Publisher's Summary

“Readers will fully engage with the well-drawn characters as Parks convincingly reveals the science that buttresses the suspenseful plot. Michael Crichton fans won’t want to miss this one.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

From international best-selling author Brad Parks comes an emotional, heart-pounding thriller that explores the scientific unknown - and one woman’s efforts to save her husband from its consequences.

Quantum physicist Matt Bronik is suffering from strange, violent seizures that medical science seems powerless to explain - much to the consternation of his wife, Brigid.

Matt doesn’t think these fits could be related to his research, which he has always described as benign and esoteric. That, it turns out, is not quite true: Matt has been prodding the mysteries of the quantum universe, with terrible repercussions for his health. And perhaps even for humanity as a whole. 

Then, in the midst of another seizure, Matt disappears. When foul play is feared, there is no shortage of suspects. Matt’s research had gained the attention of Chinese competitors, an unscrupulous billionaire, and the Department of Defense, among others.With Matt’s life in clear danger, Brigid sets out to find him. Will Matt be killed before she reaches him, or could the physics that endangered him actually be used to save his life?

Critic Reviews

"A smart, innovative thriller that evokes the best of Michael Chrichton and Blake Crouch. Parks proposes the seemingly improbable, makes it plausible, then weaves in twists and turns, taking the reader on a mind-bending ride." (Robert Dugoni, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Amazon best-selling author of the Tracy Crosswhite series)

"Interference brings all the right ingredients to a novel! Brad Parks has created a story with a fascinating plot line and great characters - an up-all-night page-turner. I loved it!" (Heather Graham, New York Times best-selling author)

"Utterly absorbing, relentlessly paced, and cunningly assembled. Brad Parks is the sort of master craftsman who makes everything look easy. I hate him a little bit." (Marcus Sakey, Wall Street Journal best-selling author of Afterlife)

This is some real weak tea.

Eye rolls throughout. I’m sure others have mentioned this but ALL kidnappings are the purview of the FBI. that includes ones involving national security. Especially those.

Too much talking

The story line is interesting, but maybe 10 percent of the book is related to the story, the rest is too much talk about unrelated subjects. it feels like the writer had a great idea for a short story, but wanted to make it a novel, so they added fillers.

Great narration, decent writing, thin plot.

First of all the Author is a good writer, and the narration is excellent (Christopher Lane) -but I expected a little more "science" based on the publisher's summary. I was much more interested in parts of the story dealing with the science. Then it would lapse into romance novel territory with the female character droning on and on about stuff that seemed pointless to the story. How she felt about this or that. (The hearing impairment part of it was something that will be highly relatable to anyone who has gone through it.)

+1 for the cop and +1 one for the kidnapped physicist. They were interesting characters.

All in all I would still recommend this book to folks who like a good crime thriller with the proviso that it's a bit pedestrian.

Excellent story but terrible narration

Unique scientific and billionaire investor intrigue built into a kidnapping for ransom story. Interesting characters. Realistic plot twists. A very worthwhile listen if you can tolerate really poor narration and some weak audio production (sometimes tough to hear the voices).

Suboptimal

It began with an interesting Sci-Fi premise - quantum interference/entanglement of humans. It turned into a good whodunit and it kept me listening, so in that respect it was a good read. But by the time I finished it i felt like I had been listening to a telenovela with the most perfect people on the planet aligned up against the forces of disorder and avarice. The voice of the NH State Policeman, Emmett, was perfect and I always enjoyed sections where he was involved. Bridget was a overwrought and tedious. I liked the setting at Dartmouth and NH in general. I was looking for a sci-fi when, but would say it fell a little short in that respect.

Not enough science

I enjoyed this, but I wish it had been more science fiction than just fiction. There were some good characters and the writing was a high standard, but the plot involving the search for the missing husband was a bit linear. I would have ultimately liked more to happen and definitely more of the sciencey stuff, but the writing style was still very engaging and I will look out for more from this author, in the hope of a meatier plot.
