“The end of the world started quietly enough for Tane Williams and Rebecca Richards. . . .”

Tane and Rebecca aren’t sure what to make of it—a sequence of 1s and 0s, the message looks like nothing more than a random collection of alternating digits. Working to decode it, however, they discover that the message contains lottery numbers . . . lottery numbers that win the next random draw! More messages follow, and slowly it becomes clear—the messages are being sent from Tane and Rebecca’s future. Something there has gone horribly wrong, and it’s up to them to prevent it from happening. The very survival of the human race may be at stake!

“[A] terrifying SF page-turner!”—Booklist

“A tautly constructed plot. Fast-paced and all-too-realistic. This technothriller offers gearhead ecowarriors everything, including a hugely satisfying ending.”—Kirkus Reviews

It would take them two days to cruise up to the Bay of Islands in the Möbius. That second night, they would sneak onto the island, break into the lab using the passcode, and look around for…for what?

It was hard to think creatively when you had a splitting headache, and he had one now. He hadn’t slept much the previous night but had lain awake worried about breaking into the lab. That was against the law. It was a criminal act. He had never broken the law before (unless you counted that packet of gum he had “borrowed” from the corner store when he was

nothing much to look at. Just the occasional school of fish or curious shark. Ahead at Poor Knights Islands there was a world-famous diving spot, renowned for its clear waters, colorful marine life, and the wreck of the Rainbow Warrior. But that was a bit off course for them, so he had to be content with the blue-green infinity of the open water. Think outside the box. It was a well-worn phrase from an old puzzle that he had once seen. Nine dots that formed a three-by-three grid. Join all the

Really suits you.” She smiled at Fatboy, which annoyed Tane more than a little. She had known Fatboy almost as long as he had, and she was the last person he would have expected to be taken in by the whole dreadlocks, leather jacket, rock-star-in-the-making persona. And now that Fatboy had a face tattoo, he

not try leaving the city. Civil defense managers assured reporters that special teams of experts had already been brought in from overseas to deal with the problem. Rebecca had been drinking some water, but her glass shattered suddenly on the floor. Her face was white. “Rebecca?” She turned and ran outside onto the patio. Tane ran after her.
