Publisher's Summary

In Australia... a U.S. Air Force computer operator receives a terrifying radio transmission out of Ayers Rock that knocks out the world's communications.
In New Mexico... a boozy college engineering professor is suddenly escorted into a waiting car by two armed military men.
In New York... a tall, slender woman leaves her husband a note on the refrigerator saying that she's leaving - but can't tell him where she's going.
In Colombia... a Special Forces officer breaks into a drug kinpin's bedroom and puts a bullet into a woman's brain before running to a waiting helicopter.
And in England... a beautiful 23-year-old mathematician prepares for a journey that will change her life forever.
The team assembles in Australia on a mission that can save the world. But first, they must figure out who is the message coming from? What are they trying to tell mankind? And can it be deciphered in time before Armageddon overtakes the world?
It's about a bomb, it's about a world about to be shattered. It's about the last few days they have to save us all.


What the Critics Say

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book was painful to say the least, I have listened to twenty five books this fall and this one was not worth the time it took to hear it.

What didn’t you like about Martin Gollery’s performance?

Martin gollery needs to find another line of work he is NOT quality. My nine year old son reads better.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Both anger and disappointment. Anger for having spent money on trash and disappointment in audible for selling trash. Did anyone review this book before you started to sell it.

Read the book instead

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The reader was horrible. A good (or maybe even just competent) narrator could have done much more for this book.

Would you recommend The Rock to your friends? Why or why not?

No. Painful to listen too.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Martin Gollery?

Scott Brick would have done this story well.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. The story is somewhat interesting, but the bad narration was so distracting it was hard to concentrate on the story.
