Wilson Dowling is sent from the future to the present day to address the "Schumann Frequency", which has the power to slow the speed of time.
Clues buried deep within the Dead Sea Scrolls have made this Dowling's mission - he must open three energy portals hidden within the most famous archaeological sites on Earth. Wilson has to move quickly as forces of opposition mount against him, forces which threaten to unravel his mission and decide the fate of the entire planet.
An adventure not only through time and humanity, The Schumann Frequency races through various corners of the globe from the Mayan ruins in Mexico, to the Giza Pyramids in Egypt and finally Stonehenge for the book's thrilling climax. Christopher Ride takes you on a gripping journey that will keep you riveted until the very last page.

this is a book that begs for a negative rating
First, there is the book. Suddenly Dan Brown's books look tight, well-written and plausible -- by comparison. The language is painful, the leaps in the story incredible. When I though it couldn't get any worse, it did!
Then there is the narrator. I hope this was his first effort. In any case, I'd suggest that he not quit his day job. Of course, with material like this, I don't think anyone could do very well.
As I said in the subject line, this book deserves a negative rating. Save your money and time, give this book a miss.

How can something this bad get so many 5 stars
Maybe I've been spoiled by so many excellent writers and narrators available at audible.com, but this was below my minimum expectations. The dialog was just awful -- it's hard to tell if that's the fault of the wooden narration or the author's inability to write convincing dialog. Much of the story that occurs in the current time is shockingly implausible but the description of the future is downright absurd: a mail-man delivering packages and letters, written books abounding, scientists using palm handhelds...
I've never seen such a high percentage of 5 starts (6/8) for any audio book (especially with the other reviews panning the work). You should wonder about the authenticity of those 5 start reviews.
