    Review quote
    "'A thriller and a page-turner... Brilliant.' Lionel Shriver 'A thriller and a page-turner about scientific fraud. Brilliant.' Lionel Shriver 'Every character here - even the minor ones - is endowed by their creator with the fullest complements of flaws, tics, vices, strengths, virtues and moments of nobility.' Washington Post '[Goodman's] characters so live and breathe on the page that they could get up and make you a cup of coffee while you finish the next chapter. Intuition is a stunning achievement.' Economist"
