Stephen Shelby, astronomer and well-known science writer, finds himself drawn into a mysterious and deadly search for the origins of the universe. A world-class team of physicists and cosmologist have been secretly convened to access the problem of dark matter, and several members have died under suspicious circumstances. One of their number is a killer, but who?
At the center of the mystery is renowned physicist Noah Narbi, the wheelchair-bound winner of two Nobel Prizes - and the present husband of Shelbys ex-wife Diana, who continues to wield an erotic power over him. Shelby and Narbi are bitter rivals, but they must put aside their animosity and delve into the darkest regions of the human heart and mind, as they struggle to find and expose a merciless killer whose greed for fame and immortality is exceeded only by his (or is it her?) genius for murder.
