Angular Trifecta

When the Space Force went to war with the Slorgs, it caused more than military fatalities.  The faction of the Humans suffered a divisional rift along ideological lines that caused a group of separatists to realize their pacifist vision by seceding away from the megapower in order to form Galaxy Bloc.  Located deep within the Quadron System, their upstart vulnerability is seen by the enemies of Humanity as an exploitable weakness.  So sets the stage for the events on the planet Dio Qze and enters its respective trinity of players: Enderbrook Boyd - an Enforcer using black ops to try and lure the assemblage of unincorporated planets back into the Space Force fold.  Janette Ueberrhein - a botanist whose purpose is to avert a mortgage crisis having little to do with the economic arbitrage opportunities of the greedy and everything to do with the bioterrorist acts of the shady.  Burdlit Giz - the operational general, a reptilian (in appearance) Carriveaua who offers kind and timely assistance to the fledgling faction.  But why do these three really do what they do?  Because everybody has an angle to play.  This is the answer to the question but not necessarily the question which should be asked - that being the angle.  Because the stakes are so high.  A no-brainer of sorts, time would be much better spent in attempting to prevent the lengths at which an adversary would go to achieve them.  Because two (perceived) wrongs do not make a right.  But three do make it interesting.  Just because.  Angular Trifecta - three people, three agendas, three objectives - one stage, one opportunity, one chance.

About the author

I'd written a trio of micro-stories in mid-2011 - one for each of three different characters, that allowed me to tell their individual perspectives surrounding the same sequence of events.  Revisited months later, it became the pilot for a serialized Angular Trifecta which ran weekly over the course of a year from 2011 through 2012.  This release is its 52-chapter compilation.  With creative bandwidth being functionally limited, random projects rarely see the green light of day.  But when universe-building, it's often this randomness that lends additional breadth to the effort - a convincing argument for the enormity of its potential.

The #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2017) from the author of The Da Vinci Code.
 
Bilbao, Spain
 
Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.
     As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.
     Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Langdon and Vidal must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace itself . . . and who will stop at nothing to silence Edmond Kirsch. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon and Vidal uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery . . . and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.
 
Origin is stunningly inventive—Dan Brown's most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.
