An arrogant scientist has successfully constructed a miniature black hole singularity in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Thanks to his ineptness and the failure of the French power grid, it get loose, dropping into the Earth. The black hole begins orbiting the planet's center of mass and slowly growing larger, consuming the Earth. Dr. Barney Freeman and U.S. Navy Lieutenant Nicole Shelton are tasked to stop it. They are t even sure how to reach it, until coming up with an audacious plan to extract the singularity from the Earth. In case they don't succeed, governments around the world frantically embark on a space race to build lifeboats to try to get at least some of humanity off the doomed planet. Nikki Shelton finds herself face to face with the singularity, and discovers that taming it may take everything she has, and just a bit more.
