Graham Trevennan has just been dumped by his girlfriend. That's not the problem. He's wanted by the police for a murder he didn't commit. That's not the problem, either. But around the world, dormant volcanoes are suddenly erupting and impossibly complex crystal meteorites are falling out of the sky in a way that probably isn't coincidental.

Now, the CIA, the army and at least one terrifyingly beautiful treasure hunter all seem to think that shooting Graham will somehow help them get hold of these priceless, extraterrestrial crystals. That is a problem.

Graham's mission is to avoid getting killed, figure out whose side he is on and save the world. In the end, he manages two out of three. Which for a beginner, isn't bad.


Praise and Reviews:

"A technothriller with a peculiarly British tone jaunty and self-deprecating it hinges on a couple of neat high-concept ideas... The novel's science and SF aspects cannot be faulted, and it's a fun read." - Financial Times

"Evoking The War Of The Worlds, there's a suitably alien quality about the comet-esque devices... as Villazon makes some intriguing connections between vulcanology and the outer space invaders. A promising first effort." - SFX Magazine
