In Douglas Preston's Blasphemy, the world's biggest supercollider, locked in an Arizona mountain, was built to unlock the secrets of the very moment of creation: the Big Bang itself. The Torus is the most expensive machine ever created by humankind, run by the world's most powerful supercomputer. It is the brainchild of Nobel Laureate William North Hazelius. Will the Torus divulge the mysteries of the creation of the universe? Or will it, as some predict, suck the earth into a mini black hole? Or is the Torus a Satanic attempt, as a powerful televangelist decries, to challenge God Almighty on the very throne of heaven? Twelve scientists under the leadership of a famed Nobel Laureate are sent to the remote mountain to turn it on...And what they discover must be hidden from the world at all costs. Wyman Ford, ex-monk and CIA operative, is tapped to wrest from the team their secret, a secret that will either destroy the world-or save it. The countdown begins...

1. this is more of a mystery than a SF.
2. the story takes a long time to get started (good that i listen with 1.4 speed)
3. the fundamentalist Christians premise is so 1980's tho.

A very interesting book. I found it almost on the lines of a Tony Hillerman style of book. It's a mystery and uses the Dine' (Navajo people) of Arizona. Not the greatest of books, but worth reading once. I would recommend it as one time read.
