Publisher Description

Stanley Huysman, a Nobel Prize–winning scientist, had spent his later years on far-out experiments never much heeded by the scientific community. Only after Huysman’s death does his visionary genius become clear, when his widow, Irma, arranges for Drew Lancaster to write the scientist’s biography. As Drew delves into Huysman’s notes, he discovers not only that the great scientist had actually been able to induce telepathy in his subjects by genetic manipulation, but also that Huysman’s assistant, Clyde Dohemy, has unscrupulously taken over the project in hopes of lucrative funding.

When Drew recruits his ex-wife, Irma, and a group of young people who knew about Huysman’s experiments to set a trap for Dohemy, they are drawn into a web of secrets involving Senate files, counterfeit money, gambling casinos, and the Secret Service.

    " One of the weaker books by Wilhelm, whose writing I usually greatly enjoy. This one here was pretty bland, I think, with a way too much constructed plot that was later on in the book explained as predetermined or whatever. Not really my cup of tea.... "

    " Was a fun read but I was left feeling like there was so much left unexplained. "
