Publisher's Summary

In Australia... a U.S. Air Force computer operator receives a terrifying radio transmission out of Ayers Rock that knocks out the world's communications.
In New Mexico... a boozy college engineering professor is suddenly escorted into a waiting car by two armed military men.
In New York... a tall, slender woman leaves her husband a note on the refrigerator saying that she's leaving - but can't tell him where she's going.
In Colombia... a Special Forces officer breaks into a drug kinpin's bedroom and puts a bullet into a woman's brain before running to a waiting helicopter.
And in England... a beautiful 23-year-old mathematician prepares for a journey that will change her life forever.
The team assembles in Australia on a mission that can save the world. But first, they must figure out who is the message coming from? What are they trying to tell mankind? And can it be deciphered in time before Armageddon overtakes the world?
It's about a bomb, it's about a world about to be shattered. It's about the last few days they have to save us all.

Disappointing

I am not a big fan of science fiction, but nevertheless I did not find this a convincing story. I was also disappointed by the robotic nature of the narrators voice.
