Sinopsis

STEP INTO THE FOLD." " IT S PERFECTLY SAFE. " The folks in Mike Erikson's small New England town would say he's just your average, everyday guy. And that's exactly how Mike likes it. Sure, the life he's chosen isn t much of a challenge to someone with his unique gifts, but he s content with his quiet and peaceful existence. That is, until an old friend presents him with an irresistible mystery, one that Mike is uniquely qualified to solve: far out in the California desert, a team of DARPA scientists has invented a device they affectionately call the Albuquerque Door. Using a cryptic computer equation and magnetic fields to fold dimensions, it shrinks distances so that a traveler can travel hundreds of feet with a single step. The invention promises to make mankind s dreams of teleportation a reality. And, the scientists insist, traveling through the Door is completely safe. Yet evidence is mounting that this miraculous machine isn t quite what it seems and that its creators are harboring a dangerous secret. As his investigations draw him deeper into the puzzle, Mike begins to fear there s only one answer that makes sense. And if he s right, it may only be a matter of time before the project destroys everything. A cunningly inventive mystery featuring a hero worthy of Sherlock Holmes and a terrifying final twist you ll never see coming, " The Fold" is that rarest of things: a genuinely page-turning science-fiction thriller. Step inside its pages and learn why author Peter Clines has already won legions of loyal fans. "From the Hardcover edition.""
