This image is the cover for the book Nemesis


Five days to save the world.

A shocking CIA report confirms Russia has deflected an asteroid on to a collision course with the United States. An elite team of the world’s top astronomers have five days to identify the asteroid – codename Nemesis – and stop it.

If they fail, the President will retaliate with a massive nuclear strike.

But with time running out, British asteroid expert Oliver Webb discovers that its course was once predicted in an obscure seventeenth-century manuscript, the only copy of which has gone mysteriously missing…

Nemesis is an ingenious and utterly gripping thriller, perfect for fans of Dan Brown, Scott Mariani and Andy McDermott.

Bill Napier

Bill Napier is a Scottish astronomer. He has worked at observatories in Edinburgh, Rome and Armagh in Northern Ireland. He is an honorary Professor at the University of Buckingham in England, and now lives in Southern Ireland with his wife, dividing his time between writing novels, working with colleagues worldwide and trying to cook. A Mars-crossing asteroid, 7096 Napier, has been named in recognition of Bill’s work. It's not yet a collision hazard.
