An Amoral Mad Scientist and His Quest for Scientific Justice

Dr. Faraday Heron: brilliant academic, nuclear research pioneer, loner, envious younger son . . . murderer.

He may have grown up in his brother's shadow, but Faraday won't let anything stand in the way of his research. Given the choice between funding for his work and a clean, honest life, he kills without compunction-but with explosive consequences.
