"We will be the men that history remembers." This is the mantra of Oxford history professor Henry Blake as he approaches the final years of his life without the proper legacy to his name. When ancient ruins are found beneath the waves of the South Pacific, Blake seizes the opportunity and forms a team of scientists to explore them. William Kirk, the primary archaeologist of Blake's company, has been embittered by a recent divorce, going so far as to dive into alcoholism and even consider taking his own life. Left disenchanted and cynical, Kirk hesitantly accepts the invitation and finds he and the rest of the crew aboard StarLab, an experimental underwater habitat perched on the ocean floor. Upon exploring the ruins, Kirk has an encounter with a mysterious figure who appears to impossibly be living within the complex. Though the others immediately pass off the sighting as a hallucination, Kirk discovers that the entity--a beautiful woman--is not only very real, but is guarding a potentially earth-shattering secret: the alleged...and legendary...tomb of God. But they soon discover that what has the power to change the world also has the power to destroy it. And Kirk must decide how far he will go--and what he is willing to sacrifice--to protect the enigmatic woman and the secret she guards...but not for reasons he would have ever expected. Science, faith, philosophy, love, fate...it all blends beautifully into 'Calypso,' a story that challenges proponents of all sides. Interweaving religious mythology with cutting edge scientific history, Brent Saltzman creates an organic tapestry that pays equal respect to both while offering up a tale that defies fate and asks the ultimate question: "Was it meant to be?"Biografía del autor:
The grandson of the late Sergeant E.B. Saltzman of the D.C. police department, Brent Andrew Saltzman was born in Fairfax, VA in 1988. His first novels were published while still in high school and were deeply influenced by the writings of the late Michael Crichton. Growing up in a struggling family, Saltzman moved around southern Maryland for most of his life until finally settling in northern Virginia, where he lettered in football and contributed film reviews to online magazines. He is an avid supporter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society after losing "two very important people" to cancer. He graduated from Radford University in 2011 and currently resides in the D.C. area.
