Dr. Mark Turner is a scientist with a double PhD in Oceanographic Seismology and Physics. While doing routine research on the anomalous occurrences frequently reported in the Bermuda Triangle, he will soon discover that someone is trying to kill him. When he learns that factions within the United States government are involved in the assassination attempts, his research will take on an entirely new meaning.
Getting more than he bargained for, his discoveries will take him in different directions and unveil information, which he would never have believed to be possible. His search for the truth will not only explain the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle, the lost city of Atlantis, and the significance of the Mayan December 2012 end date, but also lead him to love. However, only time will tell if she is truly an ally, or the enemy.
Deep below the Mississippi Valley at the earth’s core, an even larger eddy spit out an electromagnetic discharge. It traveled up through the channel between the highly magnetic, indigenous rock formations of the Reelfoot Rift, setting off a shock-wave larger than the magnitude-eight earthquake of 1812, whose power shook against the solid bedrock of the United States all the way to the east coast. Blasts of sand blew in violent out-gassing, like mud volcanoes. It created an instant dam on the Mississippi River causing it to run backwards before overflowing its banks. The electromagnetic power surge passed through the atmosphere and out into space where it collided with the magnetic field of the incoming coronal mass. The resulting magnetic reconnection was so strong that it created an electromagnetic pulse high above the atmosphere. Pushing down on the magnetosphere, it traveled south towards the equator convulsing through land, air and sea, followed quickly by the mass of plasma itself.
Starvation and disease were becoming the norm. Violence and chaos reigned in the ruined cities while flies feasted upon the unburied dead. Across the world, disease, death, and sorrow plagued the planet. Earthquakes shook the earth with an ever-increasing frequency. North America was hit the hardest making most of the large cities unsafe for human habitation. Constant, unseasonable storms of tremendous force plagued the homeless millions who had escaped with their lives.
The explosive impact of the asteroid, which plunged into the Sea of Japan, created a mega-tsunami over 2,000 feet high. It rippled out in every direction hitting all the surrounding coastlines. In some places, it traveled more than 60 miles inland with enormous force. The tsunami's wave had engulfed large parts of Japan while thoroughly scrubbing the lands of North and South Korea of their buildings and infrastructure prior to receding. The asteroid impact had flash-melted large quantities of methane hydrates that were trapped in the fast ice of the sea floor, which bubbled to the surface, and into the air with eruptive force. The methane gas, mixed with the massive amounts of vaporized seawater, dramatically changed the atmospheric pressure and created a hurricane-sized storm within hours. Nebulous, methane clouds circulated amongst those made of water vapor. The clouds passed over parts of Mainland China and Russia. Normally benign bolts of lightning ignited the gas into exploding clouds. Instead of water rain, the storm flooded cities and farms with acid rain, mingled with methane hailstones, which flamed through the sky and pelted the earth with burning ice.
