About the Book

On a winter morning, an engineer invites his three children to descend with him into a deep diamond mine. On this trip, the youngest son finds a black-stained crystal. In adulthood, he donates his find to a city museum where it remains forgotten in a drawer for a century, gathering dust among many other mineral samples. Professor Adam Chonsp is a renowned astrobiologist who has been searching for evidence of life beyond Earth for decades. One day when he stops by the London History Museum to collect samples of asteroids rich in organic compounds that have recently arrived from Japan, he learns that someone with his maternal surname once donated a rare crystal filled with fossilized genetic memories to the museum. Curious, he finds where the gem is kept, opens the dusty drawer, and places the mysterious crystal in his pocket. After returning to the university, Chonsp embarks on a determined quest to analyze the crystal and learn more without any idea that he is about to make an amazing discovery that leads him down a path he never expected. In this exciting science fiction adventure, an astrobiologist and his students study an ancient crystal that may just hold the key to uncovering the mysteries of the universe.
