Science, philosophy, religion and science fiction blend in a satisfying, fine thriller that examines life after death in telling of a particle physicist who strives to protect his young daughter from harm, even after he's killed in a car-jacking on his way to Switzerland to investigate breakthroughs at the Large Hadron Collider. Through his will in the after-life he achieves answers to huge mysteries in order to save his daughter, and his journey between worlds will change the nature of reality itself in this engrossing book about love, the human spirit, and a never-ending science investigation.
