the key's to BABEL's kingdom? The BABEL Project is a race to the very last page with the fate of science and the knowledge of creation hanging in the balance.
