New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/06/2015 --Gary Grossman, author of the wildly popular Executive thriller series, returns with Old Earth, a thriller that weighs age-old arguments between science and religion in a high-octane novel that spans time and questions recorded history.
In the summer of 1601, Galileo Galilei made a startling discovery in the mountains of Eastern Italy that, if made public, could shatter faith in religion, bring down governments and lead to worldwide turmoil. For more than 400 years, the secret has been carefully guarded by a group of incredibly powerful people willing go to extremes in order to protect civilization. But now a university dig in Montana headed by paleontologists Quinn McCauley and Katrina Alpert threatens to expose the secret Galileo unearthed, the event that caused him to turn his study to the stars, and the long-buried reason the scientist was convicted of heresy by the Inquisition. McCauley and Alpert find themselves in a deadly global game of cat-and-mouse, seeking answers for a mystery that has endured for centuries.
New York Times bestselling author Steve Berry described Old Earth as "The perfect thriller." New York Times bestselling author CJ Lyons called it a "richly detailed and unique premise [that] will delight fans of Dan Brown and Michael Crichton." CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg said "Old Earth is a high energy combination of history and intrigue; a great book to bring along the next time you travel!"
Old Earth will be available on March 10 in print and eBook editions on all major retailers. Gary Grossman will be promoting Old Earth on KTLA Morning News, The Today Show, and PBS' Between the Lines with Barry Kibrick.
