In Blasphemy, a science-meets-religion thriller, God isn’t in the details — but in the circuitry. When a $40 billion supercomputer built to re-create the Big Bang accidentally opens communication with an entity claiming to be the Almighty, former monk and onetime CIA agent Wyman Ford is sent in to investigate if it’s divine intervention or an elaborate hoax. Doubtful that potboiler action and philosophical debate can merge successfully? Well, you’ll become a true believer thanks to Douglas Preston’s skillful balance of deep thoughts, slow-burn tension, and vivid characters — especially a self-involved TV evangelist with a sordid past. B+
