At first, the lizzard of sub-nuclear particles seemed random. But soon a pattern emerges that could only have come from an alien intelligence far more advanced than our own. Now it's up to Irish mathematician Tom Petrie to decode these messages and unlock their secret -- one that is believed to contain an unimaginable technological breakthrough, and has the power to change the course of human history...unless the world's superpowers succeed in suppressing the truth. Can Petrie and his team unmask the message's true intent while evading those who aim to crush its extraordinary revelations. A desperate race against time -- and through space -- is about to begin

"Fred Findhorn has just landed on an unstable Arctic iceberg to dig through the wreckage of a 1944 Russian military aircraft. His mission: to recover the frozen body of brilliant atomic scientist Lev Petrosian and a briefcase, containing top-secret documents about the clandestine meeting to which he was headed before the crash ... But, as Findhorn is about to discover, there are other scientists, government officials, and rogue operatives who will do anything to learn Petrosian{u2019}s secrets, and are willing to kill to keep them buried."--Page 4 of cover
Shattered icon by Bill Napier( Book )

"Harry Blake appreciates the quiet life. As an antique-map dealer in a small English town, he rarely strays from the straight and narrow. But when a local landowner asks him to value a four-hundred-year-old journal and is then brutally murdered, Harry's peace of mind is shattered." "What does the dusty journal contain that is a matter of life or death? Why is someone prepared to pay Harry a fortune to get hold of it? He turns to marine historian Zola Khan to uncover the mysteries." "The trail of the journal leads them into a world of deadly Elizabethan conspiracies, and the thread of history takes them through a thousand years of religious intrigue back to the blood-soaked Crusades and the secret location of an ancient holy relic." "Can Harry and Zola find the missing piece of a celestial puzzle that is attracting some particularly violent and single-minded adversaries? Their journey takes them to the beautiful Caribbean island of Jamaica, but dark shadows are lengthening and at stake are millions of dollars and a terrorist plot to trigger nothing less than war."--BOOK JACKET
Comets and the origin of life by Janaki Wickramasinghe( Book )
14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 179 libraries worldwide
"The idea that comets may be connected with the origin of life on Earth was considered heresy a few decades ago, with scientists shying away from this possibility as if from a medieval superstition. However the case that comets may have contributed at least the complex organic building blocks of life has become very strong, and mechanisms have now been identified whereby comets may incubate and transfer microbial life from one cosmic habitat to another in the Galaxy. The latter process cometary panspermia was pioneered by the late Sir Fred Hoyle and one of the present authors in the early 1980's. A theory that was once controversial is slowly gaining scientific respectability and support. The recent surge of interest in astrobiology has led to a spate of books in astrobiology - combining astronomy and biology - but in most of these, cometary panspermia is dealt with only cursorily. The present book sets out the case for cometary panspermia in a cogent way, combining evidence from space science, celestial mechanics, geology and microbiology. It should be an essential part of any university course on astrobiology, and also serve as a reference textbook for researchers in the field."--Page 4 of cover
