In 2007, nations are on the brink of a global financial catastrophe that threatens to bring down civilization.
This is a diversion.
In a world where money is the most powerful asset, a mysterious cabal is fighting a war of attrition with CERN to prevent humanity rediscovering the truth about the source of real power.
After a brief chance encounter with his childhood sweetheart Esther, abducted immediately after, ex-special forces Lieutenant Colonel Ben Fallow gets drawn into a deadly personal mission.
A group of people, thrown together by chance, are the only ones that can help keep the Large Hadron Collider operational.
With the help of a man known only as The Historian, Ben must re-learn skills lost to humanity over millennia, help Professor Ebhart Fenkhause realize his life's work of seeking out the God particle at CERN and, in turn, begin to free the flow of power held back from the many by The Watchmen.
