An asteroid impacts Earth, forever changing life on our planet. Only the object isn't an asteroid.
For 32 years archaeologist Julius Gabriel investigated the Mayan calendar, a 2,500-year-old enigma of time and space that predicts humanity will perish on December 21, 2012 (the winter solstice). Julius believes that certain mysterious sites - the Great Pyramid of Giza; Stonehenge; the giant desert drawings of the Nazca Plateau; the temple of Angkor Wat; the Pyramid of the Sun; and the key site, the Kukulcán Pyramid at Chichén Itzá in the Yucatán Peninsula, site of the ancient asteroid impact - represent pieces of a global puzzle linked to the salvation of our species. Ridiculed by his peers, Julius dies before he can solve the doomsday prophecy. Now only one person can prevent our annihilation: Julius' son, Michael, a patient locked up in a Miami mental asylum.
Miami, 2012. Psychology major Dominique Vazquez reports to a Miami asylum to complete her graduate internship. The new director assigns her to a special patient - Mick Gabriel, a paranoid schizophrenic with a high IQ. Mick attempts to charm her into believing his father's theories of the apocalypse so he can escape. What Dominique doesn't realize is that she represents Mick's last hope of saving humanity.
Fall equinox, 2012. As it has done for 1,000 years, a serpent's shadow appears on the northern balustrade of the Kukulcán Pyramid. As a rare galactic alignment occurs, a deep-space radio transmission reaches Earth, activating the remnants of an object buried long ago in the Gulf of Mexico. It is the beginning of the end.

Nice story... should have been abridged
The story in itself had a good format but I totally believe that the author was bound to a word count because there is so much of the book that is totally irrelevant because of the wordy content of the Characters. the character Dominique is one of the most educated stupid people I have ever read about in my life. This woman borders on an anti heroin because of her indecisiveness and willingness to not follow what's totally evident in front of her. if this is what the author wanted to portray this woman asked, he totally succeeded.

a decent book
I am a fan of many of the right as works. this piece was not one of his best but it wasn't bad. some of it tends to get a bit outlandish here in there. As usual however he draws you in with very interesting characters he is very good at getting you to care about. at some point it was a bit text bookie but all in all and enjoyable read.
