Goodman's newest novel revolves around scandal in a science lab, where Cliff's virus, designed to defeat cancer, is suddenly successful after two years with no results. When Robin, another researcher in the lab, finds a second set of notes that contradict the published results, questions are raised, and answers are sought. Jenna Stern reads this story of scientific investigation and inquiry with an even tone that is void of emotional involvement. The lack of voicings makes the characters difficult to differentiate. The slow pace of scientific research is mimicked by the pace of the action, testing the stamina of the listener. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
