The Rift is a non-stop adventure that combines the symbolism of Michaelangelo's Creation of Adam in the Sistine Chapel with all of the intrigue and suspense of the best thrillers and mysteries. This international thriller explores the origin of the human spirit, based on the most recent scientific research, including the latest discoveries in anthropology, space exploration, astronomy, and DNA-research. The reader is whisked away on an amazing, action packed journey from the Valley of the Rift, Africa, Cambridge, New York, and the Vatican, to Southern China, Hong Kong, and back again. Trying to solve the eternal puzzle of what makes us human is a thrill all by itself. The author's imagination combines both the scientific and religious explanations of humanity's origins within this fast moving story. Book cover: The Creation by Michaelangelo. The finger of God touches Adam with the spark (image courtesy of NASA) that makes us human.
