Synopsis: In a world where the Information Age is moving at breakneck speed, breakthroughs in areas of science that were once fodder for science fiction are now becoming a part of our everyday life.
A group of graduate students from Massachusetts Institute of Technology have stolen a breakthrough in opening and stabilizing Einstein-Rosen Bridges, or wormholes, as they are commonly known, that allows them to transport people from one location to another. Their goal is to assassinate any powerful politician and executive controlling the world's banking system that would use this technology for their own greedy gain rather than the advancement of mankind.
Meanwhile, in south Orange County, California, young Chase Manhattan, part of a new breed of modern-day discovery seekers, seeks to leave behind his life of danger and adventure and settle down as an associate professor of physics at UC-Irvine in Orange County. He also desires to build a relationship with the beautiful girl he has not seen since high school.
But within days, he uncovers the diabolical scheme on the other side of the country and finds himself the one person who can prevent more murders from happening and ultimately destroy the technology. However, once the MIT group realizes Chase and his friends have the ability and motivation to not only take the breakthrough technology from them, but also thwart more killings, Chase soon finds himself in their crosshairs, the latest target on their list of assassinations.
As the death toll mounts, Chase and his friends must battle this group of ambitious graduate students from MIT on both coasts and in cyberspace in a race to control or destroy this breakthrough that threatens to drastically change life as we know it.
From the Author:
Stephen Tremp, author of the BREAKTHROUGH series, is a suspense thriller writer. Stephen has a B.A. in information systems and an MBA degree in global management. He is currently completing his doctorate in business administration. Stephen has a background in information systems, management and finance and draws from this varied and complex experiential knowledge to write one-of-a-kind thrillers.
His novels are enhanced by current events at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and other scientific research facilities around the world. Theoretical physicists are searching for evidence of a wide spectrum of potential discoveries that were once considered fodder for science fiction, including: parallel universes and higher dimensions of space, dark energy, dark matter, anti-matter, and the Higgs boson particle--The God Particle--among other exciting concepts. These potential advances have the ability to change the way we perceive our universe and our place in it!
Stephen is also developing an animated children's series featuring a brother and sister who have a unique way of exploring their world--using a wormhole--in order to finish school projects for science, history, and social studies.
A writer with a philanthropic heart, Stephen donates money from proceeds of BREAKTHROUGH to worthy charitable organizations, including the Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and the Orange County Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
