Algorithm by Arthur M. Doweyko

Algorithm is a fast-paced, science fiction mystery/thriller. Using real science and real events, we are drawn through a rapidly unfolding series of discoveries and adventures, which  ultimately lead to a surprising view of mankind’s purpose  on Earth. The story has been likened to Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider in space.

A gold medallion found in a lump of coal  sets the  stage for two scientists, Adam Dove and  Linda Garcia, who struggle to discover its origin and  meaning. Analyses reveal it to be millions of years old, containing a sequence of symbols resembling a computer program. Besides dealing with the paradigm-shifting implications of  this  finding, they are pursued by a Nazi underground bent on retrieving the disk and a mysterious alien presence, which may be more  interested in destroying it. Ultimately, Adam and Linda face the most difficult decision of their lives, one which offers the answer to mankind's purpose on Earth, but at the cost of leaving behind all that they know and love. 

"Hard science fiction is always a trick to pull off, but Arthur Doweyko's novel, Algorithm, does it, and he takes you places you didn't expect to go. It's a fun ride, and if you pay attention, you might find yourself learning some things you didn't know. Nice job, Arthur."
—Steve Perry  New York Times Bestselling Author of The Vastalimi Gambit

"THE ACTION CONTINUES TO THE END … Hardly anything is what it seems to be. Genre readers should enjoy it; I did."
—Piers Anthony  Author of the Xanth fantasy series

An intriguing story from the beginning. OLD SCHOOL HARD SCIENCE FICTION about the modern biological sciences and nanotechnology. I loved it.
—Jerry Pournelle  Heinlein Award Winner; Denizen of Chaos Manor
