Impact, a novel by Douglas Preston, was published on January 5, 2010 by Forge Books. It is the third book in the Wyman Ford series.[1]

Plot summary[edit]

Wyman Ford returns to investigate a mysterious source of gemstones and instead uncovers evidence of an unusual impact crater. Weaving seemingly separate stories of Wyman Ford's engagement by the government to investigate a meteorite's crater in Cambodia, a Mars Mission scientist's investigation into unusual gamma ray activity on that planet, and a waitress's adventurous trek into the Maine offshore islands to locate a meteor strike that others assumed hit the ocean, the author resolves the fast-moving plots steadily throughout the book, focusing the separate paths to a single conclusion that impacts the future of the entire planet.

The book was reviewed on All Things Considered in February 2010.

Timeline[edit]

The events in this novel follow those of The Codex, Tyrannosaur Canyon, and Blasphemy.
