Overview
A QUANTUM PHYSICS MURDER MYSTERY.
A Mind-Bending, Near-Future, Science Fiction Technothriller.
Jacob Kelley's family is turned upside down when an old friend turns up, waving a gun and babbling about an alien quantum intelligence. The mystery deepens when the friend is found dead in an underground bunker apparently murdered the night he appeared at Jacob's house. Jacob is arrested for the murder and put on trial.
As the details of the crime slowly come to light, the weave of reality becomes ever more tangled, twisted by a miraculous new technology and a quantum creature unconstrained by the normal limits of space and matter. With the help of his daughter, Alessandra, Jacob must find the true murderer before the creature destroys his family and everything he loves."

In this diverting hybrid of science and mystery, Walton (Quintessence) magnifies the weirdness of quantum physics, in which electrons can diffract (bend) around barriers, to produce a world where bullets do the same. Physicist Jacob Kelley, product of the tough streets of South Philly, is entangled in the murder of a former colleague from the wonderfully mythical New Jersey Super-Collider facility. Kelley finds himself split into parallel tracks as he occupies two lives simultaneously: in one he is on trial for the murder, while in the other his colleague is alive and he remains free. Walton admirably minimizes the confusion of the multiple viewpoints, and he cleverly integrates the science as part of the plot. Mystery fans may notice the solution being telegraphed, and science fiction fans may be disappointed that certain matters are never resolved, but all should be pleased by the touching conclusion. (Apr.)
