Vortex in Time
Mr. Larry G Patten
A strange phenomenon has occurred that appears to have changed the very relationship between space and time. As the Earth reaches a certain point in its path around the sun a distortion in time occurs. One of the effects is that atomic clocks no longer sync together. Digital communications is disrupted and two airplanes crash after they appear to both occupy the same space on their approach to the airport. It was as if they merged together becoming one. Each time the earth passes through that spot in its orbit the effect is more intense than the last time. Bryon works for the National Telecommunications and Information Agency and in his job monitors a number of Atomic Standards. He is the first to notice the problem. Bryon leads a team of scientists to determine what is going wrong with time. They determine that the earth is headed for a vortex in time. Was it caused by a collider experiment gone wrong? What will happen when the earth passes through the vortex? Will anyone survive? Will Bryon and his team of scientists be able to find a solution in time?
This book will have you turning page after page to find the answers! The exciting action and vivid portrayal of the effects of this time vortex will have you watching for a time vortex in the world today!
