In the notorious Bermuda Triangle, a private jet vanishes without a trace, taking with it scientists working for the world-famous philanthropist Joaquin Abell. Meanwhile, Captain Kyle Sears is called to a murder scene in Miami. A woman and her daughter have both been shot through the head. But within moments of arriving, Sears receives a phone call from the woman’s husband, physicist Charles Purcell.
“I did not kill my wife and child,” he says. “In less than twenty-four hours I will be murdered and I know the man who will kill me. My murderer does not yet know that he will commit the act.” With uncanny accuracy, Purcell goes on to predict the immediate future just as it unfolds around Sears, and leaves clues for a man he’s never met, former war correspondent Ethan Warner.
The hunt is on to find Purcell, and Warner is summoned by the Defense Intelligence Agency to lead the search. But this is no ordinary case, as Warner and his partner, Nicola Lopez, are about to discover. The future has changed its course, and timing is everything. The end is just beginning . . .
Relentlessly fast-paced and action-packed, Apocalypse combines realistic science, suspense, and intrigue to create an ingenious blockbuster thriller.

THE BOOKISH DAME REVIEWS :
This is the third installment in a series Mr. Crawford is writing, but it is also an easy stand-alone novel. It's fast paced, highly readable and a book crafted for those who are avid researchers into the unexplainable such as the Bermuda Triangle!
Characterization is strong here with believable and likeable characters in the detectives Warner and Lopez. They are intelligent and have good "bantering" skills that keeps the action moving in a direction that harbors the foreboding. I can see how these two would make a solid footing for Crawford's continuing series.
I found the scientific information daunting at times, but as I pushed through it it became more clear, and the story held its own. I think those more inclined will find the book a fascinating read.
This is one for a quiet weekend at home. It kept me guessing and kept my attention throughout. One I think men should especially enjoy. Suspenseful!
3.5 stars Deborah/TheBookishDame
