Beautifully worked – a harrowing, atmospheric and fascinating novel, with sound research put to telling use . . . shockingly intimate, but with an epic feel.
‘A mystery story, a love story, a historical drama – I can’t imagine a reader who would not be moved by this book.’ Janice Galloway
‘A subtle and moving portrait of a man battling his own limitations, both in terms of scientific knowledge and personality . . . With pace and drama, Abrams tells a tale which is at once informative and emotionally rewarding.’ Scotsman
