Abstract:

The planet's only hope lies in the brilliant minds of a father and son, Cyrus and Leiden Hudder - minds singularly linked in the mission to save life on Earth, but separated by a lifetime of misunderstanding and resentment which culminated in Cyrus's disappearance in the early 1980s. In the embers of the first atomic explosion at White Sands during WW II, Cyrus Hudder discovers an extraordinary new crystal, harder than diamond, impossible to melt. Cyrus has long dreamed of drilling down to the Earth's core; now, if he lines the hole with ``hudderite,'' the idea seems feasible.
