Summary
Guy Carpenter works at NASA and has a devoted wife and new baby -- a comfortable life. But things take a turn when he lands in an international scandal. Years ago, Guy worked on the Superconducting Super Collider, a government project dedicated to detecting an elusive particle, the Higgs boson. Congress cut the project short, but now the Chinese claim to have found the boson. How did the Chinese surpass American science? What about military implications? Is it time to start casting Hollywood's first boson-based blockbuster? An expert must assess this threat. Guy is propelled into the center, an old love resurfaces, a new romance beckons, and the breakup of his marriage threatens. In the meantime, Congress holds hearings, Hollywood comes courting, the CIA investigates, and a reporter dogs his every step
