Col. Jack Collins and the Event group explode onto the page in Golemon's highest-octane novel yet. NASA is shocked to uncover billion-year-old skeletal remains on the moon. When the devastating news is leaked, nations are thrown into a head-long collision as the flames of fundamentalism threaten to engulf the world. The Event Group is tasked to unravel the mystery and to offer something that can either explain our ancient visitor or, at least, keep the planet from descending into chaos. Collins leads a team of the world's greatest scientists and philosophers on a journey that will take them to the airless world of space. But while a battle rages over our heritage, the Event Group realizes that this may not be humanity's war alone. Could something else - someone else - be coming to finish a war that they started a billion years ago?
Praise for “Event: ”
Praise for the novels of David L. Golemon
Praise for“ Primeval: ”
“Golemon knows how to make readers turn the pages, and ”Primeval“ will only further enhance his reputation.” —“Booklist”
Praise for“ Ancients: ”
“Golemon's third novel in the Event Group series proves to be his best yet....a mix of the James Rollins action-heavy adventure, the military gadgetry of Tom Clancy, the pacing of the television series ”24“, and the conspiracy theories devoured by fans of the radio show Coast to Coast AM.” “-Booklist”
Praise for “Legend: ”
“Golemon can write action sequences with the best of them, and he lands a solid uppercut with this book. The depth of the science fiction lies under the surface for the most of the work, but is surprising and ingenious none the less.” —SFSignal.com
Praise for “Event: ”
“A promising debut sure to satisfy fans of ”The X-Files . . . “the plotting and hair's-breadth escapes evoke some of the early work of Preston and Child, and the author's premise offers a rich lode of materials for inevitable sequels.” "—Publishers Weekly"
"“A flat-out adrenaline rush.” "—New York Times" bestselling authors Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens
David L. Golemon is the author of the Event Group Thrillers, including “Event,” “Ancients,” “Leviathan” and “Primeval.” “Legend,” the second book in the series, was nominated for a RITA award for paranormal fiction. Golemon learned an early love of reading from his father, who told him that the written word, unlike other forms, allows readers to use their own minds, the greatest special effects machines of all—an idea Golemon still believes. The only thing he loves more than writing is research, especially historical research, and he sees the subtext of his Event novels as being that understanding history allows us to create a better future. Golemon grew up in Chino, California, and now makes his home in New York.
