Out of the Sun by Robert Goddard

Out of the Sun - Robert Goddard

 

“The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.”― Niels Bohr

11 hours 55 mins read by Paul Shelley.

Blurb: The presumably childless Harry Barnett, living a quiet, aimless life in Britain, receives an anonymous call informing him that his son, a brilliant mathematician, is comatose. Worse, the son's condition is probably not accidental. His notebooks are missing; people around him are dying under mysterious circumstances. Harry, introduced in Goddard's Into the Blue, finds a new sense of purpose with the discovery that he is a father, and he begins to investigate what happened and why. The answer lies under layers of deceit, greed, fear, madness, and genius and leads Harry into unexpected byways...



HAH - many have read this since I last did - it goes in the 'under 1000' shelf now. If I remember rightly, this does suffer middle of trilogy syndrome...

LATER - ooo, how wrong I was in thinking this subsidiary, the passing of time can distort memory - I love the science conspirarcy here.

"The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”― Isaac Asimov
