A science fiction saga set on near-future Earth, The Tenth Planet challenges our basic beliefs about the solar system and ultimately our place in the universe with cutting-edge astronomy, blockbuster action, and high drama.After a deep-space satellite mysteriously stops transmitting, the Hubble III telescope picks up a startling image. Astronomers don’t know what the strange object is—only that it orbits past Earth every two millennia. Meanwhile, archaeologist Leo Cross has discovered peculiar layers of black residue at dig sites around the globe. Stranger still, these thin bands occur like clockwork every 2,006 years, coinciding with some of the world’s darkest moments in history. We have six months to prepare for the next arrival. This time we know something is coming. This time we have weapons to defend us. This time we’ll be wrong . . . again.
