Three book editors, jaded by reading far too many crackpot manuscripts on the mystic and the occult, are inspired by an extraordinary conspiracy story told to them by a strange colonel to have some fun. They start feeding random bits of information into a powerful computer capable of inventing connections between the entries, thinking they are creating nothing more than an amusing game, but then their game starts to take over, the deaths start mounting, and they are forced into a frantic search for the truth.

From the Publisher:

If you love mind gaems, intricate puzzles, the curiousities of history, and strange imaginings, you'll be fascinated by FOUCAULT'S PENDULUM, an elaborate maze of a book by the author of the huge bestseller THE NAME OF THE ROSE.
There are demonstraton models of Foucault's Pendulum in science museums across the United States and in Europe - my favorite is at the Musee des Arts et Metiers in Paris - a museum of technology and human endeavor lodged in an ancient clerical building - it's a fabulous combination of the practical and the metaphysical.
Teri Henry, Director, Subsidiary Rights
