I have to be honest, I've enjoyed other Ken Follett novels much more than The Hammer of Eden. I found this book somewhat far-fetched at times, not only the action carrying the plot but also the interaction among key characters. I respect Ken Follett too much not to have finished the book, but I was looking forward to being done with it so I could start another book.

The one thing Californians fear most is a full-scale earthquake. The thing Priest fears most is the destruction of his commune in the Sierra Nevada foothills – the one place he can hide from his mobster past. He has to make the Governor of California listen to him. And now he has a way. He knows how to create an earthquake. And if his demands aren't met, the next quake is just 48 hours away...

The Hammer of Eden is a story where the bad guys figure out how to cause an earthquake. They use a machine called a seismic vibrator which is an enormous hammer mounted on the back of a truck. It is usually used to find oil. The hammer sends shockwaves through the earth's crust and the reflections of the vibrations are then mapped to show the sub-surface of the earth.
