On a dare, grad student Jessica Evans writes a thriller, creating a nightmare scenario based upon the theory that the speed of light is not a constant-one that has a dark application. Her protagonist (the fiancé of a scientist killed in a car crash) is pursued by those who want to use the theory to create the world's most powerful weapon.
  Jessica's research into the science stirs up concern from an extremist group intending to use it for evil. Before long, Jessica's life mimics that of her protagonist, as she runs from terrorist conspirators who suspect she may try to stop them from causing a major disaster. As the clock ticks down, Jessica must put the pieces together and avert a global catastrophe.

Intriguing opening! My only question is: Why was Kevin’s only option to kill Fred?

Cool. I'm also interested in physics so this is right up my alley! Great beginning :)

Ahhh, cliche beginnings. The bane of every writer.
                              I feel ya, Jess.

The beginning reminds me of that movie, I believe it's called Stranger Than Fiction where a man discovers that he's in a novel

I like this excerpt. Reminds me what it's like to be a creative writer.
